Lots of media coming through the Big Tent [where DNC bloggers are stationed]. The camera crews are taking B-Roll, the random background shots they put into news reports.

And the B-Roll is ... people working on laptops! Exciting!

It's nothing like their own newsrooms where people are ... working on laptops!

George Orwell, Animal Farm:

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

What's on your mind?

Ow. So tell us where you really think the blogging revolution is going.

I picked up Fear & Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72 again last night since the real world has finally caught up with Hunter's convention. McGovern just selected Eagleton - not by any means a candidate of change - and Thompson rants for 1/2 page about the squandering of the opportunity for change.

Agreed. I read somewhere the other day that Cesar Chavez was under consideration. That would've been a much better pick.

Michelle Obama just gave one of the four best convention speeches I've ever seen. The others were Obama's and Kerry's four years ago and Al Gore's in 1996.

Obama got done tonight what he wanted to do: shatter for all time the meme of Michelle as some sort of black power crusader. The Leach endorsement was a nice touch as well, though I think his speech would have been better suited to an AHA panel than to this type of event.

Your analogy is right on. What you forgot to note is that the orange porcine one is getting high on the hog with his "hospitality." Yet another money-making scheme from the one whose so-called blog is nothing but a Ponzi scheme. I still wish the Writer's Union would go after him for making money off others' writings and not paying them for it.

Thanks, though I don't see Markos in quite as negative a light as you do. If not for his traffic, this and many other sites would not exist. We have to acknowledge that, at the same time we deride him for selling out to those whose gates he crashed.
