Nat on the campaign trail


Well, the new photoshop contest is going to have to wait till tomorrow morning. You can thank Kris and his Battlefield addiction.

Anyway, I’ve still got some goodies for you.

A whole bunch of new old Nat pics have been added. Thanks once again to the lovely Melody.

We finally have some decent pics for this photoshoot.

And here are a few choice pics added to various other galleries.

All the other women hate her.
Shall we dance?
Gotta believe it here we go.
I think Charlie has a drug problem.
Definitely a problem.

A big thanks to Stacy and Kennan for the following article.

Both presidential candidates have relatives, celebrities and other notable folks campaigning for them.

But John Kerry has a leg up on George Bush, at least for “Star Wars” fans. Kerry has Queen Amidala.

Natalie Portman, the 23-year-old actress who plays Luke Skywalker’s mom in the “Star Wars” movies, visited a Milwaukee night spot Sunday evening to encourage young people to vote.

“Not many people in the world have the power to vote, so take advantage of it,” she told a crowd of more than 200, mostly college students, at Kenadee’s, 725 N. Milwaukee St.

Wearing a brown John Kerry T-shirt and standing in front of signs that said “It’s up to the women. Vote! Kerry/Edwards,” Portman spoke for about five minutes and then posed for photos.

“This is a really big deal for us young people,” Portman said. “We’re the ones who will be affected by Bush’s terrible environmental policies.”

She also criticized the president on health care, the economy and the war in Iraq.

Portman, who said this was her first visit to Wisconsin, is traveling to cities and college campuses to stump for Kerry and promote a program called Take Five that encourages women to bring five new voters with them to the polls. She’ll appear at 10 a.m. today at Chadbourne Hall on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

Young people who are eligible to vote for the first time are more likely respond to someone like Portman, said Justin Hamilton, Milwaukee regional press secretary for Kerry.

“A lot of people in this age group – it’s your ‘Daily Show’ crowd – they’re not as much into the national ads as they are into learning from others in their peer group,” Hamilton said.

After she finished speaking, someone from the crowd asked her about the plot of the next “Star Wars” film, “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith,” which is due out in May 2005. She smiled sheepishly and said, “This is about Kerry.” That prompted someone else to yell, “John Kerry is a ‘Star Wars’ fan.”


Thats it for now. Check back tomorrow for the photoshop contest, a new poll and some fanart.
