Pugilistic pundit David Sirota will be the keynote speaker for the Ada County Democrats' 2007 JFK Banquet on Friday, November 16, at the Boise Centre on the Grove. Here's what some folks have said about the Denver-based Sirota, who has a national reputation and solid smarts on Western politics:
“A populist rabble-rouser" with a "take-no-prisoners mind-set."
- The New York Times
"The kind of pundit you'd like to have on your side in a knife fight and wouldn't want to cross in a dark alley."
-The American Prospect
“[Sirota is] Intense, driven, even obsessive [as he] fills the gap left by a timid Democratic establishment."
The JFK Banquet, held only every other year, is the biggest fund-raising event for the Ada County Democrats, as well as a kickoff to the election-year campaign season. Come enjoy an evening toasting our 2006 local and national successes and looking forward to many more in 2008. The evening starts with a social hour and silent auction at 6, followed by dinner at 7. For tickets ($60), contact the Ada County Dems at 331-2128 or via email.
