Well, That Was Fun…


Well, that was actually fun. Am back at my hotel — awaiting my breakfast from room service. Amazing how hungry being up early and talking politics on television can make you. I’m STARVING. And in need of much more coffee before my drive home.

But I wanted to stop in and say thanks to everyone for watching this morning. You guys are the best, do you know that?

The C-Span Washington Journal set has the most amazing view of the Capitol. It was the perfect backdrop for political discourse this morning. A big thank you to Eloise and Lisa at C-Span for taking such good care of me. Peter, the host, has a wry sense of humor — would have liked to have spoken more with him (I hear he has a good Cher calling into the show story…).

It turns out that Paul Mirengoff and I have a mutual legal acquaintance — wow, the world is small, eh? And for my very first television interview, I could not have asked for a better conservative counterpart across the desk.

Had dinner with Pach yesterday at a fantastic Vietnamese restaurant somewhere in Virginia. Poor fella, I dragged him around the mall because I left my black cashmere sweater at home (oops!) and had to find something to wear on camera beyond my sleeping t-shirt. We had a great time, though — and some exceptional food and conversation at dinner. Pach is a peach!

Ahhhh…the room service is here and I must have more coffee. Have I mentioned how great you all are for getting up this morning? This was lots of fun, but I miss my morning routine…and blogspot isn’t letting me upload a photo, so I’ll have to put up the lovely robin I had picked out for TeddySanFran when I get home later today.

(Hopefully, our new website software will be more kind and the robin photo will work.)
