I actually was going to post a funny bit from political radar...I was perusing past posts (led there by atrios also) and came across this:
ABC News' Jennifer Duck reports: During the heated 2008 presidential race, President Bush has never attacked Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., by name, and on Friday, Press Secretary Dana Perino told reporters the president has no plans to attack the Democratic presidential nominee when he addresses the Republican National Convention on Monday.

“Do not expect the speech to define the president's legacy. This is not an opportunity to recap accomplishments of the past seven and a half years. It will not serve as a farewell to the American people, and it certainly will not attack Barack Obama," Perino said.

One reporter asked "why not" and Perino replied with a laugh, "Because he's got class.”

Yes the man won't mention his awesome legacy, the kick ass job he's done the past 7 and 1/2 years, and won't be his farewell...too bad, would have been a great speech. What is he going to talk about?
can't wait for the OG liveblog of the Convention...
