California Republican Party Convention Watch: Random Notes

The Press Room at the CRP Convention rocks….. well stocked with friendly staff and FOOD!…… thanks to Sarah and Karen…. no Flap won’t blow your cover but will print your full names tomorrow……

____________________ here and __________________________here……..

Only a few MSM journalist types showed up today…… big crunch will be tomorrow when Arnold makes his speech……

Speaking of the Governor……. speech is a big deal……security is tight and demonstrations Flap predicts will happen………………no entrance for the demonstrators into the hotel unless security breaks down …..which it won’t.

MSM journalists and you know who you are……from Sacramento Bee and Contra Costa Times were actually friendly to the bloggers…..meaning Flap and SactoDan. It seems their newspapers want them to blog too…….plenty of room here for all.

Senator Allen looks and sounds like a winner……smooth speaker and did NOT speak too long. He reminds Flap of Jack Kemp but more polished and not as academic in speech presentation……… and no NFL comparisons allowed here. Allen is the son of a coach……..President probably not this time around but maybe VP……but who knows with Cheney having health problems again…..he may be VP before 2009?????……..

Internet connection in the hotel sucks in the main banquet room…….

Blogger and Blogspot sucks big time …….ask SactoDan why?

Peanut butter cookies in the Press Room are outstanding…..diet busting…….

Capitol Weekly is first pulp paper Flap has picked up in 2 years……. Check it out……Met Anthony York the editor….. funny guy…..with lots of stories…..is he Big Daddy????? Link is under newspapers on the blog…….

Wish I had business cards with my blog name on them……make a note…….

Flap says good night…….until tomorrow at CRP………too early at 8 AM…….

  1. funny story about the Anaheim Marriott ballroom…. Totally OT, however, too good to resist retelling. I was about 4 years old, and we stayed there when we went to Disneyland. It was a great trip. In the same weekend I had already ridden in the elevator with Orville Redenbacher and his grandson, and been tossed around the pool by the New England Patriots (in town to play the Rams….that should tell you how long ago this was 😉 )… So anyway, we were returning from D-land around 5 pm and, Pat Boone was the featured entertainer at some dinner that the conference was having, and he was late. As we walked down the hall past the ballroom, his handlers literally shoved him inside, and that’s how I got run over by Pat Boone. He kinda looked back, but the person with the earpiece who was clearly in charge just about flung him into the room. My mom was LIVID. I thought it was kinda funny, especially as I had no clue who ANY of these famous people were except of course the football team….

    Of course, now we laugh about it whenever we see Pat Boone on TV….

  2. “Blogger and Blogspot sucks big time …….ask SactoDan why?”

    I don’t speak for Dan, but I know him. The most obvious reason is IT’S FREE!!

    I think that Dan and I both do not really like Blogspot, but we’re sticking with it – at least until we can make some money from blogging – because it’s free.
