The Alabama GOP Presidential Forum – An Evening with Newt, Rick and 2,000 of my closest friends
Thanks again to my understanding husband who I stood up for dinner via text so I could spend the evening with Newt, Rick and close to 2,000 conservatives, tea partiers and GOPer’s, plus a handful of SCUM (so-called unbiased media – H/T funwithknives). One of the perks of working in downtown Birmingham is that I didn’t have to fight for a parking spot to attend | Read More »
My Political Romance with Newt
Not long after the primary season started to get interesting, I wrote a diary about my political relationship with Newt called Second Dates. At the time, I wasn’t sure if there was enough chemistry between us to go on a second date, i.e., for me to actually consider voting for Newt again*. He had, after all, flirted with Nancy, so I had a difficult time | Read More »
Second Dates (On again, off again with Newt).
In the “Jobs” diary here, NightTwister posted a comment about Newt Gingrich’s website which offers “solutions” rather than “issues” as is done at the sites for other candidates. A while back in one of Erick’s Horserace diaries, I described each candidate in terms of a courtship. My take on Newt was, Gingrich is the old boyfriend you’re still fond of, but there’s just no chemistry | Read More »
FEMA TO THE RESCUE IN ALABAMA. NOT!
Back in April, schools in the small town of Hackleburg, Alabama (population about 1,400), as well as those in neighboring counties, were destroyed by massive, deadly tornadoes. While the schools are being rebuilt, students are in portable classrooms, leaving county officials and parents worried about their safety if, and most likely when, another tornado hits. Not to worry, FEMA to the rescue. As John Roberts | Read More »
Day Two pm & Day Three (Filled with Hope and Coming Full Circle)
Where to start as I wrap up my account of my “first” redstate gathering? Right where I left off in Day Two am. As I stood in line with the new friends, all of us fanning ourselves in the heat (Charleston in August! Really?), I could feel the excitement in the air, and it was easy to get caught up in it all. Press and | Read More »
A Weekend of Firsts, Day Two (Breakfast, Lunch & Gov. Nikki Haley)
Promoted by Jeff. Okay, I have to admit I’ve been a little full of myself today what with the promotion of my first redstate diary, A Weekend of Firsts, Day One, to the front page. A very unexpected first, but very much appreciated (thank you, Jeff and to everyone else for all the kind comments). But I’ve come back down to earth, and we’re off | Read More »
A Weekend of Firsts, Day One (New Friends & New Beginnings)
Promoted from the diaries by Jeff. It’s people and experiences like this that make RedState what it is. First, I’m not a writer by nature, and if I inherited any creative genes, I can’t find them (I even have trouble drawing a stick man). Also, this is my first time using word press and writing a diary off the top of my head, so it | Read More »
