The Daily Politics Liz Benjamin
I could not resist publishing this....andy

From the division of shameless media self-promotion...
My colleagues in the
Legislative Correspondents Association, the brave souls who cover the state Capitol up in the hinterlands of Albany, asked that I plug the upcoming 107th annual LCA show - the nation's longest-running political satire extravaganza.
For the uninitiated among you: Think the Inner Circle show, only with lower productions values and meaner jokes.
Tickets are still available for the black-tie dinner next Saturday night, which will feature post-show reubttals from Gov. Eliot Spitzer, Senate Minority Leader Malcolm Smith and former Republican state comptroller candidate Chris Callaghan, who is said to be planning a turn at the piano - something that hasn't happened sinceex-Rep. Alfonse D'Amato's response, I'm told.
This year's show features such gems as:
- Ramblin' Joe (about everyone's favorite 78-year-old Senate majority leader).
- He Hates Us (in which legislative leaders lament about how the new governor hates them).
- Stand By Your Gov (starring a certain Assembly speaker).
In the interest of full disclosure...I will be taking the stage during Act II (most likely sporting a blonde wig) as New York's junior senator in a duet with her rival for the Democratic nod, Barack Obama.
It's also AP veteran Marc Humbert's last show as a fully-employed reporter (he's retiring this summer after more than three decades in the business).
Tickets are $300 apiece, and all proceeds after show expenses are covered go to charity. Tables of 8, 9 and 10 are available. Call 518-455-2388 for more information.
