Tall Paul

Tuesday, November 04, 2008 | 10:30 PM

Very interesting party this evening -- an even split between traditional NYC Democrats, and former Reagan/Bush/Nixon aides and advisors. Lots of GOP members, and a few Obama advisors.

I spent a good portion of the evening chatting with Richard Whalen, a longstanding Washingon D.C. insider, and a fascinating character to boot.

The highlight of the evening: I met, and got to speak with, former FOMC Chairman, and current Obama economic advisor, Paul Volcker.  (Paul Volcker!)

Even better, I got to tell him my favorite Bush joke (actually, a quote from Allan Mendelowitz):

“The Bush administration, which took office as social conservatives, is now leaving as conservative socialists.”

It really cracked him up!

Tall Paul. How frickin' cool is that . . . ?

No landslide. No mandate. RAT-controlled government = more taxes, more regulation, and a lot harder to find a profitable investment.
