To the convention!

This is a call for all Democrats to go to the convention and let their voices be heard.

Aren't there already such diaries, you ask?  And aren't they already clogging up the rec list for no good reason?  The answer is yes on both counts.  But I refer not to the Democratic Party Convention in Denver.  I am talking about ComicCon 2008!

You see, when I was about twelve, I collected comic books.  While this hobby was short-lived, it was through comic books that I first learned of Bizzaro World. In Bizarro world, you see, everything is the opposite of how it is on the Earth we know and love.  Superman is evil, the Flash is slow, beauty is despised and ugliness celebrated ... you get the picture.

You may be asking yourself, gentle reader, why is he talking about this on a political website?  Is he in Bizarro world at this very moment?  No!  You see, Bizarro world is of the utmost political relevance.  For it is only in Bizarro world where a Democratic Convention floor fight is a good idea.  It is only in Bizarro World that the notion that the Democratic superdelegates should make the candidate trailing in pledged delegates the nominee of the Democratic party is not a recipe for disaster.  It is only in Bizarro World that the "popular vote" should include beauty contests in Florida and Michigan, and where simply adding the vote counts from primaries and caucuses together could be considered a reasonable proxy for the "will of the people".

Thus, if the Democratic nominee is to be decided through a nasty floor fight at the Democratic convention, I invite all Democrats to join me at ComicCon 2008, for it is only in Bizarro world that such a situation will not result in the election of not-Bizzaro George W. Bush II in November.

See you at the convention!

What the hell

by that time we all will need a little down time.  That convention might seem positivly serene and peaceful after the mayhem around here these days.

All hail Groo!

Re: To the convention!

San Diego ComicsCon has gone all boothbabes and movie promos. If you want good comics and an excellent convention, come to Portland, OR for Stump Town Comics Fest (admittedly, you won't get a chance to do that until early in the Obama presidency).

Re: To the convention!

Get me ticket from Dallas to San Diego and I'll do whatever you want at the conference.

Just let me hear DiDio speak on Final Crisis before he kills them all.

. . . and let me meet Judd Winnick.

I heard a rumor a while back that Barack was considering making an appearance at it. Would be one heck of a voter registration drive if he did appear.

I live in San Diego

andit really is nerd haven. Aside from ComicCon, we have the professional gaming league, or whatever it's officially called, and a World of Warcraft card game tournament headed here in the next couple of months.

Re: To the convention!

Better odds of coming home alive.  If the Dems go to the convention without a nominee, it will be outrageously ugly.  Thi convention sounds safer, albeit a bit tamer.
