Beer And Shucking In The French Quarter

10 April 2010 @ 19:48

As I mentioned in a posting on Wednesday, Stacy McCain was about to hit the road again to attend the four-day Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans.  Well, he made it and has been doing his shoe leather thang since Thursday.

He filed a brief report upon his arrival and Smitty offered some penetrating, in-depth commentary.

-Yesterday, Stacy filed a report that contains an interview with New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson and some pictures of some hepcats and explains how is able to hang around with such folks:

…People ask me, what’s the secret to getting to hang out at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference with cool people like Gary Johnson? Step One: Get to know Ali Akbar . . .

That young fella certainly gets around.  He’s one of our brightest young stars — keep an eye on him.

Fox News’s Carl Cameron closes his eyes and avoids Newt Gingrich’s Hypnotic Dog Track Time Stare, but his producer is not so lucky and will later be last seen going over the hill with Newt [photo by Stacy McCain].

-Last evening, Smitty posted Sarah Palin’s speech at the Conference and commented:

Sarah’s speech is a point-for-point flogging of the Administration. The folksy delivery will cause lefty heads near you to ’splode, to keep the volume low. President Sleeveheart has already publicly whined about her by name on the nuclear topic….

I like the moniker he’s devised for the Golden Child — good one, Smitty.

-Stacy filed another report last night that contains two clips of Andrew Brietbart in fine form talking to reporters.  In the second one you can hear Stace laughing after Mr. Breitbart says this:

I will sit with [the MSM], any of them, anywhere, anytime.  They can give me mescaline and they can Q&A me all they want.

Sam Adams lives!

-Also last night, Stacy filed a report on Ray McKinney who is running against Rep. John ‘Blue Dog’ Barrow in Georgia’s 12th District.  The man has a very interesting story of how he got involved in politics that might inspire those of you out there who think, because you have no connections, wouldn’t stand a chance.

-In a posting earlier this afternoon, Smitty mentions that Stacy is trying to score an interview with the great Herman Cain and publishes two videos of Mr. Cain that are must-see viewing.  Neither Smitty nor Stacy knew of the man before, but, it seems, Smitty has taken a liking to the man:

A quick Wikipedia glance reveals that the man has a clue, and then some. Here is his web page. A West/Cain ticket in 2012? Far worse things have happened, and recently.

Certainly, Herman Cain should be tapped for a cabinet position if the conservatives take back The Executive in 2012.

-That’s all so far.  I hope to have more tomorrow.

‘By the time we got to the street, I could see the first rays of the sun, a cool pink glow in the eastern sky. The fact that I’d spent all night in a cell and a courtroom made that morning one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. There was a peace and brightness about it, a chilly Caribbean dawn after a night in a filthy jail. I looked out at the ships and the sea beyond them, and I felt crazy to be free with a whole day ahead of me.

Then I realized I would sleep most of the day, and my excitement disappeared.’

    In response to your earlier question, yes I did notice that Stormy Daniels made a striking impression. Speaking of that very topic, do you realize Mr. Belvedere that Robert Stacy McCain has one post on Rule 1, two on Rule 2, two on Rule 4, and forty-two postings on Rule #5? He may give lip service to shameless blog whoring, but it would seem he is a tad more heavily invested elsewhere. That being said, I hope you are prepared to do your duty.

    Thank you, Bob, Thank you.

    I am honored to be listed among the ranks of the Right Ring Extremists, particularly as the left attempts to pass off the president as a center left politician. The favor is returned, and over do I might add, to list you on my ‘Fun Reads’ list. I am sure I have the better part of the bargain.
