Subject: Yearly Kos-07 report
Sorry it has take so long to get this Yearly
Kos report to you. At our age,
it takes time to recover from these long weekends
of fun, food, drinking and politics.
So, to begin - cue up the song "it's a small
world after all."
Friday night, devtob and LuLu were hanging out
in the Hyatt bar along with scores of other lefties
when a guy named Doug sat down and began talking
to us. We had quite a long, animated
conversation when for some reason, LuLu referred
to the "BFEE."
"You read Bartcop!" our new friend exclaimed
Indeed, we affirmed; then started talking about
your great site. LuLu told him she had intended
to bring a BC sticker to YKos to take pictures
with the big wigs, but forgot to pack it.
He gave LuLu the card of Jim from Chicago and
told us Jim could hook us up with stickers.
The next day (debate day), we wore our WPE shirts.
As LuLu came out of one of the meeting rooms,
a guy yells out to her, "Bartcopper!" Yup, it
was Chicago Jim. He hooked her up with some stickers.
So here are a few photos of LuLu and devtob with
our WPE shirts on,
devtob in his WPE shirt with Markos,
LuLu with a BC sticker and the presidential
candidates in the back,
LuLu in a WPE shirt with Ned Lamont,
and LuLu with Teamsters Union president Jim Hoffa.
Hoffa really liked the shirt, by the way. Bet
he would love it if you sent him one.
Oh, yeah, it was a great conference. Great speakers,
wonderful workshops and lots of good times
- including a serendipitous random hook-up with
a Kossack who gave us a ride on his sailboat.
Next year, you should go and do a panel discussion.
They are looking for speakers.
You can tell people how to do a royal rant and
a half, and the proper way to swing the hammer.
Are you sure they want "my kind" at Yearly Kos?
Kos told Tim the Whore
yesterday that our front runner was at NINE
percent on his straw poll.
I'm more of a realist
than that - I doubt I'd fit in.
BTW, we drank the Hyatt bar out of every decent
draft beer by Saturday night; Here's
LuLu and devtob
LuLu, you did a great job on that Trip Report!
