Dave Barry: CNN Grill: For insiders only (plus me)
There is an innocent explanation for how I wound up on the floor of a bar with the governor of Montana. I was engaging in journalism. The key to political journalism is to gather insider information, and to do that, you need to go where the political insiders hang out.
Doug Robarchek: Question of the day: Are Democrats liberal scum?
I dont know if you know this, because Im not sure if its been mentioned in any of the news outlets (you know the liberal media never report anything good), but the Democratic National Convention is being held in Charlotte right now.
People who think politicos know best about how we should live our lives should consider the following observations from Wednesday at the DNC:
Dannye Romine Powell: Carolinas artists create works inspired by the Obamas
Picasso wasnt the only artist inspired by politics. Three Carolinas artists, each in his or her own way, has created art inspired by the Obamas.
Scott Fowler: Obama needs to offer hope Thursday night
In 2008, Barack Obama owned the word hope. In 2012, with Obama on the brink of accepting the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday night and running for re-election, that ownership is in question.
Tracy Curtis: Comfy shoes are the shoo-in for DNC streets
Somethings happening outside the EpiCenter. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBCs Morning Joe just came outside to join the masses. And to my surprise, shes not wearing high heels. But cute little flats.
