Hungry Monster Rabbits Are Destroying Cars Parked at the Denver…

Unfortunately, it seems like the authorities patrolling the rabbit-infested parking lots at the Denver International Airport will be forced to call on Brother Maynard to deploy the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

I Had A Dream Of A Convention With Sleep: Things I Failed To Appreciate

When I started this week, I figured that I would be tired by the end of it but still excited to be here. I had no idea I would be so bone-tired by the time Obama gave his speech that I couldn't even begin to parse my feelings on it. But there were so many people to talk to, so many parties to go to, so much… » 8/30/08 6:20pm 8/30/08 6:20pm

Jennifer Granholm Says, "Be Bold," Why Were You Put On This Planet?

One of the really amazing things about being at the Democratic convention this week was all the women (and young women) who were there — delegates, attendees, elected officials and others.

Lilly Ledbetter Knows McCain's "Out Of Touch With Reality"

It's not terribly often that you get to interview a feminist icon. Well, I mean, I guess it's getting more common for me, but still, it's pretty cool. So when my colleague over at Glamocracy » 8/30/08 2:40pm 8/30/08 2:40pm asked me if I wanted to interview Lilly Ledbetter, I was like, "Hell, yeah." Don't recognize her name? If you ever have to sue…

Conventional Crap: Moebama Underwhelmed By Barack's Beautiful, Moving…

Although I am basically a walking, red-colored zombie — or, I would be if my feet didn't hurt so much that I'm not really walking as much as limping — someone's got to wrap up the week of speechifying, pandering, branding and making the kind of history that causes grown people to cry before the speech even starts and… » 8/29/08 10:00am 8/29/08 10:00am

Liveblogging Obama From Invesco Field!

It only took me three hours, a nasty sunburn, three experiences with the metal detectors, multiple conversations with various security personnel and a really, really claustrophobic elevator ride to get here, but here I am, live at Invesco Field. I'm sandwiched in next to Katha Pollitt from The Nation » 8/28/08 8:43pm 8/28/08 8:43pm and overlooking…

Conventional Crap: Wednesday Surprises And The End Of Our Patience

Look, these conventions are hard. Some of us have it harder than others, what with getting up at the crack of dawn and walking miles a day and trying to pay attention to speeches when all we really want to do is curl up in bed and die. But I can't die, yet, if only because everyone will Twitter and text me so much… » 8/28/08 11:00am 8/28/08 11:00am

Liveblogging Bill Clinton's Convention Speech

Oh, damn, I barely got to my seat in time but I am here! They closed the hall again, like that's any big deal because every speech they close the hall (except in Boston, where I swear they bribed the fire marshalls). But this is Bill Clinton, bitches! 9:25 ET: » 8/27/08 9:00pm 8/27/08 9:00pm Um, shortest speech by Bill Clinton ever? Yes, we can. …

Conventional Crap: There Is Nothing But Hillary On Hump Day

Really, after last night, there's nothing else to talk about. There's no stupid McCain response » 8/27/08 10:00am 8/27/08 10:00am that needs to be parsed, no other headlines to read, it's just time to talk about Hillary. And so I'm lucky that I have a Clintonista with me today! is a fellow , but she's also a Denver local and the author of and the…

Liveblogging Hillary Clinton's Convention Speech

Former Virginia Governor (and current Senate candidate) Mark Warner was Hillary Clinton's lead-in tonight — how cool is it that a man was basically her warm-up act, by the way? Anyway, he's finished speaking, and we're waiting for Chelsea to start her introduction of her mother — this will be the largest crowd she's… » 8/26/08 10:15pm 8/26/08 10:15pm
