citius, altius, fortius
The homemade signs give it the "grassroots" feel that the slick, obviously out of touch D's lack.
I think that the "homemade" signs are part of the whole, "we're just like you" schtick.
Mike3550 doesn't know it yet, but for Halloween, as punishment for posting "first," he'll be McCain and I'll be Palin. I am watching the RNC tonight because I need to do my mannerism/tone/vocab research.
Does the Texas delegation get their cute matching outfits cleaned every night, or are they stewing in two-day old flop sweat?No...wait, they're Republicans. Matching outfits for each night.
like who? i've seen your graphic design work, sir.
What we learned about Palin:Alaskan, plays basketball, beauty queen, fertile.
Mike's not mean enough to pull of McCain, and I hear he was never a POW. You can't fake that kind of experience.
She's telling the batshit "flew 8 hours after going into labor a month early" story as a positive. We are through the looking glass people.
McCain was a POW? Who knew?
Alex Castallenos said that this ain't compassionate conservatism. Well no fucking shit.
Didn't she take on a Republican governor?
Begala: Mittens = poor quality ground beef. Said he "embarrassed himself."
RNC scheduling conversation: "Does anyone really know Palin?" "Uh, well Hawaii is also not part of the continental U.S." "Bingo! I think there is a female Republican there." "Great, let's have her speak."
You could drill for oil in that backdrop.
Why are the conventioneers dressed like they're going to church?Oh... wait.
Governor ≠ PresidentMayor of Maui ≠ PresidentMayor of Wasawhat ≠ President
They really need to stop pointing out that Palin has more executive experience than Obama, Biden... or McCain.
Carl Bernstein: You don't pick Sarah Palin unless you know you're outside the margin or error for victory.
Oh, your guys are watching your non-CSPAN, so you are missing a very yeoman-like speech from the Governor of Hawaii. Right now she is going into how Obama and Biden have "zero" executive experience. The crowd seems to be chanting "zero." McCain has this same experience, yes?
Obama has never managed a multi-million dollar budget? Have they looked at his campaign budget?
Zero!! Zero!! Zero!!
And the CEO-presidency has worked out so well this last 8 years, no?
Like Kwame! Maybe he should run for President -- apparently he's more qualified than anyone else running...except Palin.
CPS: "You could drill for oil in that backdrop."Tee hee! Let's do it.
Awww, Bristol, Trig and Cindy.
How many Hawai'is can you fit in Alaska?
Delaware sucks ballz.It had to be said.
The Governor of Hawaii is making fun of small states. Damn.
Wow, I think that was just a "whipping the genitalia out" contest between AK and DE.
Nothing riding on Palin's shoulders here.
At least we'll get Giuliani soon...if nothing else, he'll be entertaining. The man has never been short of entertainment.
How many times repeating "Washington is Broken" do you think it's going to take to make people forget that the GOP has been running Washington?
Are there even four people in that hall that think Palin is going to reform Washington?Or that McCain picked her because he's putting the country first?
Um... yes. That's what's fucking scary.
"We've struck oil with Sarah" was on one of the homemade signs. That don't even make sense.
Place your bets on how many times you hear "9/11" uttered.
drink every time he says 9-11.
Drinking game for 9/11 comments? Or is that too easy?
good evening, 9-11!
John McCain" Everybody's #2 pick for the Republican nomination.
Longest, except for me...huh? You lost in the first week of the campaign, you joker!
We should do an over/under pool to see how long till he mentions he was involved in helping NYC survive 9/11
Shouldn't the campaign have felt "shorter" to Rudy?
i demand that hollywood celebrities decide the next election!
Backtrack to Dave3544:Using "Alaska = near Russia therefore Palin = foreign policy genius" argument to explain this cognitive problem:-McCain has a female vpc therefore McCain = total believer in women's abilities to do everything.-McCain = older, therefore he was in the "country first."Hope this logic serves us well through November.
USA!! USA!! USA!!
did the left-wing media elect W?
If you are Rudi Giuliani, you hire the person who has done you the most favors recently -- then you hire that person. Regardless of their criminal record.
I can't spell...
John McCain was a POW? Who knew?
How come I only get to know job history? How come I can't know about what the candidates believe? What what they say they would do on the job?Fuck it, I'd hire the POW. Without him, I wouldn't have a freaking desk.
hey, john mccain is a POW?
You'd think they'd stop mentioning "torture."
I thought he'd earned the right to plug every whore that would take a fin.
Zero!! zero!! zero!!
I guess you'd know about machine politics...
If he's not experienced, then how can he immerse himself in machine politics. I swore I just heard running a city is harder than being president? I'm confused...
When I was mayor of NYC **a million frickin' years ago**
Ha ha! Mayors don't vote. Nor do governors. Hilarious!
Wow, they've found all six people of color in that audience, haven't they?
you could drill for oil in that city!
count the under 40 folks in the audience too. not being age-ist, just a fun game.
there it is...9/11
Why is that a punch line? That it could only happen in America? Zero!! Zero!! Zero!!
Being homeless & not having a job ≠ crisisThat is the best statement of Compassionate Conservatism I have ever heard.
Never led anything except a campaign that won the Democratic nomination against the inevitable.
oh honey, the nyc drilling has commenced.http://nymag.com/news/intelligencer/49136/
no time for on-the-job training? sarah is screwed.
Berny Kerik? is that you?
Ruh roh, I guess Rudy didn't get the Hillary memo.
Just FYI, there'll be new thread for the Palin video/speech as soon as 9/11 is done.
did anyone else see that line about sarah palin getting the call at 3 am about the moose getting in the garbage can again? can't remember where i read that...
Nothing nature throws at him? Unless, of course, it's his birthday. He gets a birthday pass.
"hope is not strategy."right, "country first" is strategy.
And only briefly about specifics.
"Change is not a destination, just as hope is not a strategy."Not bad.
Bristol looks pissed.
Did you just see the guy yell "Oil!!!!" My god.
drill baby drill....priceless
"Hope is not a strategy" is a liberal blogger line about Bush.
he wants babies to drill? time to step up, labor movement.
Who bets Bristol's boyfriend started the chant?
I'm wondering how the offshore drilling focus plays in FL.
doc c: zing! we just said the same thing at casa fogle-sharif.
spill baby spill?pill baby pill?
Dr. C FTW!
A guy in the audience just yelled "Oil!" at the top of his lungs.Anyone else get the feeling that these people are drunk?Creating tariffs = hurting jobs, moving jobs elsewhere. Centuries of economic theory wrong.
Yeah, especially insulting to that Bin Laden guy they haven't caught.
dave3544, they aren't the only ones
New R theme song?
I must organize some grievances before Palin.When they give up on Iraq, they give up on Iraq.
osama bin laden won the war in iraq. sure, why not?
Uh... the surge is still unpopular.
Is Cindy McCain holding Twig or Branch or whatever the tiniest Palin's name is? Shameless.
Yeah, bring up the wiretapping...
Giuliani is the guy who makes a joke at a party and laughs at his joke before anyone else does.
Well, John, you're well on your way to losing both...
We are all Georgians!
For the record, McCain ripped off "We are all Georgians" from the French.
Um, is he running for something or setting up Palin?
Sweet! UN bashing!
no! not the vile French!
Actually, that was a pretty good bit about the SecCo.
Maybe you should've done that during your campaign, Rudy. You might've won.
cps: you're right.sarah, i'd get that VP introduction thing in writing.
Please let Sarah Palin be the future of the Republican Party.
ok, there we go...
gotta go eat.....have fun watching/snarking Palin
Holy shit, this is getting scary.
small town, god loving Rudy!
there really aren't words to express how much i hate this fucker.
She reduced government spending?
Jason,I don't think Obama ever said anything about the UN Security Council, just as he never said anything about Palin's hometwon not being cosmo enough.
Hey everybody, looks like I'm late to the party. I haven't had time to read all of the comments, so I'm not sure if y'all have heard: John McCain was a P.O.W.!
don't worry wobblie 10:24, this is the choir to whom they are preaching. this is the most revved up anyone will be watching this bunk.
He'll cut taxes and terror!
McCain was a POW? Who knew?
Rudy knows a thing or two about how to treat women, doesn't he?
rudy the feminist. yeah.
Boy, she can really bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan.
New thread is going up now.
