So long DNC ’08. Hello RNC ’08! FishbowlNY is about to hit the big, wide, American road with FishbowlDC; a trip that will either take us through Kansas, or Nebraska, or South Dakota, no one seems quite sure. Because no one has yet managed to wire the Plains states, or the interstates, look for us on Twitter. It’ll be just like Jack Kerouac except in 140 character bites and less profound. Hooray new media. Rumor has it the Observer‘s Steve Kornaki has a head start, and Mickey Kaus will be bringing up the rear.
And as I sat there listening to that sound of the night which bop has come to represent for all of us, I thought of my friends from one end of the country to the other and how they were really all in the same vast backyard doing something so frantic and rushing-about.
