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

    The Daily Show With Jon Stewart is taping shows at the University of Denver's Newman Center Tuesday through Friday during DNC week, and after trying and failing to snag tickets through the show's website (admittedly, I started late), I figured I'd be...

    Big fences make cranky talk-show hosts

    On Monday morning, when Peter Boyles started broadcasting live from Civic Center Park, the park was wide open to all visitors. On Tuesday morning, same thing. But when he arrived at 3:30 a.m. this morning, the park was suddenly surrounded by temporar...

    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

    Wanted to check out CNN's Democratic National Convention headquarters -- Brooklyn's, a restaurant near the Pepsi Center in an area referred to by the security staff as "the perimeter." So I ambled up to a secuirty guard at one entrance and asked if I...

    Ken Salazar: scintillating

    Colorado Senator Ken Salazar has been chosen to help formally nominate Barack Obama for president on Wednesday night, and all I can say is, brace yourself for the thrill of a lifetime. Salazar is among the most laconic, monotonal speakers ever electe...

    The Westword.com blog shortcut, belated August 26 edition

    John McClane for President

    In the melee of the insatiable, frenzied Obama-fucking that currently is D-town, Colorado, there are glimmers of opposition - fratty, white heads that suddenly poke out of holes, making one wish he was clutching a Whac-A-Mole baton. They are McCain ...

    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...

    Soledad O'Brien needs reminding sometimes

    Everyone knows CNN's Soledad O'Brien -- including, presumably, Soledad O'Brien. Nevertheless, technicians at the network apparently want to be certain her identity doesn't occasionally slip her mind. During a walk-through of the Pepsi Center on Tuesd...

    The DNC color chart

    Loads of Democrats have made sport of the color-coded terror-threat warning system from practically the moment it was instituted by the George W. Bush administration. Turns out, though, that at the DNC, Dems have a color code of their own. A red pass...

    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 ...

    Carl Cameron touches up

    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...

    The DNC media: practice, practice, practice

    Don't know the name or network affiliation of the reporter in this ultra-mediocre photo from the Pepsi Center on Tuesday morning -- but I do know she's a perfectionist. She had to deliver the following rather awkward line about the DNC festivities to...

    Newest DNC collector's items: no-longer embargoed speeches

    Dick Wadhams on the loose

    Pepsi security breach

    Shortly after 8 a.m. on Tuesday, the upper level of the Pepsi Center was practically deserted. While completing an entire circuit, I encountered only one maintenance crew member -- although I saw her twice, so maybe it should count double. I also dis...
