and Patty Calhoun
both beat me to the punch on blogging last night's "Tonight Show" segment on Denver's preparations for hosting the 2008 Democratic National Convention. In my defense, I was waiting for NBC to post a videoclip of the segment, which I could share with you. No such luck.
Rather than re-hashing it here, I'll leave you to read Bill and Patty's summaries. Still, I have to say I was surprised that neither mentioned what was clearly the segment's most newsworthy moment. I speak, of course, of the declaration by the Honorable John Wright Hickenlooper, mayor of the City and County of Denver, that -- and I quote:
"We're confident we'll get it all laid."
Forget "two chickens in every pot." If that isn't the greatest campaign slogan of all time, I don't know what is.
