"Infiltrierte Republikaner"

Der Blogger und Autor Michael Connery hat beim Parteitag der Republikaner deren Studenten Organisation infiltriert. Vor ein paar Monaten hatte ich Connerys Buch "Youth to Power: How Today's Young Voters Are Building Tomorrow's Progressive Majority" gelesen. Beim Parteitag der Republikaner habe ich Connery dann persönlich kennen gelernt.


The Issues on Labor Day: Bush, McCain, and Teen Pregnancy

Today, the Republican National Convention started in St. Paul/Minneapolis. The official program was shortened due to the potentially dangerous storm Gustav. The happenings on the floor in Xcel Center took place for only about 3 hours. President Bush, who was supposed to headline the evening stayed in Washington to deal with Gustav. One delegate told me that that is the best thing that could have happened. Having Bush in St. Paul, he argued, would have only given Obama more ammunition against McCain.

I actually first heard about it, when I was at Denver International Airport this morning waiting for my flight to Salt Lake City to depart.
