John Warner writes a very funny piece for Maud Newton about promoting his struggling book imprint. . . . Conan O'Brien sent his trusty correspondent, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, to cover the Republican National Convention. The hilarious two-part results are here and here. (My favorite line: "Rudy has a real challenge tonight in his speech. How do you think Rudy's going to be able to connect Bristol Palin's pregnancy to 9/11?" My second favorite, to African-American Lynn Swann, a former star with the Pittsburgh Steelers: "It's OK to admit you're lost. There are guys here who could escort you to a Democratic function.") . . . I meant to link a while ago to an article in The Nation that argues that Texas "will morph, by 2020, into the nation's second-largest Democratic state." . . . Lastly, this blogger sees some parallels between the '08 election and a particular season of The West Wing.

The best line was clearly the one about Joe Lieberman being born with the face of a Keebler elf. The follow question ("Do we really need to get into these people's country clubs?") was pretty good too.
