IJ Watch--Trolling for Local Reaction to Bush Speech Before It's Given

Perusing the Marin IJ Website, I noticed that the newspaper is asking for local reaction to President Bush's speech tonight about Iraq.

In a notice posted at 11:14 a.m. PST on January 10th, the IJ asked for reaction to the speech, plus name, address and phone number to be sent to reporter Jennifer Upshaw. Bush's speech is scheduled for 6 p.m. PST.

I e-mailed Jennifer and asked her what the rush was to getting local reaction. I guess they're trolling for comments by Marin's hate-America first crowd. Without the benefit of a crystal ball, I can tell already what quotes will appear in tommorrow's IJ in reaction to the speech.

"Troops out now"

"No more troops, bring them home"

"Impeach Bush and Cheney"
