Guess who is coming to our Troopathon 2010 broadcast July 1st? The original pin-up girl, Jane Russell!
Jennifer Harper at the Washington Times has more.
SHE'S STILL GOT IT
Reassuring news in troubled times. Some great American assets just keep on keepin' on. Classic movie goddess Jane Russell — at age 89 — will be part of the burgeoning cast for Troopathon 2010, an 8-hour live broadcast from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library. The event to raise money for care packages sent to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan was organized by Move America Forward — a grass-roots pro-troop group — and will be hosted by talk radio goddess Melanie Morgan and Big Hollywood founder Andrew Breitbart.
Other guests who will join live or via video feed July 1 include Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Dennis Miller, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Michael Graham, Frank Gaffney — broadcasters all — plus actor Gary Sinise, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton and Newsbusters .com editor Noel Sheppard. The aforementioned care packages include everything from edible goodies to CDs, sun block, grooming items and other cheerful fare. Oh, and this also might be a good week to review some of Miss Russell's grand films, like "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "The Outlaw," among others.
"We've got a lot of great guests joining us — including my great-aunt Jane Russell. She's still going strong and I'm really excited to work with a legend of the silver screen," event spokesman Levi Russell tells Inside the Beltway, and advises readers to consult www.troopathon.org for information.
