Democrat Convention 1st Night All About Democrats

with 2 comments

Is it just me or was the first night of the Democrat Convention solely about Democrats and their issues? Talk about self-centered people living in a bubble, these guys were all talking about their issues to their people.  What about the rest of the country?

You know who would have liked a convention like this?  John McCain back when he was a POW.  I bet he would have loved even one balloon and a streamer let alone this enormous waste that is the Democrat National Convention.

I didn’t feel like driving the two hours and I really didn’t know where I’d watch it anyway, so I wound up watching the convention from my hotel room in Pueblo.   Still it is electrifying to be in Colorado for the convention.  I’m going to try to get up to Denver today, but a cab is outrageous.

Is it justme or did it strike anybody else as odd that all the Obamas were there in blue dresses.  It kind of reminded me of the blue suits that all the Chinese maoists used to wear in the 1960s and 1970s.  Is this outfit some kind of tie to Obama’s socialism?

Even more exciting was John McCain’s 13th appearance on the tonight show last night. That’s more than Doctor Phil or Lindsey Lohan.  I wish he had hammered Obama a little more on the celebrity charge, but hopefully he can do that on his upcoming Letterman appearance.

  1. Nate, were you drinking Bud Light with Lime last night? The little girl’s dress is purple, which is part red, part blue. In a family of Dumocrats, she seems to be an independent. Speaking of drinking, take a shot every time you hear the phrase “Wake Up America” and you’ll be drunk in no time.

  2. wait….. blue = communist??
    what the fuck?!
    news flash dumbass. blue is the color of the democratic party!
    you must be reeeeally desperate to start criticizing the colors they are wearing.

    and the key word in the Democratic National Convention is DEMOCRAT.
    what the fuck did you expect??
    the DEMOCRATS in the DEMOCRATIC national convention are going to talk about issues that are important to them!
    as will the republicans in the RNC.
    its one thing to disagree on the issues but its another to wildy criticize anything and everything the democrats do. they are not demons.
    and besides, what you said isn’t even true.
    i thought obama was quite ground-breaking in his speech when he apptempted to strike some middle ground on issues that republicans and democrats disagree on, such as abortion and gay rights.

    you should really be tolerant and stop alienating yourself from the other half of the country.
    its this kind of attitude that leads to hatred and lack of understanding.
    let’s try to strike some middle ground and recognize we’re all living in the same country.
