Jen-Lo offers Bjorn Handeen's (pictured) Facebook take on the Lincoln Day Dinner: “I left (Gov. Otter's) table to mingle (and thereby I almost convinced State Controller candidate Todd Hatfield to enter a poetry slam with me), and when I came back I was ousted out of my seat by Gov. Otter’s staff. I was disappointed, but honestly, I think I learned more from my new table mates than I would have at the head table. I sat next to Alan Goulob, our local bitcoin advocate, and a public relations consultant from Sandpoint. We dissected the speeches. Not the content, but, sitting alongside a communications professional, we critiqued their message delivery skills. Treasurer Ron Crane, running unopposed, got our table’s award for best speech. Later on, I asked an inebriated Republican official to introduce me to him, and he drunkenly motioned for Phil McGrane, candidate for ID Secretary of State. I told him I liked his yard signs.” Full account here.
