McCain-Palin: A Disaster in the Making?

TalkLeft is on overload. Here's a place to continue the discussion on McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate.

I think this will be a redux of McGovern-Eagleton.

TalkLeft is Down Again

I'm not sure why, maybe the 2,600 people who tried to access it in the last hour. We're working on it.

In the meantime, you can comment here as an open thread.

I've got a lot of pictures up on Picasa. Yesterday's photos are here, earlier convention photos are here.

Hillary's Speech

TalkLeft is crashing . This is the backup site. Feel free to comment.

Hillary just began speaking.The most electric moment of the convention so far.

Michelle Obama, who has been shown all night long laughing and animated, is clapping but with the tightest mouth I've seen on her, as if she's totally nervous. She's constantly pursing her lips. Relax, Michelle, Hillary's on your side now.

Update: She hit it out of the park. Great speech. She also outlined all the Democratic values. Not a hint of bitterness. She projects the voice of experience and leadership with supreme confidence and credibility. The consummate Democrat.

TalkLeft is Back UP

Update: TalkLeft is back up.

Well, as I predicted, TalkLeft went down tonight. I just got back from the Pepsi Center and will upload my photos and provide my thoughts here.

It was an exciting night -- especially since I ended up with a floor pass and was able to roam the entire Pepsi Center, from the bottom-most level where all the production stuff was going on to the club levels and private suites.

TalkLeft BackUp Site

This is a backup site for TalkLeft: The Politics of Crime. It will also allow immediate posting of updates, photos and video from my i-Phone and other devices during the Democratic National Convention.

Be sure to bookmark it now because if TalkLeft's server crashes or goes down during the convention, you won't be able to access it then to get the link.

This site was set up in 2002 and hasn't been used since, then which explains the very old archived posts. I'm keeping them for posterity. I have updated the templates, added widgets and other new things, and hope it is of value to readers during the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

To comment, you can sign up at Open ID. You may find out when you get there you already have an Open ID account. If possible, please use your Talkleft screen name when commenting so we know who you are.

I experimented with Wordpress and Movable Type before settling on Blogger. For one thing, it the TL server goes down, so would this backup site.

Comments and suggestions, from design to content, are welcome. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the comment template look like the one on TalkLeft, rather than Blogger.
