    Less than impressed with the process so far. Had Bush "beamed in", then the speeches by Thompson and Joe Lieberman (which I didn't find compelling) and no substance whatsoever about the importance of the economy.

    Perhaps with upcoming speeches by Romney and others we will get a little more information...and the speech by this Palin lady. It should be an interesting night.

    A conservative friend and co-worker of mine calls these (the DNC and the RNC) infomercials. He prefers not to watch them since they're typically one-sided. The DNC was enough for me to watch. If there are any compelling speeches given by folks at the RNC, I expect that they'll be reported on here and maybe I'll watch them. Otherwise, not much interest.

    So far what I've heard from them are the same arguments that have been spewed for months. Senators don't know how to lead or govern. Senators don't know how to legislate or understand foreign policy. Senators don't know how to run a budget. Senators should not be President, but a 2 year Governor who runs a state with a population a little larger than my city is a good fit for VP. Well, then so is my mayor.

    auryn - right wingers dont care about that stuff..(policy) they want someone anti gay, anti womens choice and who they can sit with and have a beer while they hunt in a deer blind. i have a family of them and they will admit to that. that is why carl rove orchestrates all this...the W image of the trucks, ranch, hunting...and now Palin. they are just selling an image.

    This is really my first time paying attention to politics (grew up a Jehovah's Witness) I am still figuring out what's what and who's who. Immensely enjoyed the DNC.

    But, with the public opinion of Bush being so low. Why would they even want him to speak on behalf of the Republican Party? You would think they would try and shine a light as far away from that douche bag as possible.

    Thoughts?

    Simply put, you can't not let the leader of your party speak.

    I recently heard a comedian state the following: When you go into a bar, look around. Do you see a President anywhere? icon_lol.gif

    James Dobson will, no doubt, cream his pants when she's done.

    Dobson WON'T cream his pants! That would be a waste of the natural seeds of life, and therefore a sin against families, and against having as many kids as your minivan can hold!!!! Remember, sperm is ONLY meant to go inside a woman's womb, and allowed to grow into life while the woman remains barefoot and gets her right-wing, Hooters-eating, trophy-hunting, Talladega-Nights-watching, cop-loving, McCain-voting redneck husband a beer while washing his truck and home-schooling the other six kids they've already brought into this world where there's no overpopulation or global warming.

    Who knows, maybe much of America will cream their pants when she's done. It's definitely going to be a highly-anticipated and heavily watched speech. The pressure is definitely on her to deliver -- I hope she does.

    I was about to eat my lunch.... I'll make sure and watch the "right winger" when I'm not going to throw up. I doubt if many will "cream their pants".
    yuck

    Well, Chris, you should lean up quite nicely over the next 4 years icon_lol.gif




    P.S. Just to clarify -- NOT that you need to lean up, sexy man

    He already has. I can't find the video, but here's a link to an article on the subject:

    This is an image of a gay republican at the convention. Apparently, the Repug party felt that the gays didn't deserve name tags, so they got "kick me" post its instead. The gay republicans were just happy to have anything at all.

    I stopped watching last night when Laura Bush made reference to a more conservative Supreme Court. I didn't want to put a damper on the rest of my evening

    She's a former beauty queen, I expect her to do well (at telling us how she wants world peace for puppies and moose burgers for all. It'll be a veritable Kumbaya moment.) icon_lol.gif

    As for a drinking game, we should take a drink everytime someone looks at her ass.

    1969er,
    I thought Rudy 9iu11ani wasn't speaking... I guess it was just for last night.
