Overheard at the RNC

Donna Brazile is chatting with Mark Halperin as they walk through an atrium adjacent to the Xcel Center. She asks him for directions to the convention floor. He obliges her. As she rushes off, she shouts back to him, “Oh—I love your t-shirt!”

Since Halperin is not, in fact, wearing a t-shirt, I can only assume Brazile is referring to The Page’s pervasive convention-based self-promotion, which is as evident here in St. Paul as it was in Denver. Beautiful.

Has America ever needed a media watchdog more than now? Help us by joining CJR today.
