RNC: The word uninspired comes to mind...

So, I've had the RNC on the television since about seven and what a snoozer. It's like a really bad religious revivalist meeting. The place was still half empty at 8:30 and even now with all the big hitters, they couldn't fill the hall. The energy in the room wouldn't power a 40 watt light bulb.

It's painfully apparent that the speakers hearts just aren't in it. Must have seen the latest polls where Obama broke the 50% barrier. I thought Fred Thompson might fall asleep at the podium and Holy Joe begging the viewing public for votes is kind of pathetic. Oddly, I thought the best speech of the night was Bush. I think he's secretly pleased that McCain is tanking. Really, they should have just booked some televangelists and called it a day. They would have least been interesting.

And is it me, or does Cindy look like hell? She wasn't even wearing lipstick and looks ready to crumble in the next strong breeze. I have a feeling John is watching his craps shoot turn to crap and is raging behind closed doors, calling her that "c" word again -- after he called to cancel his Larry King interview tonight that was supposed to playing in clips at the convention.

Ah, it's over. I don't think I've seen an arena empty so quickly. The contrast to the DNC is so glaring you need sunglasses. I feel like I've just attended a funeral with really bad eulogists. [graphic via]

Best one sentence description of it all that I've seen or heard all night.

The RNC convention, specifically the "only-Republicans are-true-patriots" meme, left me angrier than hell. And Holy Joe, that traitor to his own party, was the most offensive of them all. He not only broke ranks, but broke his word when he attacked the Democratic candidate. Even David Gergen expressed shock at what he heard tonight: "How will the winner ever reunite the country after tonight," was his reaction. Last, but by no means least, Amy Goodman and her production team were beaten by the police and taken into custody today. This is turning into the ugliest convention since 1968.

Thanks aangus.

SC, the convention story is really about the arrests but the damn elite media aren't really covering it.

What gets me is how the media continue to dignify this depravity and act as though this was just another good old-fashioned convention with credible and honorable candidates seriously concerned with making this a better country -- and not a drooling, barking, yapping kennel full of demented Visigoths, enraged vandals and berserk Vikings bent on conquest and destruction.

That was annoying me last night too Fogg. Buchanan said if it works and they win, no one will care about the vetting, as if wining the race was more important that the qualifications of the candidates.

To paraphrase the bard, "First, let's kill all the pundits."
