George McGovern's Party

July 20, 2012
They threw a swell birthday party for George McGovern last night. The former World War II bomber pilot, U.S. senator and presidential candidate turned 90. There was a fancy cake and toasts ("Too bad you're a Methodist, George," said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, raising a glass of wine in his friend's honor) and a ton of reminiscing from a hundred or so grey-haired liberals in the rooftop room at the Newseum.

Well, not everyone was grey-haired. Or liberal. Sen. John Thune, the conservative Republican from South Dakota, defied the edicts of political polarization to attend. It was a laudable sign of respect by one South Dakotan for another, and a sign that Thune is a class act, the audience concluded.
