I, DNC credentialed reporter...
This week will certainly be a rush, as I was approved for DNC press credentials as part of Catholic News Agency at very late notice. So late that we have had very little preparation time, so leads are welcome either in the comments or at my new e-mail at (PR.joneskevinj) over at, let's distract the spammers, gmail.com.
I have already suffered through the LGBT Caucus, where Tim Gill conveniently provided to all hearers a synopsis of his $150 million dollar-tossing strategy to eradicate lawmakers and laws which disapprove of his sexual behavior.
Certain pro-life Democrat events are also on my schedule. Perhaps I'll even run into Jill Stanek.
And, reader, have you heard about the 5,000-strong Latino pro-family rally? Me neither.
Limping around LoDo during convention time is sure to be memorable, despite the incessant boosterism of the political convention.
There is a treatise to be written on the transient brevity similar to protesters' signs and e-mail spam. This hypothetical document could cite Alisdair MacIntyre's remarks on protest and emotivism. What do these people praising peace, anarchy, or Fox News hope to accomplish besides appearing in a digital photo to be forgotten with haste?
Further, someone must explain to the Washington Post that few people in Denver actually have an "inferiority complex" in comparison to other cities. Most of us, if we even bother, just affect inferiority to flatter people from back east, who after all are our guests.
(I include my picture in case any of my internet acquaintances happen to be in town.)
