Atwater Village Mentioned on The Daily Show

THE MAY 6 EPISODE of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart had a funny piece about the very real Pollie Awards, the "Oscars of political consulting," taking place at the very fictitious Atwater Village Convention Center.

(Hear the announcer say it around the 2:10 mark in this video.)

In truth, the Pollies were held in Santa Monica. Was the made-up AVCC a mistake? Or some kind of inside joke? No matter, this Newbie appreciated it.

Maybe it's a reference to Lee Atwater?

That came to me in a dream last night, by the way.
