Sorry about lack of blogging. I’m traveling to Providence today to go to Netroots Nation. I’ll be on two panels.
And then the one I submitted:
Last year, there was a lot of drama because the annual evidence that right wingers are that childish and immature, which is a conference called Right Online conservatives always try to schedule nearby, happened to be in the same hotel where most of the Netroots-goers were. That’s how I managed my brief and strange meeting with Andrew Breitbart in the street, and that’s how one belligerent wingnut got arrested for trying to pick a fight with Netroots attendees. One of the advantages of having it in Providence is that Providence apparently isn’t big enough for two conferences, so the “me too” wingnut conference is going to be far away in Las Vegas. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be interesting stuff to blog, I’m sure. It is, after all, an election year. I’ll also be tweeting, so if you’re interested, follow me there.
Who’s going this year?

‘How can we pray for you?’ Fox hosts lavish praise on Trump as he exits interview to call Putin
Fox News hosts offered their prayers to President Donald Trump as he cut off his coronavirus update to call Russian president Vladimir Putin.
The president called in Monday morning to "Fox & Friends," which he regularly watches, and boasted about his administration's coronavirus response and attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whom he slurred as a "sick puppy" for criticizing his handling of the crisis.
"We have the greatest economy in history and all of a sudden, one day, they said everybody has to stop, nobody can go to work, we have to stop and we think of this, we're paying people not to go to work," Trump said. "It was always the opposite. We paid people to work, now we're paying people not to go to work -- and with that, I have to go to work, too."
