And I just wrote this to preview the "Top Gun" political training session the Georgia Young Republicans are bringing to Macon. Now, these guys deserve anything we can dish out for naming a campaign training session after a top-flight (pun intended) school for fighter pilots.
But do the jokes work? And I mean work in a "those are terrible, please stop" kind of way. I don't want to end up looking dumb myself:
The list is long, but distinguished
If you feel the need, the need for an entire Saturday's worth of in-depth political training and campaign strategery, consider "Top Gun Training for Candidates, Campaign Managers, and Activists."
This Georgia Federation of Young Republican Clubs event will teach you to push the envelope, and the group is bringing its target rich environment to Macon for the first time. Register online at http://www.georgiayr.com/Event_Registration.html.
Pay your $40 and get ready to fly into the danger zone of this training session May 3 at Macon Wesleyan Church. It will take your breath away from 9 a.m. til 6 p.m.
And, in case some of your are wondering who the best are, they're listed on the invitation: U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, Joe Wilkinson, a state legislator and former press officer to Ronald Reagan, Randy Evans, partner of political powerhouse firm McKenna, Long & Aldridge, even Macon's own City Councilman and ubiquitous blogger Erick Erickson, to name just a few.
No word, yet, on which of them have, or have not, lost that loving feeling.
Bonus points for anyone who can work "No, no, there's two O's in Goose, boys," "Negative, Ghostrider, the pattern is full" or "if you screw up just this much, you'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong!" into the piece.
