DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION UPDATE

Here are some CrapCam photos I took Monday night on the convention floor. It's really crowded out there, with thousands of people milling around and talking while the speakers call for Change.

One thing, aside from the crowd, that makes it hard to get anywhere is the TV networks, which set up their reporters on the floor, with their backs to the podium:

Pretty much everybody is for Change.

Change

I finally found the Florida delegation, and I am pleased to report that they are representing the state with great dignity. Here I am with a delegate who told me she is a county commissioner. I tried to keep the sunglasses, but as you can imagine they keep close tabs on those babies.

There are a lot of celebrities milling around the floor. Here (really) is Spike Lee's head:

Wooooowwww!!! It's like Disney and Vegas in Oz!!

I thought Democrats were wealthy and didn't need to beg for Change.

I thought the convention was in Denver, not Vegas?

Spike appears to be temporally shifted! Cool!

Who's that little person sitting on Dave's shoulder?

I am 'please' to hear that the milling is going well. (call for spell check, your honorable Daveness)

I dunno, Hammie, but she certainly looks perky.

Beijing to DNC. Dave's earned many points for endurance!

Wolf Blitzer looks sad

Dave:

We need an exclusive crap-cam shot of Mayor Hickenpooper to ensure that you are not making his name up.

Good Shichifukujin luck at the convention Dave!

so how much change did you have to give the bastards nice people before they'd shut up?

Those glasses inspire me to point out that the Florida State Bird is the Mockingbird. Not that I would suggest anything impolite.

In the network shot, izzat James Carville in the suit and sneakers?

I'm guessing the Florida Repooplicans won't be able to match the pink flamingo fun of the Dems.

Oh, look! There's Fred Thompson in that first pic! Har!

Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper, Hickenpooper,

What can I say I just love typing it.

Is that Walter in the background holding up a sign for North Dakota?

No, that's a Lift Station.

No, that's Nancy Pelosi.

Seriously. Very Vegas. I'm looking around for the slot machines and chorus girls. It's Obamapaloooza!

Annie, we'll have THESE!

i thought i saw spike lee's head in the crowd when i was watching the convention. this is sci fi, right? when does mr spock talk to the crowd? and i didnt want to point out your grammatical error mr language person. but, uh, i was 'please' to agree with the person who did. ahem.

And possibly this.

Ok, I'm thinking she was not a Seminole fan.

After the vote I think you should demand a Florida recount.

That's fun, Sioux, but let's face it -Dems know how to party.

Dave, I saw you on CNN for a flash last nite - they were interviewing old Sen McGovern and you strolled by, grinning like a possum eatin' garbage.

Rabbit, most Dems know many houses they own. It's the Publicans who are rich and don't need change.

Naw, Sio, we'll have these!

likes cj's glasses best. wonders how dave missed the flamingo hat.

thinks she dated that guy from annies last post.

Alien, let me know where all the rich available Republicans are. I could use a new house. And a new car. I promise to remember them.

CJ!! those are perfect. I'll get the wig.

The Coors Brewery, of Colorado donates a lot of $$$ to the Democrats, Budweiser to the Republicans. It's true what they say, people vote with their liver.

So do Republicans, Annie.

No wonder Repooplicans are so crabby. They drink Bud.

Is that Walter in the background holding up a sign for North Dakota?

Yes it is. And he's wearing a blue shirt!

I managed to watch all of five minutes of convention coverage last night on PBS. I caught the end of speech given by a guy who sounded exactly like Kermit the Frog. Is Kermit really there and if so, is he for change?

I like the lady in the third picture who chose this historic moment to give herself an eye exam.

Annie, that's lots better than drinkin' piss water Coors...just sayin'

i was so in favor of change that i switched channels.

One of Dave's flamingos appears to be taking a nap over his right eyebrow. Maybe it's using the eyebrow as a pillow.

i'm a political junkie. i watched on cspan, with no commercials and no talking heads. but next week - i'll be watching movies.
and thanks for correcting your spelling.

Had it on for a few minutes and heard Brian Williams say all that needed to be said: "This will basically be a FOUR day long info-mercial."

Wolf Blitzer looks sad

not ... half ... as ... sad ... as ... I'd ... be ... if ... I ... had ... to ... listen ... to ... him

(sorry, that's as close to Blitzer's tedious monotone as I can come...)

Suzy Q - that's a McCain flamingo. He's napping.

*pokes teeny hole in Siouxie's wine box*

whoaaaaaaaa...

*sucks wine from hole*

Annie, based on the standards set up by the Obama campaign, your comments about Budweiser were racist.

Martinishark - you are not qualified to play the race card. As Black Irish, however, I can.

Annie McHomey?? hu nu?

McWord! O'shizzle!

I'm a caucasian male - every group blames us for every problem, ergo I'm the most oppressed.

Mamas, don't let your cowboys grow up to be babies.

*tosses Sharkie the mini-violins*

OH Annie? Guess who else is a homey?

Mcschnorkle @ Siouxie! Too funny, chiquita!

I missed Candidate Michelle Obama's Speech.

You girls missed my point. I wasn't complaining, I was telling you to pipe down and hand me a beer.

You, BOY, missed our point. Which is, we don't give a rat's patootie what your point is. Or how small it is.

Annie sure seems to be missing the message of unity that's supposed to be embraced this week.

We are united in unity as we unilaterally make
a eunuch.

Where's my machete?

I'm using it to cut lime wedges.

Siouxie has more than one way to skin a shark.

I'll take all the change they wanna give me, and all the dollar bills too. but I'm still voting for dave for prez - he's the best and strongest candidate out there.
