The Glamwire News Team will arrive in Minneapolis at about 3 pm on Sunday August 31st. We will be spending a lot of time in Winona, Minnesota about an hour south of the twin cities, and also visiting with our friends the Missle Dick Chicks and the great Dr. Sphinter of Minneapolis, also an original Parent. All this is great…but as we head to that convention a note on Sarah Palin: Dammit…She does rock. Usually when someone unknown and surprising like this is picked for vp it’s a disaster, but that’s a definite for liberals. She may very well be a strong conservative pick. We doubt it….but she just may be. Sarah Palain is totally likeable. And that’s coming out about her really quickly. Was Joe Lieberman likeable? Geraldine Ferarro? Is Biden, when you prod him, likeable? We hear the answer to that may actually be no. (But hey, we personally like him, okay?) This is not as cut and dry as this seems. In fact, the election, no matter what, will be extremely history making, and McCain deserves credit for insuring that. But there can be no turning back on Roe vs Wade, and even if this hot babe can skin a moose, the country does know that… and the race is on. As they say in the midwest: WHOOPJA!
As we continue our reporting, serialized portraits from both conventions will emerge, along with a few other totally RAD serialized stories this autumn. The news team heads to San Francisco on September 4th to take the pulse of the band Howlin Rain, and to groove out on a farm in Marin County. C U in Minneapolis…
The Missle Dick Chicks unleashed the powerhouses at Code Pink...the "Delegates For Peace" who are seen here being surrounded by what amounts to roughly 400 really heavily armed riot police in Denver. This is just about the moment Bill Clinton will go on and make his speech in the hall.
Over the next few weeks Glamwire will serialize images and conversations we have had with delegates at both conventions, underlying, intensely, the choice at hand, both politically and especially fashionwise, this November.
Our old friends the Missle Dick Chicks hit the scene. Hatched at the best party in New York, Rubulad, led by Sari Rubenstein (at right), one of the original Parents, the Missle Dick Chicks blast off next to the Pepsi center last night. The undertoe of this convention has been, to be honest, a pack of really angry women that the Democratic party is trying to sweep under the Invesco Center tonight as they cling to the belief that Hillary Clinton is in fact the nominee and after the roll call yesterday, which these women assumed Hillary would win..the law suits will begin.
The Missle Dick Chicks are not what we are talking about here. They are just rip roarin’ gals from Crawford Texas out for a good time…and we will see them again in Minneapolis, and in fact will ride on their friggin’ art float, in the upcoming parade there . Yessir.
She will remain loyal to local Chicago designer Maria Pinto. The outfit is supposed to be turquoise. Here in the Glamwire News Room, we are awaiting the news about this outfit amidst a tense environment, where our fashion editors literally are having trouble breathing normally in anticipation of this incredible, historic fashion moment.
The Glamwire News team will be in Denver starting tom,orow, talking to delegates, getting a sense of just how passionate the split is between Hillary supporters and supporters of the new ticket. Up until the election, everything you have ever wanted to know about delegates…. you can find out right here on Glamwire TV
Swedish Commediene Joe Biden, oh just kidding, long time Delaware Senator Joe Biden Holds up a t shirt from Glamwire’s Movie “President” at The New England College Convention In Manchester New Hampshire, November 21, 2007. Biden is in Delaware right now, barbecuing and wearing that t-shirt, and hopefully having another one printed up that says: “Vice President.”
