Smitty comments on Liz Cheney:

The fact that the Justice Department has logged more hours investigating the CIA than the CIA has logged interrogating the foe is quite damning.
She’s also touting her site, Keep America Safe. The administration’s attention is drawn to somebody with a clue.

I do have a shot or two of her.

As Smitty notes the Vice President showed up I have two short clips of him.

From his mouth to God’s ears…

I do apologize for the poor quality of those two videos.

At there is a very good interview with Jane Van Ryan from Energy Tomorrow and the American Petroleum institute.

I would have interviewed her myself but I was too busy eating the M&M’s she was giving out!

I think Eric at the fun house did a good job, I look forward to seeing more from him.

When I listened to Marco Rubio’s love letter to America and his parents of a speech all I could think of was Annie DiMartino, back during the Brown campaign she said this:

(the snow would fit in very good here in Washington today). If you listen to Marco Rubio’s speech and compare the two you will notice something amazing.

His speech is one that Annie could have made, it is a speech that my parents could have made, and it struck me that if they were Marco’s age instead of in their 70’s they would be conservatives today! In fact some have already abandoned the democratic ship that has abandoned them.

Update: take a look at this excerpt via Hotline:

“I was not born to a wealthy or connected family. And yet, I have never felt or been limited by the circumstances of my birth. I have never once felt like there was something that was not possible for me because of who my parents were, or where they came from. But why is it that I have been able to accomplish many of my dreams, but my grandfather’s dreams never had a chance? The answer is simple. Because I am privileged. The simple privilege of being a citizen of the greatest society in all of human history. There has never been a nation like the United States.”

Pure Annie.

Updated: Added Rubio’s speech

The ultimate irony, Smitty had credentials, Barbara had credentials, mine were found after a bit but Stacy’s could not be found. That proves 2 things…

#1 Carry Cannoli,

and you will get credentials

#2 Wear your fedora.

NEVER forget the Fedora!

Smitty, Barbara and myself all turned up at the table in the Fedoras. We got in. Stacy left his in the room, he was kept out. When he went back and got the fedora, THEN he got in!

Oh listening to Rubio’s speech, it’s VERY good. Rounds of applause from the Bloggers area led by Robert Stacy in Fedora.
