Democratic National Convention - Night 1

Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is speaking about Ted Kennedy. It's really not appropriate to criticize a man who's so gravely ill, but the private Ted Kennedy she's describing is not the man that's Ted Kennedy's presented to the world.

The tribute was unbearable with John Kerry's voice in it.

Ted Kennedy comes on stage. Everyone's crying. I wonder if they cried like this for Mary Jo Kopeckne.

I'm afraid Kennedy is really muffing the ends of his sentences again.

He says Americans will be committed to Obama's cause. I thought he just said he didn't want Americans to be committed to a mistake?

Congressman Wexler is now the floor speaking to Hannity. Wexler. I remember him.

Karl Rove is up next on Hannity and Colmes. I so love Karl.

It's 10:03pm. Michelle Obama is up soon.

The Fox News folks are doing their best to fill the time until Michelle shows up with all kinds of analysis that I find to be completely meaningless.

Ugh. We still have 15 minutes until Mrs. O speaks.

Ok, Michelle's mom is now narrating a video about her.

She thought the name Barack Obama was weird. Yeah.

Compassion? She hasn't presented herself as being very compassionate.

At the end of the video, the crowd reaction wasn't as enthusiastic as I expected.

Michelle's brother seems like a very nice man and I'm sure he's a talented basketball coach, but he's murder to listen to.

There's Michelle. Is it me or does the crowd just not seem that jazzed?

Change! Take a drink.

Michelle is beautiful. She's articulate. But she's not inspiring. At least she's not Teresa Heinz Kerry. Oh, pardon me, Teresa Heinz.

She just tried to throw a bone to Hillary and her 18 million voters.

She says she loves this country, and the crowd goes...somewhat wild.

Caroline Kennedy said Ted Kennedy helped bring an end to Apartheid. Michelle Obama says Obama helped set up after school programs so kids could be safe, that he worked from block to block. Hmmm. Sorry, not presidential material.

Oh my goodness this is all such pap. Bill Kristol is right. The speech was very generic. She didn't say that much that was all that interesting.

Quote of the night from James Carville: "If this party has a message, it did a hell of a job hiding it." Ouch!!

When writing articles about Obama's VP, remember, Obama's health is not the only way he could die in office. He stands a very good chance of assassination.

Not picking Clinton for his VP probably saved his life. I mean really, given her hand at politics you think he wouldn't be sleeping with one eye open waiting for her to strike?

That is a true GUMP BUMP she is sporting and nothing can change that.

She may be well spoken, but she is certainly NOT attractive.

Pardon us DICK Finch, shouldn't you be breathlessly watching Mrs. Messiah?

I was kinda hoping she'd explain the $200K raise she got two months before her husband steered a $1M earmark to her employer. Man, she must be one HELL of an employee.

Not tonight? Maybe next time.

You fucking so called "people" make me sick.

"-2 out of 6 votes cast" That means so far, 4 casted positive votes.

Republicans are less than human creatures. Poor people that vote for John McCain and his 10 houses as if he could ever give a fuck about you. I guess he hates gays just like you do. There's a starting point.

McCain doesn't hate gays any more than you hate Republicans. I'm sure you feel good about that, but you shouldn't.

I couldn't watch the convention last night. I had to clean the baseboards.

Who said anything about Republicans or gays for that matter?

Reality is that there are White supremiscy and NAZI types out there who will try to kill Obama because he is black. Period. Deal with it. That is what I was saying, deal with reality, and reality is that Obama is a target.

There are nutcases on all sides of the political spectrum. No need to make the race card so prominent. There are plenty of sickos who would like to off the candidate they don't like for reasons other than race. It doesn't reveal your brilliance, Mycroft, but your lack of a spell checker and excess of rude impropriety.

I'm still recovering from watching billions of American dollars spent by corrupt communists in a showy facade of decadence and self-importance [the Olympics in China]. I've had my fill and don't need any more from Denver [the DNC in Denver]. Thanks for reminding me about my baseboards! I'll get right to it tonight.

When the article specifically mentions White supremistists and a NAZI ring on one of the 4 arrested, Well that is just reporting the facts. And it doesn't take much to think that a White Supremitist is after the candidate because he is black.

Rude impropriety? Who is calling names, and who is reporting facts here.

Seems to me, that you are the one who is being rude.

How would that work anyway? If Obama was assassinated at the convention, would they simply nominate Hillary? Is anyone keeping an eye on the Clintonistas this week?

Because Kerry and his (how many houses was it, five I believe?) would have cared much more, eh?

You fucking so called "people" make me sick.

Perhaps if you take the collective DNC urinary appendage out of your mouths you might feel better.

"-2 out of 6 votes cast" That means so far, 4 casted positive votes.

Fail maths much? You got TWO positive votes:
1: -1
2: +1
3: -1
4: +1
5: -1
6: -1

(-1+1)+(-1+1)+(-1-1)=
(0)+(0)+(-2)=-2

A 4th grader could solve this problem, Einstein.

And now your score is -12 out of 17 casted votes. Oh, excuse me, now -13 with my negative vote.

James Cloninger:

Or if that was too hard to follow, solve for x:

x = total of positive votes
4 = -2 + x
4 - 2 = x
2 = x

Did that complicated algebra make your head explode? Please clean up your mess.
