Stare at this photo for twenty seconds.


Now imagine waiting in line for two hours to watch this for twenty seconds. That was my yesterday.

The book, "Palestine: Peace, not Apartheid" looks really good. I look forward to reading it. Security was very tight at the booksigning. Given the topic and "don't sugarcoat it" message of this book, that should surprise no one.

In spite of the rush, Mister Blue Gal did get in a word to Mister Carter:

Mr. BG: "Thank you for your book, and more importantly, the message contained in it."

Mr. Carter: "Yes, well I think it's long overdue."

I was grateful to Mister Blue Gal for what he did NOT say: "Hey, meet the wife, the liberal blogger Blue Gal. The two-hour wait to watch you write your name sure is revenge for her making phone calls for Ted Kennedy back in 1980. Kudos! Wow, did you get a load of those Britney Spear's love flap photos? I'd like to show her a piece of apartheid, heh heh."

Mister Blue Gal would never. In fact, I doubt he knows who Britney is, more power to him.


  1. Kudos on the Kennedy thing. We could have won in 1980 if you had been successful.

    "Kudos on the Kennedy thing. We could have won in 1980 if you had been successful."

    Joking of course.

    And Blue what were they thinking letting you make campaign phone calls when you were only three?

  3. I looked for you; sorry we missed each other. I was glad to see such a big crowd, even if it did mean a l-o-n-g wait. Funny, I thought security was pretty relaxed -- no metal detectors, no purse searches, no patdowns. And the two protesters were allowed to stand where we could see them instead of being stuck in a free speech zone.

    Yeah, it was just a walk-by signing, but it was cool to be in the same room with the man.

  4. Oh, BG, I had visions that you would trade an autographed pair of your famous panties to the Pres for his book, and then he might accidentally pull them out of his pocket later as Senator Heflin once did with a pair of his wife’s panties when he reached for his handkerchief.

    In another world and another lifetime, my hubby interviewed Pres. Carter (who was at that time only Candidate Carter).

    He's done so much good - in the Style of a True American President!

    What, no panties???

    Hope Carter's book better than Obama's new book. I'm on the second chapter and it is not so hot, and not so inspiring or anything, really. Maybe it'll get better.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
