This is the first posting I’ve been able to make since getting back from the Libertarian Party convention in Portland. Many of you have been asking a lot of important questions about the convention. I’ll try to address as many of these as possible over the next few days as we catch up with blog entries and write articles and releases over at lp.org. Toward this end, I also expect to be the guest at Free Talk Live this evening, so feel free to call in and ask a question or two.
Perhaps the most burning question I’ve been asked has been the ever-so-important “What was Starchild wearing?” Here’s a picture with him, Bob Barr and our very own Nicholas Sarwark. If you can’t tell from the photo, Starchild’s sash reads: I Miss America. In what I’m guessing is an appeal to the more socially conservative wing of the party, he seems to have complimented his attire with a relatively small set of falsies.
Barr gave a good speech about what the Libertarian Party needs to do to become more electable. I’ll also add that I was very impressed with Nick’s parliamentary skills on the convention floor and with his nominating speech for incoming vice chair Chuck Moulton.
