4:55 CT: From The Count OK. I'll say it. When the Democratic party says "we make ending poverty a national priority" That falls on deaf ears to me. The Democratic party which I am a proud member of doesn't do near enough to claim they make "ending poverty a national priority.
I can almost read the mind of a RWNJ watching this video. "Lose weight fat asses I think I'll re-listen to Rush"
3:57 PT: From Jonathan - Sandra Fluke will be a speaker tonight, along with First Lady Michelle Obama. The keynote speaker will be Julian Castro, the Mayor from San Antonio, Texas and the first time a Latino delivers the keynote address to the DNC.
5:04 CT: Count: Great speech from Cory Booker is so far the highlight of early day 1. Lot's of let Detroit go bankrupt.
Hear comes Harry Reid!...Slowly.
Harry Reid the first to mention teabaggers. If they won't stand up to Rush or Grover Norquist what would make you think they would stand up for you? Now he's going after Mitt's Taxes. SOLID!
4:40 PT: From Jonathan - In non-DNC converge news...I meant to post this on Saturday, but I forgot, so here it is now: 4 minutes of pitch-perfect, biting satire from Jon Stewart on Clint Eatwood's improvised speech/standup routine.
|The Daily Show with Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|RNC 2012 - The Road to Jeb Bush 2016 - A Fistful of Awesome|
8:56 CT From The Count: Deval Patrick with a powerful speech! The best line... "It's time for Democrats to grow a backbone and stand up for what we believe." Afuckingmen!
9:33 CT. From The Count: Julian Castro was fantastic. Up next is the first lady with the final speech of a strong first night. I am in the minority on this I thought Kal Penn was unfunny and unsuccessful. The only real #fail of the night.
10:11 CT: From The Count Very strong first night capped off with a great speech from the first lady. I'd give the entire night an A-. Great start,
