Well I’m back from what has come to be known as “The Super Secret Hefty Lefty” Conference in the Azores and I have to say that this year Soros outdid himself.
Getting marching orders from George at this annual pep rally had become a somewhat dreary experience over the years but this year everybody was still buzzing from having tricked the country into voting for Obama and George really laid out a nice spread.
In fact, I only went to one session (How to Use Outlandishly Offbeat and Tasteless Headlines to Boost Your Google Page Rank) and spent the rest of my time drinking mojitos on the beach in a hammock in between Paul Krugman and Maureen Dowd (who is is honestly as vapid as she seem but scored a bunch of points for me by her amazing ability to the downtown bar tenders to set up rows and rows of free shots.)
Anyway, I have to get Gorge to include the whole DL crowd next year. Having everyone there will bolster my case to George that DL can not continue to limp along on the measly $2.5 million he pays us each year. Also, watching Michael Moore and Dennis Kucinich compete in a “dizzy bat” race on the beach is more fun than humans should be allowed to have.
