This is the first time a political convention has made me cry.

I totally just had my balls rocked off.

There. I found them!

In Republican HQs all over the country, McCain supporters are throwing chairs around as they just lost.

This man has just made me feel really justified. I've been complaining about this crap for ages and he comes along all like "Here, let me fix this, and would you like a hug, too?"


He's got a silver tongue, to be certain. I think most of the stuff he's saying is ahead of himself, giving the first four years will be mainly about cleaning up President Bush's mess. But since he has Biden, I think he has a good shot.

I think the Democrats are hardly any better or worse than the Republicans, but the latter aren't doing themselves any favors by nitpicking something like abortion when the economy is clearly most people's top concerns.

I tend to be very much an Independent, and don't like to choose my candidates by party, but I think Obama is generally much better than any candidate I usually see from either party. The Democrats in general just ran so many extraordinary candidates this year-- Clinton, Biden, and Edwards all really impressing me-- that it was really nice to see.

I usually agree more with the Republicans on fiscal issues, but more with the Democrats on social issues, and you're exactly right-- the fact that the Republicans are focusing on social issues when we are in the middle of a fiscal crisis really turns me off, especially since the economy really used to be their strong point. I don't feel like it is this time around.

I agree that I feel like he's making too many promises, but they're all good promises that I would like to see if he can get them done. If he just gets even a tenth of them done, I'd be thrilled.

Agreed, and that's really what polling has been showing this year, too. People don't give a shit about what people are doing in their bedrooms when they're worried about paying for their own children's medical bills and about holding on to their job.

"I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring."

"A nation of whiners? Tell that to the proud auto workers at a Michigan plant who, after they found out it was closing, kept showing up every day and working as hard as ever, because they knew there were people who counted on the brakes that they made. Tell that to the military families who shoulder their burdens silently as they watch their loved ones leave for their third or fourth or fifth tour of duty. These are not whiners. They work hard and give back and keep going without complaint. These are the Americans that I know."

I watched most of the convention tonight on PBS, and there was this one analyst who was being catty towards the other analysts. It was kind of harsh! He's the one who at the end of the speech said, "Yeah, it really wasn't that good."

I think it's time to switch over to "YES WE WILL!"

Or, in light of McCain's dubious VP choice, "WE ALREADY HAVE"


ok, I did. I cried. If he can come through with even a small portion of what he's talking about, I'd be thrilled.

Oh heck, even if he doesn't, at least I won't be EMBARRASSED anymore.
