For Live Convention Blogging, Check Out Bob Cesca!

There is no dearth of news coming out of the convention, via MSM or the blogging world (go to Memeorandum, and wear waders).

Nor on the airwaves, with cable news employing resources and staff, that is only slightly higher then when a white woman goes missing.

So, lets us point out, above the fray, a voice or two you should check out.

Bob Cesca's Goddamn Awesome Blog! Go!

No, not our description, that is the name.

He's been going at it, giving minute-by-minute updates, marked with wry, and often, hysterical observations.

Liveblogging The DNC - Day One

Speaker Pelosi is making with the talking now. We heard her earlier as she was nominated as the chair of convention just prior to the ratification of the platform. And, by the way, she's wearing a lovely dentist smock.
Liveblogging The DNC - Day Two
My senator, Bob Casey, just delivered the line of the night so far:

"John McCain calls himself a maverick, but he votes with George Bush over 90 percent of the time. That's not a maverick. That's a sidekick!"

Governor Schweitzer of Montana is totally eviscerating Senator McCain on CSPAN. But of course the cable news networks are busy talking about how the Democrats aren't eviscerating Senator McCain. This is fucking horseshit. Here's Schweitzer:

"If you drill in all of John McCain's back yards -- even the ones he doesn't know he has... that single answer proposition is a dry well!"
Check it out ...

Also, take a spin by Dennis Perrin, for more on-the-money takes on the Denver Dog-and-Pony Show.
James Carville physically resembles an "X-Files" creature, his marble-mouth syntax harder than ever to decipher. Plus, he looks like he really doesn't give a shit about the convention. He's a Clinton crony, so he can't be happy about how the convention is shaking down, despite tonight being Hillary's big show. But overall, he just appears bored, phoning in his standard routines.
David Brooks acts like a balding, nearsighted hyena, baring his blunt fangs while making predictable, pre-chewed points. Jim Lehrer looks nearly dead, and no amount of pancake can make Mark Shields appear as if he's 98.6. Probably the freezer he's kept in between segments.
