Foil Hats at the Kos Convention

I had to laugh at this:

FOR ALL the bashing of the mainstream media at the YearlyKos convention, the bloggers in attendance clearly wanted to be taken seriously by the reporters covering the convention. Their blogs frequently quoted from mainstream newspaper articles, and they tried to have their photographs taken with the likes of New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.

But some started to worry about the image they were projecting outside the blogosphere on Saturday when some bloggers started an unusual contest — making the most original tinfoil hat.

As dozens of bloggers donned their creations with delight, television crews and newspaper photographers descended on them. “Oh, no. This is going to be the B-roll on TV tonight,” said one dismayed blogger.

Foil hats? Those gate-keepers? Why?

Oh, yeah: They think that electing a Democrat president will solve America’s problems.
