For those who follow politics like sports (blood sports, nowadays), today marks the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO. Attending in person to cover the event is Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Rob Rogers. He’s posting his cartoons and musings on his new blog.

I know other cartoonists are in Colorado this week. I’ll track them down and let you all know what’s going on.
UPDATE: Reports are trickling in. KAL is already in Denver and as is Michael Ramirez. Other cartoonists who will be attending include: Scott Stantis, Dan Perkins and Stephanie McMillan. Of course Ed Stein, Mike Keefe and Drew Litton are all locals, so I’m sure they’re going to be busy as well.
