Thinking Left about the GADCC dinner
Today's blogger
Sorry for the repeat folks, I blew it last night.

  • I thought Mark Taylor did a pretty decent job of sounding conciliatory, tense snickers notwithstanding. I think we can win this sucker.


  • I was extremely surprised not to see Guy Drexinger in attendance – I can only hope he was busy campaigning somewhere else.


  • I want to see more of Robert Brown. He had the best rhetoric of the night, and even DuBose Porter had a tough time following him.


  • It was gratifying to see Shyam Reddy and some of the other players from the Secretary of State race. I'm looking forward to seeing him on the ballot again soon.


  • It was equally gratifying to not see ahem certain other losing candidates, although Cathy would have been a welcome sight.


  • I want to go on record as saying that Mike Berlon sounds like a very good idea for DPG chair, despite criticism coming from certain quarters. I think he can be a leader – without leadership those other things like money and vision don't really matter.


  • I was extremely impressed by how certain, um, young-at-heart Democrats managed to go toe-to-toe with us Young Democrats at the after party and the after-after party. Talk about aging gracefully!


  • Speaking of the after party, I dispute the idea that we found the Manuel's in Macon – there was no draft Guinness, forcing me to drink the very dangerous martini instead. Also, there were no boiled peanuts...


  • Three cheers for Angelia Knight, who also got the “Aww!” award by speaking very lovingly of Tasso.


  • If anyone saw the Mark Warner people, please let me know – I thought they were planning on attending, but all I saw was some (welcome) literature. I think Mark is going to do well here.


(On an unrelated note, please check out our Summertime Blue event announcement, which I have unfortunately bumped with this post.)
