Tiahrt, babies, country tunes, sugar cookies and a bit of Obama bashing

As a colleague of mine noted, “Lotta babies here.”

And canned country music. And sugar cookies. And no alcohol.

This perhaps explains why there is more spirited chatter coming from the bar at the front of the Airport Hilton than inside the vast official party space for Todd Tiahrt.

Tiahrt himself is here, though, along with lots of other politicians, like Sue Schlapp, Phil Journey, Dave Unruh and Karl Peterjohn.

Oh, and from the nonpolitical world, Dame Helen Galloway.

Still, I’m wondering if I should go investigate who is watching returns in the bar. You know, research.

Oh, and now the Obama jokes are starting. So long.
