Did anyone see Bush’s “speech” tonight? I understand it was kept to 8 minutes. They really don’t want him around, do they?
When I got home from Tuesday night chorus rehearsal they were showing a tribute to Reagan. How many years will it take for them to get past Reagan? I realize the Dems had a tribute to the Kennedys, but that’s because there was a Kennedy on the stage.
I watched Thompson with the sound off. He’s much better that way.
Looking at the conventioneers reminds me of the folks back home. All white.
Oo, Lieberman’s up. TV off.
Anyway, I’m going to break my own rule here and say something about the Palins and their pregnancies. Via Atrios, the National Enquirer is reporting that Sarah Palin was planning to marry Bristol off to her boyfriend right after the convention and then announce the pregnancy. But Bristol refused to go along with this plan, it says.
Has anyone asked Bristol if she wants to marry the kid she messed around with? Maybe she doesn’t. If so, that would tell me she has more sense than her whackjob mother. Who the hell outside of Arkansas marries off 17-year-olds these days, even if the girl is pregnant? They might as well pay for the wedding and divorce in one package deal. It would save both those children, and the baby, a lot of grief.
Right now I’m too tired to go through all the Palin family dramas that have turned up just today. The biggies: The Palin’s association with an extremist, anti-American secessionist movement; as governor, Palin slashed money for teen moms; just three months ago, Palin called the Iraq war a messianic affair in which the United States could do the will of the Lord.
Sarah Palin — the gift (to the Dems) that keeps on giving —
I’m beginning to think the “Eagleton Scenario” is possible. If … nay, when … Palin becomes too big a drag on the ticket, they could dump her and blame the evil liberal media and liberal bloggers for being mean.
Maybe we should lay off and encourage her to stay on the ticket.
