Democratic National Convention Day 1.
Well it's about to start. I watch the convention on CSPAN which I prefer over the cable news networks. I mean if I gave a shit what Black Jack Billy Bennett and Ed Gillespie thought I would watch the Republican National Convention.
This week I'll miss not being able to post on off topic.
I'll check in periodically and leave comments.
PLEASE feel free to come by and tell me what you think of what you're seeing.
5:36: Edit. so far BLAH. But that is to be expected. McHale should have worked the word women in a little bit more.
Oh and Mayor Hickenlooper I am sure you're a great guy but public speaking is not your thing.
7:52 Edit: Great speech from Jesse Jackson Sr. The first great speech of the night. Things were really kinda...Blah until then. I thought the town hall thing was kinda..cheesy to be honest with you.
8:01 Edit: I am sure this song is saying going to have a funky good time. But it sounds like gonna have a fucking good time. Either way it's all good.
8:20 Edit: Sexist Comment alert* Caroline Kennedy looks damn good for 50.
8:34 Edit: Ted Kennedy still kicking ass.
8:42 Edit. Outstanding moment! Can't wait to see the Conservatives spin that. Well yes I can. No wonder Conservatives hate Ted Kennedy. They despise greatness. That fired me up.
9:05 Edit: God bless Jim Leach for speaking at the convention and supporting Obama but I now know who voiced Kermit the Frog.
9:26 Edit: Good but unexciting speeches from Leach and McCaskill.
9:40 Edit: Republicans are really really good at dehumanizing their opponents wives but I really really like Michelle Obama.
Let me just say I turned on CNN after the convention was over and was reminded why I watch C-SPAN. David Gergen says " I thought Michelle Obama saved the day of the Democrats blah blah blah". With all due respect David...fuck you and the MSM.
Honestly I didn't think this was a great opening night of the convention until Ted Kennedy made his speech. After that it was very good evening. Leach and McCaskill were fine and Michelle Obama was great. I give night one a solid B.
