Half-Watching-The-Convention Blogging

Random thoughts as they occur to me about Day 1 of the DNC convention:

*  I’m just (half)watching the live stream.  Can’t stand the commenters and pundits on CNN and MSNBC.

*  Love the band.  Doing lots of Earth Wind & Fire

*  Nancy Pelosi really is a poor speaker.  Plastic, stumbling, maudlin.

*  Wow.  They really gave the shaft to Carter.  They give him a tribute, and he’s not speaking????

*  I like Jesse Jackson Jr. better than I like his dad.

*  The CNN feed likes to show shots of white people who can’t dance.

*  The Teddy Kennedy moment certainly paled in comparison to the Bobby Kennedy moment (in 1964).  I wasn’t very impressed, but the man is sick….
