Matt and I just walked around the exhibition hall and ran into a person who looked like an overweight and short Michael Barone. He is Barone’s doppleganger, right down to the signature glasses. The only reason we knew for sure it wasn’t Barone is that we saw him last year.
Everybody is talking about Dick Cheney, Scott Brown, & Mitt Romney. Friday & Saturday have a lot of work to do to match today’s performance.
I’m beginning to understand why so many writers tend to be overweight. There are all kinds of complementary drinks and snacks for media-types and they mostly consist of soda, chips, & cookies. The only thing that save me is that I have a year’s worth of student living (& eating) between events.
From a purely political calculation perspective: Linking with MA Senate winner Scott Brown is a good way to put Romeny squarely on the side of the Tea Party movement–no mean feat when you are the former governor of a liberal state.
