The Texas Democratic Party has really screwed the pooch this time.
As most Democratic candidates, officeholders, and activists in Texas already know, Chairman Boyd Richie is planning to step down at the end of his term at this Summer’s state convention. Serving as Chairman (of either political party, no doubt) is a tough job, and in my opinion Chairman Richie has worked hard and played the cards he was dealt masterfully.
Except, not so fast, bucko.
Dumb: Just when Boyd and his lovely wife Betty were this close to a clean get-away, they foolishly agreed to appear at a big event roasting both of them, on April 28th in Austin, benefitting the Democratic Party.
Dumber: I’ll be the Master of Ceremonies.
Dumbest: The Democratic Party agreed that I can say anything…yes anything…I want.
Now generally, I have a rule here on the blog – if Comedy Central won’t air it (without bleeps), I won’t write it. I shamelessly have no such rule for live events. I’m kind of Bob Saget-ish that way.
So yeah, you might want to leave the kids at home, this event, or at least my participation in it, is going to be solidly R-rated. Of course, you know damn well your kids say that kind of stuff every time you’re out of hearing range, but you like to irrationally pretend they’re delicate flowers. But I digress.
This dinner is going to be a lot of fun, so I really hope you’ll consider attending. I intend to ridicule everybody on the stage – except perhaps Betty Richie, because she’s nice, smart, and honestly, she’s pretty hot and I don’t want to ruin my chances with her. But everybody else is way fair game.
Please don’t miss it!
