Just a few lines to let you know I’m still alive and here at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.
Had to stay in the hotel yesterday and cover for a travelling colleague on Pajamas Media – which was just as well since nothing happened what with the truncated convention schedule.
But today should be different as the convention gets into full swing. The question is, will anyone out there be watching it? I think tomorrow’s session featuing Sarah Palin will draw very well as will Thursday’s schedule with McCain’s speech. Not as well as the Democrats but at this point, I really don’t think it matters. Obama’s “bounce” was modest and will probably not last. I expect it to be neck and neck again in a week – regardless of anything that happens during the RNC.
I will be at bloggers row this afternoon and will try and post something from there.
