Donna Meets The Snob, The Snob Meets Donna And It Was Awesome!

Monday night Democratic Strategist and CNN’s other “Gray Fox” Donna Brazile came to St. Louis to be the keynote speaker for the St. Louis City Library’s Black History Month observations and The Snob was in the audience. (Pictures were taken, but not by moi. I’m anxiously awaiting them showing up in my inbox. If they do not show up there I will be … devastated!)

Donna, who won the first ever Black Snob Top Pundit Award last year on this blog, is one of my favorite TV political commentators and she did not disappoint by being her usual funny, frank and delightfully charming self. After talking for more than an hour, Donna shocked the shit out of me and gave me a total shout-out at the end of the speech, asking “is The Black Snob is in the house?”

I, like an idiot, jumped up and down in the packed house shouting “I’m here! I’m here!” next to my delightfully patient and ever wonderful “Big Sis,” Denise. She then gave an rousing endorsement for my blog so … I can shout it to the rooftops, ya’ll!

Donna Brazile TOTALLY reads my blog! And that’s awesome.

Afterwards I got my pictures and an autograph and gave Donna a set of my Black History Month Valentines as a present, including a special one made just for her.

Other than telling her she was “awesome” about three times, I kicked myself for not asking her my super important question of “does TJ Holmes read this blog?” I mean, my Spidey sense sez “yes,” but some verbal confirmation would be nice. I tried to get Roland Martin to tell TJ I said, “Hey” once, but I’m pretty sure Roland did not follow through on that request.
