Live Chat in Your Skivvies

What happens when somebody who has little interest in politics, is generally uninformed about world events, and tends to forget about the more important parts of American history hosts a live chat session during the Republican National Convention? Well, find out on September 4, 2008, 7PM-9PM Pacific Time, when I—yes, I—will host Bamboo Nation's first-ever Freewheelin' Chat during John McCain's speech at the close of the convention. It won't be so scary if we all watch it together, so please join in on the discussion (or enter my chat room anonymously and witness the fun).

I don't know how many people will actually be interested in doing this, so this is a pilot attempt, and I may very well end up being in that chat room alone except for one stalker in North Dakota who I will provide running commentary to. And cheap thrills, I suppose.

To whet your appetite, here's Bill Maher talking about that inexperienced, anti-choice, creationism-embracing hunter-woman who actually said: "A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made." I guess the devil made it then. Okay, take it away, Bill:


  1. Since I live in Wheeling, perhaps I'll make the chat.

  2. You and your fierce mustache are certainly welcome!

  3. Oh, my God, I'm SO glad Bill Maher is back. Thank you for posting this, I am very relieved he got a dialogue going on the tube right away about what a wingnut Miss Alaska really is.

    What was McCain thinking? The Hilliary voters will pick her simply because she has a vagina? Please.

    (Nobody would vote for me just because I have one!)

  4. Yeah, you know, I thought that she really doesn't have a chance--she's going to get eaten alive. But the my own mom said she was going to vote for McCain now because of Palin...and I fear for the future of this country. E-gads!
