Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as ever to Pirate’s Cove, The Daley Gator, The Other McCain, Flappr, Whores and Ale, and Bacon Time for the Rule Five links!

This morning finds me at my in-laws’ house in Denver, back from CPAC 2024; this was, to say the least, an interesting experience. Tomorrow my own dear Mrs. Animal and I will proceed hither back to the Great Land, where I will await the next major event that will drag me kicking and screaming out of Alaska.

One of the greatest things about events like this is the occasional chance to shake hands with someone and say “Hey, I’ve always wanted to meet you!”  During this event, I not only got some face-to-face time with my RedState colleagues, but also with pundit and author Kurt Schlichter, Townhall’s Larry O’Connor, and a bevy of motivated and enthusiastic attendees. I was interviewed by NewsMax’s John Tabacco, and just generally spent a lot of time gassing with people hanging around.

Now, it’s back to work, and in between, spending some time with Mrs. Animal’s parents, who are some of the best people I’ve ever known. We’ll continue regular news and commentary tomorrow.  Excelsior!
