Deborah Gyapong, Parliament Hill journalist, reports:
There was the time I was printing off The Tyranny of Nice in the Press Gallery’s Hot Room in Centre Block and a [fellow journalist] was drawn to the cover picture.
He thought it was a great cover, really catchy.
But when he found out what it was about, he smiled dismissively, and went back to his cubicle.
I’m SO gonna try to get that on the back cover in the next edition!
PS: my co-author Pete Vere will be very jealous when he finds out that I’m the second hour guest on a Tennessee radio show this Saturday night, and guest #3 will be… Ted Nugent!
UPDATE: Pete says, “Yep, I’m jealous”, sends picture from when they met:
And of course, no meeting of Michigan Republicans could be complete without SooToday.com editorialist Pete Vere, shown getting an autograph from the Motor City Madman who told the National Rifle Association’s 2005 national convention: “I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want ’em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot ’em.”
