…odd mood this year. Not as snarling as some, but the new location coupled with the ongoing controversies and mixed with the lack of a looming election cycle made it somewhat low-key for me. Also: I found it surprisingly jarring to not have five billion Ron Paul supporters trying to get me to vote in that freaking straw poll.
Ach, well. I ran into a goodly number of colleagues and peers, who mostly had flattering things to say about both RedState and myself. That’s always nice to hear.
