Progressive “Convention”, Newsom “Rally” and More This Weekend!

What a wild weekend this promises to be for politickers, politicos, pundits and the like. As I mentioned before, the Progressive Convention starts Saturday at 10am at 627 Turk Street. I continue to be amazed at the myriad of rumors, opinions and the like about this “convention” (including my own opinions based solely on whats out there now) that are all over the internet.
Fortunately, later tonight I’ll be publishing a feature article by journalist Savannah Blackwell, with insider information (as opposed to more “opinions”) on What’s Really Going On. So be sure to check back, or sign up for updates via RSS, etc. and check it out. Should be interesting.
If you’re not a fan of progressives, the Mayor’s re-election campaign will be hosting their own rally at 12:30 at their campaign headquarters on Sutter at Van Ness. Interestingly, it’s not that far from the “progressive” confab. If we’re lucky, perhaps folks from one side or the other will drive by and moon the opposing camp for some good old fashioned political theater.
If you take any pictures, post them to Flickr and let me know and I’ll happily link to your work. I’ll be taking a few photos and notes myself at the many circuses this weekend and will report back if anything entertaining happens. Remember, in San Francisco, politicians have a right, nay a duty, to act as entertaining as possible for the Blogger’s Union, Local 20-Deep and assorted hangers on!
