Albert Maruggi, my well-connected Republican Twitter friend who lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, has great insights into the convention going on in his hometown this week. Albert was a key GOP staffer when Dan Quayle was chosen as Bush I’s VP, so his memories are good preparation for tonight’s big speech by Gov. Sarah Palin. In this telephone interview today, he also tells why watching Palin is a NASCAR experience.
The music for my podcast is “Going to the Sun,” composed and performed by Montana musicians Christine Dickinson, Janet Haarvig and Matthew Lyon. It’s from their excellent Glacier Journey CD.
