COVINGTON, LA - Fat Lester, the primary author of this weblog (not to mention its namesake) was recently blessed with the opportunity to meet Karl Rove, the brain behind George W. Bush’s two successful Presidential campaigns as well as his Presidency.
Mr. Rove is one of Fat Lester’s foremost role models, and a man whose work he admires tremendously. Not only has did he rise to the top of his profession - an extremely competitive and cut-throat one at that - he did so without ever graduating from college, a common theme among Fat Lester's role models (other examples include Rush Limbaugh, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs).
The meeting took place at a once-in-a-lifetime dinner featuring Dr. Rove and GOP political strategist Mary Matalin following a public book signing in Covington, Louisiana. Dr. Rove has been touring America promoting his new book: Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight.
The event was held at a private residence just a few miles from Fat Lester’s home off of Three Rivers Road in Covington, Louisiana. At least 150-200 people were in attendance at the event, at which both Matalin and Rove spoke, with the former introducing the latter.
The party was great fun, as was getting to meet Karl Rove and Mary Matalin. It was certainly a night I won't soon forget.
