–In the seven minutes between the time that CNN reported that the helicopter had troubles and the time it was reported that we were all safe, Congressman Markey had filed papers for the Senate seat.
–It was enlightening to see the differences between the political system in Afghanistan and here. In Afghanistan, they call it “swift-goating.”
(more jokes to follow in comments; please add any if you were there!)
Bob Joy, chairman of the PCDL, presented Senator Kerry with a plaque.
The evening was hosted by State Senator Bob Creedon (D-Brockton) and by Plymouth County Treasurer Tom O’Brien (D-Kingston). While Creedon cracked some jokes and kept the evening flowing, O’Brien bravely managed the list of introductions of scores of elected officials (including Senate President Terry Murray (D-Plymouth)), Town Democratic Committee chairs, union officials, and candidates for office.
Overall, a great night for Plymouth County democrats!
The event will be broadcast on Brockton community cable.
