Yearly Kos

As you may or may not know, this weekend the progressive website Daily Kos is holding its annual convention — YearlyKos — in Chicago.

According to noted advocate of moderation and compassion Bill O’Reilly, Daily Kos — which has over 50,000 registered members and on the order of 600,000 visits a day — is a hate site that’s all but indistinguishable from Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, Mussolini, and David Duke. (Much more here.)

Sounds like it should be a good party!

I will be there to spread the hate, running a panel on global warming politics on Saturday morning from 10:30-11:30am. I will be joined by:

Fellow Gristian Tom Philpott will also be there, on panel called “Forging Links to an Alternative Food Chain” (Sat., 9:15-10:15am).

If you’re at the convention, or in the area, get in touch. Tom and I will be looking for excuses to drink discuss important issues.
