In the ballroom, it has begun! The MC just made an announcement:
Please welcome civil rights activist….. Grammy-winner…. life-long Democrat….
Once again. Anyway, he played the trombone a bit and prepped to launch into the national anthem.
“Governor–can I say it yet?” he asked for permission from offstage.
Yes he could. “Governor Spitzer!”
(Sounds weird, don’t it? Governor Spitzer!)
NYS Dem party chair Dennie Farrell was up next, to the tune of that song. You know, the 80’s Morris Day-style one they used for Cherry Coke commercials.
