DNC Wants Reporters Prepped for St. Paul
By Garance Franke-Ruta
DENVER -- Barack Obama has not yet given his acceptance speech here at the Democratic National Convention, but DNC organizers are already helping journalists look ahead to next week, passing out "A Survival Kit for Reporters" to those heading to St. Paul for the Republican convention that starts there Monday.
The kit contains a computer flash drive filled with "The McCain Files," for handy access to oppo research, a map listing DNC counterprogramming events around St. Paul (including a daily breakfast), PayDay and 100Grand candy bars, Extra Strength Tylenol caplets and a roll of Tums regular strength antacid.
Also included in the pack is a button using the McCain campaign's star logo on a blue background with, in white print, "Ask Me How Many Houses I Own," a series of DNC memos about McCain, and -- for the plane flight ahead, perhaps -- three McCain-themed crossword puzzles.
