A Rove Landing

Political guru and Bush's Brain, Karl Rove descended on the Luzerne County GOP tonight at the main ballroom in Genetti's in Wilkes-Barre. An overflow crowd of just under 600 attended the $35.00 a plate dinner. Buzz and I attended the event, and we hate to disappoint our devout liberal and left wing readers, but we found the former Deputy Chief of Staff to George W. Bush very congenial, funny, and actually, very approachable.

The GOP faithful, which included GOP candidates from all across Pennsylvania, enjoyed the hour long speech from the man also dubbed "the Architect." Rove received a standing ovation at the beginning and end of his speech, and was interrupted numerous times during his remarks. Buzz snapped a couple of photos of me with Rove, and Rove was kind enough to sign my program. (Picture tomorrow.)

We intended to do a complete story on the Rove speech and the GOP Spring Dinner tonight, but Buzz had some problems with the Microbus on the way home, so we'll put that off until tomorrow.

Stay tuned for our take on the Rove speech, and our take on the unusually long and perplexing speech of GOP endorsed candidate for Supreme Court Judge Joan Orie Melvin.

You're going soft on us Norton. Were they serving kool-aid at that event? Karl Rove is a ruthless, unethical dirt bag!!!!!!!
