I was invited by Senator Bell’s campaign to attend the Chesterfield Nottobenamed/Reagan Dinner.  It was a nice presentation with a great speech from Jim Kuhn, who worked for my hero from 1976 through the end of his second term (I am surprised I did not mob him like a rock star!) who wrote this book:  Ronald Reagan in Private.

Senator Martin and Delegate Bell won the straw poll.  I met several people – thoroughly enjoyed my brief meeting with Del. Riley Ingram (My wife was an Ingram first!) and also ran into Major the sign king from the Mechanicsville TP.  I met again Bishop E.W. Jackson, who is the front runner for my endorsement and vote but maybe my help is not much for them!  Bishop Jackson is a great campaigner.  I also met the BBQ candidate:  Pete Snyder.  He is very impressive in person.   Genuine charisma – even handsome.  Snyder strongly encouraged me to support him.  Finally I met Susan Stimpson, the chairman of the Stafford Board of Supervisors and the Dinwiddie Commonwealth’s Attorney, Lisa Caruso.

It was a challenge:  Having to look at the Sixteenth President’s picture all over the walls of the ballroom!  Thankfully photographs of Reagan were there too.  There is in interesting article (which I agree with) urging the Dems to dump Andrew Jackson as an icon.  They said this:

With Republicans also raising money with Lincoln-Reagan dinners this spring, Democrats have to take a harder look at what the past means for their future. If so, they’ll find it’s not hard to do better. Roosevelt-Kennedy has a nice ring to it.

If I had my way, the GOP should dump that one who is not to be named.  My readers know why.  But my thanks to the Chesterfield Republican Committee for their hospitality to the blogger from Hanover.

  1. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old
    one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
