i'm probably not going to say much about the democratic national convention this week. i went to one night of the democratic national convention in 1996 when i lived in chicago. the whole thing just felt like i was inside one big vapid commercial. i find them to be completely uninteresting.
so while (i must admit) i am a little proud of the fact that some bloggers were given creditentials to attend and blog the convention out of an inexplicable feeling of blogger-solidarity, i've found i've lost interest in many of the bloggers who are actually writing from the convention. and many of those who are are normally among my daily reads. among my favorite bloggers, kirk seems to be one of the few who is going beyond fanboy-type posts. for most of the others, it would be more interesting to read them if they just stayed home. i guess it will be harder to procrastinate at work this week. not necessarily a bad thing when you get down to it.
on the other hand, i will be attending a watch kerry's speech party on thursday, so i guess even i am taking part in some of the convention madness this year.
