The debate taking place on Morning Joe right now…

…between Marc Thiessen & Daniel Freedman is an example of some of the best stuff on this type of show. Not only was it a good debate but the bell made it fun. (It wasn’t a cowbell but what can you do?)

I’d like to see this as a regular feature of the show, maybe once a week.

But if you do remember Cowbell:

…in keeping with my assertion that it was the average person was the most important people at CPAC instead of sitting still I wandered the hotel taking shots of the people watching the speech outside of the main hall.

If you want a stationary perspective, Barbara provides one here.

A quick FYI post

People who have known me for years might be aware that one of my abiding faults is being slow on my e-mail, so to all the people who have e-mailed etc, I’m going to ask some indulgence since I have a WHOLE lot more to deal with than usual.

Today I have the cable guy coming to take care of the connection issue upstairs, some stuff for the Planned Parenthood fight to do, a K of C ceremony where my oldest will be joining.

I’m still got some straightening up to do around here and I ended up a little sick once I got home.

I have a lot of CPAC stuff still to go, interviews, photos and some writing that I plan on doing on what I saw and heard.

And of course there are the bills (we are on year 6 of my turn on the 16 year bill cycle) that I have to make sure get taken care of not to mention my search for that elusive $800 a week job, my drop dead date is getting closer.

So there is a lot to do and not really enough of me to do it, but we’ll manage.
