Politics: DAMMIT! 

How did I miss Laura Ingraham visting Austin?

I realize I spent the early part of last week listening to Jim Rome's show, looking for a Bracketology edge that obviously never came, instead of tuning into Ingraham, but still... how disappointing! She gave a talk at the Renaissance Hotel, which is literally about two football fields down the street from my apartment complex.

The conservative talk radio personality, whose nationally syndicated show airs from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays on KJCE 1370 AM, brought her humor and her personality to an appreciative crowd of nearly 1,000 at the Renaissance Hotel at the Arboretum.

"Is it kind of chilly in here," she asked at the onset, "or did Hillary (Rodham Clinton) just blow into the room?" Later, she referred to the former first lady as Hillary "Rob 'em" Clinton.

Ingraham, a graduate of Dartmouth College, a White House speechwriter under President Reagan, a University of Virginia School of Law graduate and a former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, was interrupted by applause throughout her half-hour speech.
This makes last week's softball loss even worse. I'm bummed that I missed her.
