SoCal Blogger Event

I may not be a lawyer, but this sure sounds interesting. Plus, Hugh Hewitt's moderating, so it's guaranteed to be a good time. I plan to attend and see how the other half (or actual, intellectual bloggers) lives.

One of the wonderful benefits of living in the LA area--opportunities to meet and attend events hosted by my favorite pundits, talk show hosts, politicians and authors.

Just thought I'd let the SoCal bloggers know about this, if they didn't already (which they probably did). I don't know about the live blogging bit though. I think I'll stick with my M.O. and write about it hours after the Playful Primates do.

Hugh needs to stop talking trash on George B. McClellan.

perhaps you should say something about those simians being part of the TTLB Ecosystem, and you're not just calling other bloggers a bunch of apes.

that would be something I would do.

You should tell him that, unless your version of "stickin it to the man" is to boycott all Hewitt events. Or you could stage a Pro-McClellan sit in.

And Mac,

My sincerest apologies. My use of self-deprecating humor has clearly been misunderstood. I'd never call you an ape...that's far to simplistic a jab.

I have indeed told him Portia, and offered what I view as an excellent rebuttal:

And he still continues on his anti-McClellan tirade?

Well, at least an historical figure bearing your surname is newsworthy and still relevant, according to Hewitt. They say all publicity is good publicity.

I say, go with plan B and stage the sit in, but you have to wear the period piece uniform in order to be fully effective in your message.
