    The Daily Show's John Oliver on the downside of equality

    In the midst of the ridiculous line to the Pepsi Center on Tuesday night, I found myself standing alongside none other than British-born comedian John Oliver, a correspondent for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart who I'd just enjoyed at the first of th...

    Bottleneck blues

    As soon as Tuesday's taping of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart wrapped (read all about it here), I raced back to Westword's 10th and Broadway office, parked my car, and began the trek to the Pepsi Center for the evening's Hillary Clinton-centric spec...

    Inside the first Denver taping of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

    Big fences make cranky talk-show hosts

    Frustrated by Fox

    After my success at getting into CNN's outside-the-Pepsi Center base of operations, I moved a hundred yards or so down the perimeter to Braun's Bar & Grill, which Fox News has taken over for the run of the Democratic National Convention. Unlike with ...

    Breaching the CNN barrier

    Ken Salazar: scintillating

    John McClane for President

    Denver's Freewheelin bikes: best freebie ever

    Denver right now is essentially one big schwag bag. Everywhere you go, everyone's giving stuff away: smoothies, condoms, booze, morals, you name it. The best freebie of all, however, has to be the Freewheelin program that has 1,000 bikes stationed ar...

    Umm, sirs, that doesn't look like Barack Obama

    Some local street artists -- I'm told they go by "Jher451" and "el mac" -- had the audacity to paint this totally Obama-less mural on the side of the La Boheme strip club this week. It seems the portrait artist, el mac, was all Obama'd out. OK, fi...

    The DNC color chart

    Fox News' Shepard Smith -- the planet's handsomest man

    Of course, it's understandable why Fox News' Carl Cameron would spend so much time on his makeup -- he's got to compete with his FNC colleague, super-dreamy Shepard Smith. I walked past him on Tuesday, and he's got the most beautiful complexion I've ...

    Alaskans get the cool treatment

    What did Alaska do to piss off the DNC? Its delegation has worse seats at the Pepsi Center than Guam, which, for those of you who started skipping geography in first grade, isn't even a state -- and it's a helluva lot smaller besides. Before the conv...
