Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006


Blogger's Ball

Somehow the Mrs. and I got past the bouncer last evening and managed to mingle amongst the local blogging glitterati at Keegan's Irish Pub.

Tomorrow I hope to post (with the help of Noodles) my first blog photo -- James Lileks signing our copies of both his magnificent tomes.

Got a few moments of face time with Mitch and ingratiated myself with some boxty. Met Cathy, Kathy (never leave your wingman), Mrs. Bogus (Mama Ellen), Rex, 'Belief' Doug, and Mrs. Policy Guy for the first time. Of course, all the regulars were there including trivia teammates Noodles and First Ringer. Strom was avoiding our table so he could avoid being served with the pending defamation lawsuit for calling us "LOSERS" -- when, in fact, we tied his team for 2nd place on Thursday night. You can run but you can't hide, David.

Thanks to Saint Paul for the name of Mrs. Miller's soon-to-be-appearing Twin Cities real estate blog (per page 131 of Hugh's latest book)

Never got anywhere near The Trunk despite wearing my brand new Powerline sweatshirt. Janacek wouldn't let him mingle with the rabble.

I understand the lovely and talented State Sen. Michele Bachman (and heir apparent in CD-6?) arrived after the Miller's departure. This proved to be the evening's only regret. But if she had the good sense to show up at a gathering of bloggers, her future is bright indeed.
