The “Minority Outreach Panel” at CPAC is an empty room.
Who is surprised? Raise your hand.
It drives me shitballs crazy when politics comes up and I say I’m a registered Democrat and some asshole responds “Oh, I vote MY conscience.”
Oh, congratulations. And fuck you. I vote my conscience too. My conscience just happens to be aligned with mostly Democratic issues and politicians.
Hey look!! I met the junior senator from Massachusetts - Sen. Ed Markey. He just won John Kerry’s vacation seat.
I didn’t realize how wicked tall he is. I did tell him he’s doing a “helluva job.” He chuckled and said “thanks.” We’re totally, like, best friends now.
Also, please excuse my hair, the hotel had shitty product and I look like I washed with Crisco. But whatever, my new bestie is a senator. So there.
Supposedly Terry McAuliffe wins narrowly in Virginia.

The Democratic nominee for the State Senate 1st Suffolk District is Linda Dorcena Forry, a woman of color. Forry is a long-time state representative and a native of Dorchester.
Long known as the “Southie seat” and once held by Billy Bulger, the district covers neighborhoods across Boston, including Southie, Dorchester, Mattapan and Hyde Park.
Way to go Linda!! Let’s bring it home in June.

"The conservative-leaning Boston Herald was the first to know that Scott wasn’t running. "U are the first to know," he sent in a text message.”
