Disclaimer: These photos were taken during the Daily Kos Debate Watch Party. No Kossacks were harmed and no chandeliers were broken... that I know of.
Ignore the hecklers, or not.
Keep your eyes open!
jakedog, Ebby, p50 and GTP show us how it is done.
Ian, the Freeway blogger. Perfection while watching the debate.
Be ready and smile even when the kossack behind the camera is not!
To catch the diva on film, you must set your camera to action shots.
Here we have Lt. side pocket pointing out how food is a good photo prop.
Oh, who am I kidding? side pocket had just discovered tomatoes in a salsa!
Here GTP shows us how to pretend to know what the fuck is going on like Meteor Blades, even though you are clueless like me.
Excellent GTP! :)
President Obama strikes a pose while FLOTUS Michele Obama applauds all fun loving hippies, cause we are awesome! oh and she was overheard whispering for the President to scoot over because he was blocking Ko's view of the game:
Becareful when you are photographing other kossacks like this guy.
You don't want to appear as an obsessed fan girl.
Wait. What? Glen, how did you get into my diary and edit it? arrg.
"She's a fan girl."
Last tips and encouraging note: Go to the Meet Ups. Meet your fellow kossacks and look into their eyes, see their smiling faces, hear their voices. Embrace them.
For those of you attending the Daily Kos Holiday Bash, The Hotel Shattuck Plaza is the kossacks home away from home while visiting. It is just up the street and absolutely beautiful. The photo above is of the chandelier in the lobby.
Thank you navajo, side pocket, and all SFKossacks for leading your fellow kossacks out of their basements and into the sunlight.
One last special thank you to Glen the Plumber and his beautiful wife remembrance for their input in this diary. You rock!
