convention coverage

Notes from the RNC….I’m going to try really hard to limit most of my comments to substantive aspects of the Republican Convention, really I am. But these roving announcer women are really freaking me out and I have to wonder if they remind anyone else of the spokesmodel contestants from “Star Search” (particularly that last woman in Wisconsin…) Also, I can’t sit still while the Republicans appropriate my fight song for an incredibly lame “tribute” to Gerald Ford. Mr. Ford, I know you didn’t even serve a full term, but I’d demand a do-over on that tribute–a thirty-second slide show set to the “Victors” is kind of embarrassing for a former president.

We now return to regularly scheduled substantive analysis and commentary.
