Let's face it, bloggers have it pretty easy.
We're like the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the political world, sitting in our PJ's waiting for news to be broken by highly-paid reporters so we can recap it, drinking cheap wine by the bottle and tearing apart painful YouTube moments of our favorite politicians without ever having to leave our couches.
Of course, that is completely a stereotype but, admittedly, not that far off from my regular Thursday night.
So I'm a bit apprehensive about an upcoming event that is being put on by Annie's List, an organization most of you are probably already familiar with. In a nutshell, they raise money and provide campaign infrastructure for female, progressive candidates across Texas, and do a damn good job at it.
Annie's List Deputy Political Director Genevieve Van Cleve, along with Democratic political consultant Harold Cook and State Representative Mark Strama will be roasting me next Thursday, September 16th at Max's Wine Dive in Austin. The event will be emceed by the lovely and amazing State Senator Leticia Van de Putte and will also have some cameo "mini-roast" appearances by others as well (those are the ones I'm really worried about).
I invite you all to join me in supporting this great cause and, more importantly, helping fund an event that publicly embarrasses me. Because, if it's true what they say that "what goes around comes around," I'd pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.
Interested in coming to the event or being a sponsor (you don't have to live in Texas to be a sponsor)? You can buy tickets and sponsorships online here.
A HUGE thank you to all of you who have shown your support by being on the host committee and sponsoring his event. It means a ton. I will name my first children after all of you.
