Top Secret V.P. shake up to be announced

        I, Tommy B. Bibey, have it on good authority that a major Presidential Party announcement is imminent.  The top secret selection of a new V.P. choice is slated for release this weekend, Saturday, September 13th, in Brevard, N.C. 

       Sam Bush, multiple award winning mandolinist, and here-to-fore (but not for long) thwarted Presidential aspiree plans to announce his surprise choice for running mate of (insert drum roll here)  ta-dah…

        Tim O’Brien!!

        If they win, I’m gonna put in for Surgeon General.  I am confident they’ll want a mandolin doc in the Cabinet, or at least one who’d carry the case to gigs, anyway.  I hope they’ll pick me and y’all will support me.

        Gotta crunk up the old Neuse River converted school bus and hit the road.  We’ve got a gig and they say you can only get ten gallons of gas at a time this week-end.  It might take us a while to get there.  Not to fear, though.  Part of Sam’s platform is a fuel tax break for working bluegrass bands.  Talk to you Monday.

    I can imagine the platform of the bluegrass party.
    1. The words may be sad, but the tune’s happy. We believe in double messages.
    2. Stay in tune.
    3. Harmony is all.
    4. If it doesn’t have a banjo, it ain’t bluegrass
    5. Music is an international, universal language.
    6. Folks is folks.
    7. Support your fellow bluegrasser.
    8. Avoid too many murder ballads
    9. Sing at least two Gospel songs per set.
    10. We’re all in this together.

    Have a good weekend. I’ll be looking for you there, but I still don’t know what to look for. There’s 1800 seats in the auditorium. – Ted

    I have already nominated the English Professor for Secretary of State.

    I love your platform but number one is extra good.

    Look for the cat who favors Captain Kangaroo.

    Well if you favor Captain Kangaroo, Mr. Greenhouse will be right at home in his “green jeans”. lol

    You all have my vote. Not only is music universal….it can calm the “savage beast”. So, you all might have a chance.

    Ranger Dog is patrolling the perimeter waiting for the Neuse River Bus. He still isn’t quite sure about Moose. But, he says that he kinda likes that doctor fella. Since his “accident” he appreciates the medical professionals. And, you have his vote for Surgeon General…just bring him a big ole bone!

    Ms Cindy,

    Our background check on Ranger Dog indicates he has done well enough in obedience school to serve as Top Dog for Administration Canine Security Services.

    We hope he will consider service in the Bluegrass Party. Of course, Mr. Green Jeans and Ms. Cindy would be requested to accompany him on all his missions.

    Thank heavens! Finally, some brains, creativity and kindness in Washington!

  6. drtombibey Says:

    Baby Bibey,

    I nominate you to be in charge of Central Intelligence.

    Dr. B

  7. Cindy Carter Says:

    Ranger Dog says that he’s be honored. Mr. Greenhouse and I want to know if we get our own secret service agents? If we do, I would like Ernest T. Bass. He has a really good pitchin arm.

    Ranger Dog wants some of those really cool sunglasses and a badge.

  8. drtombibey Says:

    Ms, Cindy,

    If Sam and Tim get elected, consider it done.

    Nothing wrong with the Bluegrass Party. I’m thinking the other two are talking circles anyway. It’s time for a change!


  10. drtombibey Says:

    Ms. Pande,

    We would like to see all press conferences open with music. As much as I love bluegrass, I believe we should be eclectic in our choices. Should Sam and Tim be elected, Pande will be nominated for the Department of Classical and Chamber music presentations. You will have an unlimited budget.

    Dr. B
