Netroots Nation Ferlo/Massa Photoblogging

PA State Senator Jim Ferlo and Representative Eric Massa (NY-29) at the Netroots Nation closing keynote. You wouldn’t think it to look at him, but Ferlo is a total DFH.

Netroots Nation CLosing Keynote Photoblogging

Three Amigos Edition, as Adam Bonin, Arshad Hasan, and Raven Brooks all came out on stage together.

First, Adam led the audience through a surprisingly charming rendition of Frere Jacques.

Netroots Nation Miscellaneous Panel Photoblogging

There were some panels I just didn’t get a lot of photos of, due to either time or lighting constraints. Some photos from the campaign finance reform panel, and the “Building A 21st Century Economy” panel.
* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Professor Lawrence Lessig. He gave a fantastic presentation on our corrupt finance system and the need for public campaign financing, but the house lights never came back up afterward…

Dave again. The low light makes his eyes look like they’re almost all pupil, which is either kinda cool or kinda scary.

In which I make all the panelists hate me:

Darcy is overwhelmed. Actually, I think she was cracking up. Adam is only mildly amused.

Oops, my bad, it was just an optical illusion – I was so eager to get the scoop that I forgot to check my facts. I would like to apologize to Congressman Inslee and his family, and to anyone else who might have been offended by my totally understandable mistake.

Netroots Nation Joe Sestak Photoblogging

And here is the other half of the not-on-the-stage-at-the-same-time showdown between Arlen Specter and Joe Sestak. Sestak’s manner was aggressive to the point of almost angry (he grabbed or poked Ari Melber’s arm a few times), and he flubbed his lines a few times. He was also rather spectacularly stumped by a question about how he would reach out to the Pennsylvania netroots.

I’m still voting for him, though.

Netroots Nation Arlen Specter Photoblogging

Hey look, it’s my new *cough* Democratic senator, Arlen Specter! He actually made a very good case for himself, provided you don’t know anything about his actual legislative record.
* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Arlen looks out at the audience and wonders what he’s gotten himself into.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Reviewing his index cards.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Behold, he smiles!

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
If I blow this up all the way, I can almost read his index card, but it’s just a little too blurry. Phooey.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Arlen gestures very sincerely.

Netroots Nation Convention Center Photoblogging

The five of you who read my blog regularly know that all these people pictures I’ve been posting from Netroots Nation are totally out of character for me. I’m much more comfortable walking around taking pictures of the building itself. Like so:
* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Yes, I was taking pictures of the ceiling during the opening keynote ceremony.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The railing on the stage right before Bill Clinton appeared. Although I assume it looked pretty much the same after he appeared, too.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Chairs waiting for Mike Lux, Tanya Tarr, and Howard Dean.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
This was on the other side from the main hall where the keynotes were. I guess it’s basically for storage and spare parts.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
It looks a little bit like the inside of an alien spacecraft…
