RNC ‘O8: At Times Just a Big Familiar Media Party

100gg3132.jpgSo, by this point you know that FBNY is here in St. Paul-Minneapolis for the RNC along with FishbowlDC, and TVNewser. But that is not the limit of familiar faces! Here’s a short round-up of people who we seem to be spending a lot of time with, be it at the buffet, the CNN Grill, Sammy Hagar concerts, or extended walks around the ever-shifting Xcel barricade.

  • Rachel Sklar has been interviewing media conventioners about their first convention: Laura Ingraham has some choice words about Chris Rock dating back to 1996.
  • Ana Marie Cox is doing triple duty, covering both conventions for Swampland, CQ, and (the not to be missed) Twitter (“John McCain PUT DOWN the White House!”).
  • Tim Carney, our favorite Conservative Libertarian (also the “new Robert Novak“) has posted a convention preview (Palin pick: “a high-risk/high-reward decision.”)
  • Rex Sorgatz, former Minneapolite and current FBNY direction giver, is Radaronline‘s RNC correspondent. Did you know there’s a statue of Mary Tyler Moore here…spinning!

    Anti-Religion Pix: Big Box Office?

    Cross and Switchblade.jpg

    Just in time for the holidays–a handy reference guide to the most anti-Christian films. The list is missing some of our favorites, though:

    The Cross and the Switchblade
    If Pat Boone in a dog-collar and a smarmy expression doesn’t destroy your faith, you’re an idiot and we wash our hands of you.

    Change of Habit
    Mary Tyler Moore in a wimple and lots of eyeliner. Elvis in same, minus nun get-up.

    Twins of Evil
    Zealot witch hunter pushes twin nieces into vampirism. From the writer of Barbarella.
