A Party For the People

Just now getting over a very eventful night last night. Even now, I still feel a twinge of jealousy for Mitt Romney as he seems to have landed a one in a million type of gal in that Ann. Looks and brains. If there was really a War on Women, which  there isn’t*, I would have surrendered last night, perhaps even gone in for a little enhanced interrogation coupled with some humiliating photos of me being mocked by my captors, if Ann Romney was every woman out there. Which she isn’t. She’s special. Like I said. Looks and brains. One in a billion probably.

And then there were the other speakers of the night including Rick Santorum who maybe left some of the audience with a wistful sense of the ‘what could have been’s and Chris Christie who maybe left the audience  with a gleeful sense of ‘what will be but he needs to lose about 100 pounds or so or he won’t be for much longer’s. And then there was John Boehner grew maudlin as he waxed nostalgic about how he and his friends would throw people like Barack Obama out of his family bar. Plus, a couple of women spoke. Including a young black woman who is a true conservative. Who said we can’t get the urban Salt Lake City suburban vote?

But I came to Tampa to mingle the very heart blood of the conservative movement of the 21st Century, who have taken an unjustified beating of late from the Obama Regime for just not being the type of people they find worthy of their respect. Let it be said that is not how the Republican party rolls. We are big tent for everyone who the Democratic Party has chosen to ignore, from the smart urban Salt Lake City Suburban mothers to the the Corporations that have given so much to make this country great. Yes, that’s right, Corporations are people, too. They’re here. They’re legal entities who are distinct and separate from their owners. Get Used to it.

So I spent last night hanging out with Harris and Ford, or at least the people hired by Ford to walk around the Ford Motors courtesy suite wearing rum bottle holsters and shot glass bandoliers. Harris, an international communications technology corporation, meanwhile was mingling with the other people of the GOP, walking the convention floor firing t-shirt cannons at the delegates with only a dozen or so delegates suffering any serious head and neck injuries. The T-Shirts, with  strategically placed radio knobs on front with the Harris lightning bolt logo and “Come in Tokyo” on the back, were quite popular with the crowd; I saw John Sununu giggling like a  school girl who had not aged well as he scampered from group to group asking if anyone wanted to see if they could get Japan on his radio.

Good people. Fun people. Is this a great party or what?

And just remember. You’re welcome.

*Well, There is one War On Women. The one the Democrats are waging with their equal pay fiasco which makes it harder for women to turn down work when they really should want to be with their children and the welfare to work waivers which make it easier for poor mothers to become poor role models for their children as they sit around the house rather than going to work where they should be.

About Jeffrey Frey

Jeffrey Frey (pronounced Jeff FREE FREE) likes to say he was born twice as free. But unlike others who may take for granted that glorious birthright, he shares that freedom with you the reader, who most likely will again take his insights for granted. This doesn’t bother Jeff since freedom, unlike marriage, should be available to everyone.
