I did a fun interview with Glen Asbury (@glenasbury) as part of his weekly “Twitter Personality of the Week.” The questions were great! Excerpt:
6. You must have, by this point, many fascinating stories to share about your interactions with various political celebrities. Can you share 2 or 3 of your top anecdotes?
Wow, this is a hard question! I have a friend who calls me the Forrest Gump of the conservative movement, so there are a few to choose from. The first thing that comes to mind is when I was traveling with Ann Coulter to Tallahassee, my hometown. I was really excited about the trip. She was coming from New York and I was coming from D.C. I took the metro with my mom, who was on the way to her job at the Pentagon. I made my flight, but Coulter and I never made it to Tallahassee that day. My flight was grounded in Columbia, SC. The flight attendant said there was a “national emergency.” It was the morning of September 11, 2001. Within a few minutes, I was able to get in touch with my mom, who was still at the Pentagon. Coulter was on her way to the airport when it happened and was stuck in Queens. I don’t want to be one of those people who make a national tragedy about them, but it was just one of those moments when the real world and my Forrest Gump life collided.
Finally meeting Rush in person was so unbelievable that I barely remember it. I know we spent about 20 minutes in the green room, but I don’t remember much about it. We took photos. He asked what had been the biggest news to come out of the conference. I have no idea what I said. As it turned out, it hadn’t happened yet. The most auspicious moment of CPAC 2009 was definitely Rush’s first “National Address to the Nation.” It was probably the most significant moment leading up to the 2010 elections. When Rush spoke, it was one month after Obama’s inauguration. Conservatives were on the ropes, but Rush gave a message of hope. The fight for freedom wasn’t lost; it was just beginning.
