40 individuals were given the distinct honor of being banned from attending a Bush speech scheduled for thursday. It should seem clear that there is something seriously wrong with a president who bans High School students from his speeches, but I'm sure someone will create some sort of misguided rationale in support of king bush.

Some in Fargo find they're not wanted at president's speech

City Commissioner Linda Coates says she was shocked to learn she and her husband were among more than 40 area residents on a list of people barred from attending President Bush's speech here Thursday.

The list was supplied to workers at the two Fargo distribution sites, along with tickets and other forms citizens were asked to fill out, The Forum reported.

The list includes critics of Bush or the war in Iraq. It includes two high school students, a librarian, a deputy Democratic campaign manager and a number of university professors.

Coates said she originally was not planning to attend the president's speech, but got a last-minute ticket Wednesday night from Fargo Mayor Bruce Furness, who offered tickets to all city commissioners.

White House spokesman Jim Morrell and Don Larson, a spokesman for Gov. John Hoeven's office, said they knew nothing about a list of people barred from the speech.

"This is the first I'm hearing of it," Morrell said Wednesday.

Coates said she had no idea why she would be on a list, other than the fact that she has been outspoken in her political beliefs.

"I thought that was democracy," she said.

"To me, this is very revealing as to what this administration is all about - someone who doesn't want disagreement," said Coates, whose husband, Mike, is also on the list. "That's not healthy."

Also on the list was James Holm, the producer of "The Ed Schultz Show," and Berrett Gall, the former deputy campaign manager for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Joe Satrom. Holm, a staunch Democrat, said he felt honored.

The Forum said many on the list are current or former members of the Fargo-Moorhead Democracy for America Meetup Group, a local group working for "socially progressive" candidates.

Morrell said the White House is not directly involved in the ticket distribution but works with state and local officials to coordinate the process.

"I'm not aware of any list or of anyone being denied," he said.

Larson, Hoeven's spokesman, echoed that statement.

"I don't know anything about the list," he said. "No one was denied tickets."

Local High School Janitor Raul Consuelo said he was apalled when he found out that he and his baby momma was on a list of a few billion people that couldn't attend President Bush's birthday party

The list was supplied to a Chucky Cheese's along with party invitations that guests were supposed to R.S.V.P., Dubcc reported

The list includes people Bush doesn't give a fuck about and doesn't feel like having at his birthday party. It includes porn stars, a shitload of high school students, and a bunch of other butt hurt people that just wanted to go to complain about things.

Raul said he didn't even know that a birthday party was being held but since he has a stick up his ass, he felt that he should have been invited.

White House spokesman Jim Morrell and Don Larson, a spokesman for Gov. John Hoeven's office, said they knew nothing about a list of people barred from the birthday celebration.

"This is the first I'm hearing of it," Morrell said Wednesday.

Raul said he had no idea why he would be on a list, other than the fact that Bush doesn't feel like having him there.

"I thought that was decomracy," he said.

"To me this is fucked up, that's my word son. Shows what kind of cracker, racist we got in office yo" said Raul, Whose baby momma Rosalita, is also on the list. "That's WACK."

Also on the list is people that President Bush decided he didn't want to go. I'm on that list and I really don't give a shit.

This Forum said many on the list are morons that don't get that President Bush can invite whoever he wants to whatever he wants.

Morrell said the White House is not directly involved in the ticket distribution but works with state and local officials to coordinate the process.

"I'm not aware of any list or of anyone being denied but who the fuck cares?" he said.

Larson, Hoeven's spokesman, echoed that statement.

"I don't know anything about the list," he said. "No one was denied tickets and even if they were, good for them. They are gonna miss out on a night of torturing detainees, and Satan worshiping."
