Um, Thanks, Kos

From the Daily Kos, final thoughts on NetRoots Nation in Pittsburgh:

So my favorite moment of the conference --

I'm at the Daily Kos party, introducing the comedy segment of the evening, and I ask, "Be honest, how many of you thought Pittsburgh was a shithole before you came here?" And just about everyone raised their hands. I assume those who didn't were mostly locals. Then I asked, "So what do you think now?" And everyone cheered wildly.

The Allegheny Conference and VisitPittsburgh couldn't have scripted it any better. "Not the shithole you thought it was!" There's a helluva slogan. I can't wait to read something like that from the President, after the G-20.
