And Now For Something Totally Different - AKA Blackberrys Are For Pussies

We've all been there.

A warm Wednesday night on the rooftop bar at the Hotel Washington in July (hey, someone has to hold down the fort in DC during the summertime when real power players scatter to the wind).

You've got a hot date. She seems interested - genuinely interested - as you drone on and on about fetching Senator Hatch a towel in the men's room at "fill in the blank location".

You're starting to stop thinking about September's Senate hearing on raising the minimum wage and starting to think about making some naughty in the nation's capitol.

Life is good.

Life is DAMN good.

Then your hot date's phone goes off in her purse.

No, don't worry. It's a July night in an off-election year in DC. What real power broker is actually working?

Whoever is on the other end of that text message/email/phone call doesn't have the juice that you have. You are safe.

You take a swig of your Kettle One and try to relax.

Then you actually see your hot date's phone and you break out in a full blown panic!

Her PDA is cooler and newer than yours!

Not good.

This. Is. Not. Good.

You seriously consider firing your assistant for allowing this happen to you.

You are so shaken that you forget about making naughty.


We've all been there. Hey, it happens.

So, don't let it. I have discovered a solution.

Be the first on your political block to own the coolest gadget ever - Apple's iPhone

It's like having twelve inches of show for the locker room. Only better. Because it's a PDA. And in DC you live on your PDA.

You've always knew that you were cooler than those drips in the Office of the White House Counsel. Now you can prove it.

And, you might get to make naughty after all.

Many thanks to T-Love for inspiring this post. The iphone looks dope. I can't wait to get it. I linked to Apple's countdown page in anticipation.
