This Week’s Surprise(s)

Well, the real surprise for me is not in this list (okay, some of these were surprises, but not all). The big one for me is finding out that despite thinking I was only signing up to attend the Iowa State Republican Convention, I evidently got elected to the Iowa District 3 Republican Convention as well.

Good thing my calendar was clear.

I’ll be heading to Grinnell Iowa Saturday with hopes for a shorter session than the Polk County Republican Convention (that ran about 9 hours and a lot longer for the volunteers). I have not finished reviewing the platform, but what I’ve spot checked looks very consistent with what we put together at the County level.

And yes, I’ll still be attending the State Convention as well.

I plan to have some highlights for you on Sunday. Saturday, Bithead from BitsBlog will be guest blogging for us, so welcome him with open arms and enjoy his comments.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Part 3 of the series on Clinton’s plans for the Middle Class will be here yet this week… sorry about the delay, just crazy at work. And more in the overall analysis of the candidate’s positions to come… the team is hard at work!
