An unconventional Labor Day

As most Hot Air readers already know, the first day of the convention will feature little more than the most essential business of the GOP. Earlier I offered my proposal for a way to turn the first day into a fund-raising event that would have actually been productive, but no one doubted the need to tone down the politics on the first day. Whether that will extend to the second day remains in doubt, but the GOP has to conduct some kind of event on Wednesday and Thursday in order to nominate their candidates properly.
I will still go to the Xcel Center tomorrow to cover what events will occur. I’m curious as to what will happen, who will be around, and what the mood and undertone will be. Hopefully, I can land a few interviews and bring some news out of an arena that will likely get little attention from the mainstream media. In the meantime, it gives me an opportunity to test out my equipment and the platform in the Xcel. If nothing else, I can follow the news as well there as at home.
Keep an eye on us tomorrow. I’ll probably get an opportunity to do radio with the BBC and maybe with Hugh Hewitt. We’ll take it as it comes.
