Come See Me Run My Damn Mouth!
Got lunch plans on Tuesday? If not, why not swing by Loca Luna in Little Rock around, oh, let’s say, noon, where I’ll be speaking to the Central Arkansas Young Republicans. (Their planned speaker dropped out, and the guy they invited to take his place couldn’t make it, and then they asked some woman but she had another engagement, and then they asked these two other people but they were both going out of town, and then I was their FIRST CHOICE after all those guys!). We’ll talk about state and local politics, new media and the intersection thereof. It’ll be neat!
So tell your boss you’ll be heading out for lunch on Tuesday, because you do not want to miss this super special engagement. And if he gives you any static, then just tell him you quit. You didn’t need that stupid job anyway.

A pre-scheduled lunch held on the same day every month,with a guest speaker, and multiple e-mail reminders thu the month? That is one hell of a great idea!
I’ll see if your mother will drive me up there so I can listen. She’s very proud of you.
I still have not heard – Will you announce your candidacy for U.S. Senate at the lunch or just talk about how everyone is encouraging you to run but have still not made up your mind?
Tolbert, I’m planning on going to this to ask lots of questions. Bring your Flip Cam.
Come on by Blake. I would love to talk to you.
I hope to get to talk to Mr. Rutherford myself. Come on down Blake. We’ll see how fast you can really think.
Yeah, Blake, you scoundrel. Come on down and I’ll give you a piece of my mind about that goddamn Twitter crap you’re always promoting!
Oh, dear. Wrongly Implicated: Why on earth would you bring that up again? Do you really want to remind people(especially potential voters in the upcoming YR elections) of all the bad press you guys received?
Gee, the YR guys are threatening Blake Rutherford? Seriously? Wow, I bet Blake is getting a laugh out of this. What, are you guys going to meet him down by the creek after school?
You know, Blake made his points and printed his story with his real name attached. If you’re going to call him out, have the balls to use your real name.
Well stated, Rex. To which I’ll add: Whining about a two-year old blog post is pretty weak.
Yes I brought this up again. It still pisses me off, and yea I am starting to regret it.

Yea we should all have the balls to use our own names huh? What is your real name again?
O.K it may be 2 years old but it still makes me mad.
Man, I am sorry I will have to miss this one. This is shaping up to be the most exciting CAYR lunch in history!
The difference is that I’m not calling someone out. There are ligitimate reasons to use a cover on a blog. Ideas are supposed to rule, so names don’t matter. The substance behind them is the supposed important thing.
But calling someone out? Making an ad hominem? Well, there are just rules of southern honor that I thought most of us guys lived by. If you attack a man’s honor and integrity, you should give him the benefit of knowing who is calling him out…and having the balls to put your real name out there so Mr. Rutherford knows whom it is that wishes to discuss the “B.S.” he posted when he sees you coming.
If you can’t see the difference, I’m afraid I can’t explain it to you. I would imagine you do.
I do know the difference. If and when I need to address this with Rutherford I will.
