Two delightful items, both by way of Gaper’s Block:
First, Alan Keyes sings. “Somewhere over the Rainbow.” In front of other people. On TV, actually. Channel 2, the CBS channel that I always used to call WBBM.
Second, a funny account of a campaign encounter with John Edwards and Barack Obama in Chicago:
“… Continuing in my stilted voice, I greeted Mr. Obama with a cheery, “I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE RUNNING. I HAVE BEEN VOLUNTEERING FOR YOU.” He thanked me, and honestly, I know this sounds naive and cheesy, but it felt genuine. I love that guy.”
