    of the suggested dress code. And more on Friday than on Thursday, and perhaps more on Saturday than on Friday.

    So, alas, many did not take the this-is-only-for-your-benefit-ladies advice to heart, and I'm sure there will be much tut-tutting by someone, somewhere about it.

    •  A suggested dress code?!?!?! (1+ / 0-)

      How the hell did I miss this?  And are you kidding me? SO freaking hilarious. Who does dress codes anymore, other than that you not appear nude or half nude?

      Can you imagine Kos putting out a suggested dress code for Net Roots? Hahahahahahahhahahhahahahahhahahhaha.

      But that brings up something that burns for me. How is it that CPAC draws tons of media coverage, and net roots draws close to NO media coverage?  Is it our "liberal media" at work?

      Seriously, this just sucks. Those who attend and speak at CPAC seem to be the craziest most right part of the Republican party and they get HUGE coverage.

      My God, we should be able to run a convention of true Marxists on the left and be entitled to as much attention from the media if fair is fair.

      Instead, the ONLY really active progressive convention I can think of is Net Roots, and when they meet, all you hear from the media is crickets.  Seems any left of center meeting of the minds is all about silly hippies to the media of today.

      It just infuriates me.
