Another shoe leather day

Once again, I’ll be in D.C. today, the third day in the past week that I’m trying to get face-time with sources in Washington and keep pushing on IG-Gate.

This means light blogging once more, but it can’t be helped. There’s no substitute for shoe leather. There are limitations to what can be done via phone and e-mail.

My itinerary for the day includes a visit to the Reason Happy Hour. Yeah, roll your eyes, but you’d be amazed how important cocktail hour is to the work of a D.C. journalist. A big shindig like the Reason event brings together people from different spheres — journalists, think-tankers, activists, Capitol Hill staffers — so that you can make connections you wouldn’t make otherwise.

Speaking of which, if anybody wants to get together Friday evening, we’re planning an event in D.C. that’s kind of a Smittypalooza. E-mail Smitty, if you’re interested.

Here’s the permalink for the Blog Talk Radio show I did last night with Rick Moran, Dan Riehl and Jimmie Bise.

I’ve loaded up the headlines on the right sidebar with IG-Gate related items, plus Christopher Badeaux’s laugh-out-loud takedown on Dr. Andrew Sullivan, M.D., OB-GYN-ROTFLMAO.

Anyone who feels the urge to hit the tip jar, don’t fight the feeling. Mrs. Other McCain is starting to worry about the expenses.
