Another Republican Message. Or Not.

I attended the Sacramento County Republican Party Crab Feed this evening. The event was fun and very well attended.

There were plenty of sincere Republicans present, candidates, party regulars, young and old.

Congressman Dan Lungren spoke… for too long… and it went on… and on… a total stump speech. People kept talking because the information has been heard before. A Lungren operative went from table to table insisting that everyone cease their discussions and listen, but there was not anything new or pertinent or even relevant in what Congressman Lungren was saying. And then he promptly left the party.

Assembly member Ted Gaines attended. He sat at tables and chatted with folks he knew… like a guy attending a party. Crazy. What a concept.

I talked to two young Senate fellow, media personalities, friends, Facebook friends I’ve never met face-to-face, old friends and new acquaintances.

Opportunities to speak are plentiful for politicians, but making the most of a situation with sincerity and relevance never falls short on the folks in attendance, regardless of the event.

The disturbing evidence of living in a bubble in congress, in Washington D.C. is evident in both parties, even if you are ideologically in sync… or not.

Red Rover, red rover… here in the district… remember us?

    I tried to keep my comments short…it was a great party. Congrats to Sac GOP for the great turnout (Duane, Sue!). And if your a GOP member in the area, its time to come out of hidding and engage – things are brewing. And speaking of such, the dark brew was great Sunday night. Probably more of a reason as to my brevity. lol

    It was a great event on Sunday. I hope SCRP plans to make this an annual event! For those Republicans in Sacramento who didn’t go, you really missed out – and the crab was delicious! I agree with you Katy,Lungren’s speech was way too long. Especially for those of us who are political junkies – he said nothing we already didn’t know. I was hoping for a Q & A and less stumping. But I have to say it was very inconsiderate of those who kept talking because there were some in the audience who wanted to hear what the congressman had to say.
