". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

DNC Thoughts

Thought #1: Watching the video that introduced Hillary Clinton at the DNC last night and then watching her deliver her speech, I have to say that I felt her pain. I thought all along that she was the better and more formidable candidate in the Democrat primary race, as well as the one who was most deserving of the nomination. If I were a Democrat, Hillary supporter or not, I think I would have found myself shaking my head with regret that my convention had nominated the wrong person. Instead, as a Republican, I am feeling relieved that they did so.

Thought #2: I am starting to wonder what kind of incompetents Barack Obama has running his campaign. Did you see this article about the plans being made for his acceptance speech tomorrow night? Seems to me that it only feeds the perception of Obama as being just a little too smitten with himself. But hey, I guess the Hillary supporters might appreciate the ancient Greek theme: it makes it seem more likely that some kind of deus ex machina might swoop down, pluck Obama off the stage, and drop Hillary into his place.

(Memo to Hillary supporters: sorry, but it ain't gonna happen. I'm afraid you're stuck with Narcissus. And you have my deepest sympathies.)

I think Obama should complete his temple with the appropriate... umm... er... women. After all, we need to be historically appropriate, no?

Now I'm hearing rumors that he's going to have a replica of Air Force One to climb into at the close of his speech (are you seeing visions of Jeff Probst, Survivor fans?)

That just seems to be too far-fetched, even for the Anointed One. I guess we'll see tonight (but I'll miss it live, because choir is starting!)

I'll be hoping I can squeeze my poor internet connection onto the "raw feed" stream... wish me luck.

The Dh says we should avail ourselves of adult beverages and heckle the man heavily. :)

That rumor about the airplane sure is weird, isn't it? It sounds so hokey.
