MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE — I’m sitting in between bloggers Jim Newell, Associate Editor of Wonkette, and Dean Barker, Managing Editor of Blue Hampshire.

Wonkette is running the photo at right in which Dean (in sweater vest) and I are hard at work bringing you the content you’re seeing now… including the video of our trip here by horse-drawn carriage, and Dean’s liveblog of the debate.
