We've largely been on the road, East-Bound and Down, from sweltering Vegas to sweltering Texas since last weekend's progressive "Netroots Nation" conference in Sin City, so haven't had much time to offer reflection and/or color beyond our post after the first day last week, including our interview with Markos Moulitsas and attempted interview with GOP "voter fraud" deceptionist John Fund.

So allow me to associate myself with the Jeanne "AKMukraker" Devon's fairly comprehensive coverage, which includes some great photos (several of yours truly, but other than that…), videos, charts and speeches of note from the three-day gathering of progressive bloggers and journalists. As Jeanne, she of the great Alaska blog The Mudflats was largely responsible for tricking me into, talking me into, convincing me to stop by the conference --- as I've never gotten to one of these Progressive Confabs in years past --- it's only appropriate I should send you back her way for her fish-out-of-water (Alaskan Salmon out of Prince William Sound?) overview, which includes not only a plastic moose and convincingly real cleavage, but also pink phalluses, Amy Goodman, Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Al Franken and my new BFF Lizz Winstead…not necessarily in order of importance…

And, and here's one photo Jeanne didn't include in her post for some reason --- featuring (from left) Alaskan blogger and radio talker Shannyn Moore, Truthout reporter/editor Jason Leopold, and Jeanne herself --- though I tweeted it as it happened late one night, titling it appropriately enough: "Three Sheets to The Rio"....
