convention

Jim Gaffigan, the usually clean-cut comic, followed up his profanity-laced rant against President Donald Trump with a challenge to Trump supporters.
Butt-Con is a thing, and it’s here to celebrate our greatest ass-et. The event brought together experts in all-things-butt —from sex workers, to physicians and even a “butt-washing specialist.”
Lawrence Ware has had enough of white evangelicals' love for Trump.
Bronys, ventriloquists, Abraham Lincoln impersonators... The gangs ALL here.
Will Michelle Obama follow in Hillary's footsteps and eventually run for the Senate in Illinois? We certainly hope so.
This is definitely going to be my final report from Philadelphia. I realize I'm almost a week late with it, but it was a busy and sleep-deprived week all around.
I know you liked Bernie. I know you like Hillary, too, and that you'll happily vote for her in November. And I know you understand, at an intellectual level, the historical significance of the events of last night.
Donald Trump seems to grasp the advantage of going second, repeatedly demonstrating his skill in "the art of the response" to position his reactions to opponents and events to refocus attention on himself and his message. This time, Democrats took a page from Trump's book and leveraged the advantage of the opportunity to counterpunch.
I conducted the following interview yesterday, before the convention actually started. Denise Merrill is a Connecticut delegate (although not, as she pointed out to me, a superdelegate) and serves Connecticut as their Secretary of State. A recent achievement was the state becoming the first to pass a campaign finance reform law which created a public financing system for elections -- all the other states with such laws created them through ballot initiatives or referenda.
