Covering the Coverers

I've been meaning to note — and really should before it's too late — that Earl Appleby has been covering the DNC convention. From day one:

"I'm committed to seeing Bush out of office in November and want to do what I can to help," says Jeralyn Merritt, a Denver defense lawyer who writes the TalkLeft blog. "To me the purpose of a convention is solidarity and getting strength from each other and renewed commitment to a joint purpose. I am a cheerleader. I am a partisan. I am an advocate. My goal is to get everyone else stirred up."

You've stirred me, Jeralyn. Just what we need, fawning coverage of a liberal convention by bloggers whose left-wing pap makes Dan Rather look objective. And how do we tell the convention bloggers from the delegate bloggers?

Day two looks at some of the first impressions of those bloggers, and day three pokes around St. Blogs for reaction. It makes for an interesting juxtaposition.
