Tomorrow is the big day for politicians statewide, Republicans and Democrats, as sign wars break out on the miles of roadway leading to the gathering area and volunteers head out early in the day to get a jump on the competition.
Bloggers will be out in full force as well as politicans who will be pressing the flesh while supporters and sideline watchers hit the beer wagons and wait for that shad to be planked. The piney woods of Wakefield will be the happening place for one brief day with political speeches and back-home music. Wear your comfortable shoes because you will spend the majority of the day on your feet.
The shad planking is not about the shad ... and it's not even about the beer. It's about networking ... the back-slapping, elbow-rubbing, eye-winking opportunities to pull in new supporters, line up deals, and continue the politicking that will be the topic of the day.
