There’s an awful lot of stuff on this convention that’s not showing up on the news, so I thought I’d troll around around a bit and bring back some of the news you might have missed.
Here’s the IVAW misfits in their class photo (yes, I see you, AS);
Ace of Spades has AliceH on the job getting video and still of the event. You can go to her YouTube channel (and see fake waterboarding demonstrations) or to her photo blog to see the latest. Photos like this (that make parents so proud);
The Funk the War protest conducted by IVAW among the Code Pinks and assorted anarchists was videoed by a freelancer in Denver. You can watch this video about the horrible police state in which we’re living narrated by a bunch of spoiled brats who aren’t being arrested and tossed in jail.

The Weekly Standard‘s Jonathan V. Last tells us about the police state inside the Convention. From the American Prospect’s blog TAPPED, we find out not all of the delegates are pleased about Obama getting the nomination;
You have a Hillary shirt and a John McCain button.
Karen Brown: She was my first choice. Now I’m going to vote for McCain.
KB: I don’t like Senator Obama. His choices are all wrong. I feel secure with John McCain.
Where do you feel McCain and Hillary have overlap that Obama doesn’t?
KB: I feel that Hillary would make me also feel safe as far as terrorism goes while I think Obama would be thinking about it. As he said in an interview, I’ll “confront evil.” John McCain said I’ll “defeat” evil. I feel Hillary would’ve said the same thing. I want to feel safe here in America.
And a photo to go along with the transcript;
My mentor, Zombie, is still on the job, of course, sending out photos that will be the hallmarks of this cluster in Denver;
UPDATED: Zombie got in too deep last night.
