Breakfast with CMR

I was glad to attend Cathy McMorris Rodger’s “Top O’ The Morning Breakfast” on March 29, at the Grand Davenport Hotel.

I was very happy that Cathy had copies of the Constitution placed at every place setting. While there, I was happy to see Sheriff Knezovich had shed 40 pounds - I told him he looks good; I was happy to hear Pastor Joe of the huge Life Center Church tell me fidelity is very important for married politicians and that he has been preaching about that lately. I was very happy Sen. Baumgartner agreed with me that all elected officials should be required to volunteer one day a month or quarter in direct contact with the poorest members of the areas they represent.

When I asked Cathy to work to keep the VA under its current structure and to protect it from privatization, I was happy to hear her say that the VA will never be about making money. I was, however, disappointed when thanking her for my new copy of the Constitution and I asked her to help me find the Emoluments Clause, she said she doesn’t know where that is and asked me why I wanted to know.
