Here is where the fourth annual Daily Kos party at Netroots Nation was held.
They had an open bar, it was absolutely packed, and they were just getting started when I left.
Two of the folks pictured are bloggers and one is not. I’ll leave you to figure out who’s who.
Please tell me you at least got to talk with Markos. Though I have a feeling he’d end up a bloody stump afterwards.
I think it’s some kind of trick. They are all good looking, happy, smiling, people.
How could any of them be bloggers!
I guess neither blogger (whoever they are) is Kay. No BJ gear in sight.
I cannot imagine Kay braving the Great Orange Satan fest without wearing Tunch ‘Obey’ gear.

Are we going to get captions as to who these people are?
Or is the answer obvious and I’m too tired to think of it?
@Amanda: I could buy that Kay is the redhead. Though I think she identified herself as a blonde once. I could be mistaken however.
@Yutsano: I was not there, but I can assure you that Kay is not in those photos, from having met her on Friday.
I swear the redhead is ABL.
@Tovarishch Kevin: I’m teasing on that point anyway. Kay said earlier there would be no face portraits of BJers shown by mutual agreement. I’m willing to respect that wish.
@5 Comrade Kevin – June 19, 2011
Ha. See. It was a trick.
I had planned on going to that event, but I felt tired, and wasn’t sure I could do it, yet I’m here, commenting. D’oh.
I’m going to the Twins game tomorrow, which should be pretty cool, and may be the highlight of my trip, after the Balloon Juice meet-up, that is.
One of the pictured people is a commenter, AMIRITE?
@Tovarishch Kevin: I shall wish you well with the assumption that Joe Mauer will still continue to break my heart. I hope he’s saving up enough for the inevitable knee replacements he will need in the future. Catching is rather rough on the knees.
@Yutsano: Well played, Mauer.
Did my comment get eted? My comment got eted. FYWP.
EDIT: Which it now did twice. Fuck. You. Word. Press. No really.
So this is what Kosplay looks like.
@Yutsano: I understand your comments about Mauer and catching, it reminds me of Kurt Suzuki.
@Allan: Ick. I’m familiar with cosplay, and, just, ick.
@Tovarishch Kevin: I used to make the joke about Kurt Suzuki that my Japanese Suzuki is better than your Japanese Suzuki. It’s not as funny now that Ichiro is slumping. And the really funny part is folks are wondering why. HE’S THIRTY-FUCKING-SIX YEARS OLD!! The body naturally slows down as we age. Dumbasses.

maybe its been done, but i would think a blogger convention ought to have its main post conference gathering be held in the motif of an underwear party.
The Apollo 11 voyage to the moon and safe return to Earth in 1969 is more convincing than Kay’s bodily presence at Netroots Nation in Minneapolis in 2011.
bryanD: No one asked you. Now shut up before you make even more of an ass of yourself.

Yes! I’m finally a part of a nefarious conspiracy!
JMN: Your dream has been realized. You can die happily now good sir.
I don’t know what you’re doing, but your reply-fu is epic fail in this thread. None of your links work for me, at least.
To reply to this message:
Did that work?
ETA: Apparently not. FYWP.
Long version still works?
Stupid but foolproof (I hope) reply-fu:
Replace LINK with the (copied) link next to the person’s comment. Replace PERSON’S NAME with the name of that commenter.
When will our long national editing nightmare be over?
ETA: Reply to this comment would look like this:
Trick question. They are all DougJ sockpuppets.
RIP Clarence Clemons
I’m sorry, is this a conference of progressive activists or the fucking Oscars?
The Ancient Randonneur
Whoa. Who is that redhead?
Can you see, if you can get answers to these important questions:
Is the redhead single?
Would she be interested in dating a liberal, overweight, Indian man?
Looking forward to your reply ;-)
They have Oscars for fucking now?
Hmm..The red head is not a blogger since she doesn’t have an orange lanyard on. At least that’s my guess.
Fucen Pneumatic Fuck Wrench Tarmal
indeed, the avn is probably the oscars.
and fucking is one of the categories, or a number of them, depending on how you want to define it.
I do recognize the lady in the top picture, as she is one of my fellow Saturday Morning Garden bloggers over at DK, and the man is familiar, but I met so many people, I can’t possibly keep all of the names straight.
I didn’t stay long for the party, it was REALLY, REALLY dark in the bar and you could barely move, and I’m just not a crowd person.
Glad to be heading home today, but I had a great time.
Count me as one of those people who is intently interested in who the adorable redhead with the great smile is.
Huh? What Kos party?
I’ll wager that the two smiling people with the red lanyards in the top photo are the bloggers, and the redhead with the awesome earring is not.
@Catsy – It’s kind of like the Tea Party, only not.
