  • Mood:

unsolicited endorsements

Lest we come across as too dismissive of the conventionblogger phenomenon, let us point to the Believer-LA Weekly synergy that is Joshuah Bearman's weblog. He filed dispatches from the primaries and is now reporting from the DNC "convo" [laweekly]. We are hoping that our use of second person and poli slang will help us to get credentials so we can join the ER team in "Boston" before the prexy nom acceptance speech.

Meanwhile, we are a little bummed about Dean's delegate release [bfa], and after the Clinton speech [cp] we are wishing for loopholes in XXII.

We congratulate the real media for their gradual ability to laugh at Jon Stewart and Mo Rocca's jokes. It looked like it was going to be very painful, now it looks less so. We do wonder if their makeup is intentionally bad. Do they hope to be mistaken for people with weblogs?

Finally, we are mysteriously infatuated with the Killers. This will probably last for a day or two.
