Correspondent Jessica Yellin (CNN) - An hour after Mitt Romney stepped off of his party's convention stage, crowned as the Republican presidential nominee, organizers of the Democratic convention announced several speakers who will appear onstage in Charlotte, North Carolina next week.

The partial lineup released Friday highlights Democratic women, Latinos, African-Americans, and congressional leaders.

The convention speaker list includes Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts; Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley; Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former White House Chief of Staff; and former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who is running for a U.S. Senate seat.

Anyone else see a disconnect between these two paragraphs?

27 August 2012
Morning Quote: Gov. Martin O’Malley
On Sunday, Maryland’s Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley accused Romney of race baiting during an interview on State of the Union (CNN) when asked if “Mitt Romney was trying to appeal to white voters” :
“When you have a party that says coded things, that makes totally false ads up, falsely saying the president is trying to undo welfare reform, I think you’re going to see a lot of heavily and not-so-subtly coded messages from the Romney-Ryan campaign.”

What a bunch of losers, all. They are angry people, and not inspiring at all, IMHO.

I am predicting that their commentaries will all be on the angry side and will leave the listener feeling even more like a victim of America rather than being appreciative of their citizenship in the greatest country on earth.

I doubt God’d name will be mentioned in any sort of dignified and sincere way at all.

It will be really interesting to see the final benediction prayer by Cardinal Dolan. Will the audience of LGBT delegates sit down, will they turn away, will they yell and scream? That will be a riveting sight to behold.

I hope Dolan brings lots of holy water to exorcize the convention center after the event closes.

Maybe they'll have a "kiss-in" or throw condoms like they did at St. Patrick's Cathedral, or turn their backs on him like they used to do to Cardinal O'Connor.

Where’s Clinton? I thought he was their keynote speaker. You know...the fellow (with the record for raping, groping and using women - and lying under oath) who best demonstrates how the Democrats respect females.

Ugh. What a gang of losers. Really? Rahm Emanuel? I’m surprised he’ll even be able to leave his office with all the bodies stacked up outside his door. The rest of these tools are nobodies. Barabra Lee? I’ve NEVER heard of this woman. The only people I have heard except for Rahm are Corey Booker (who shouldn’t debase himself), Nancy Piglosi and of course, stone wall LIAR Reid. I though WaWa Warren was going to attend as well, or is she too embarrassing? O’Reilly was right when he suggested they rain condoms down after Sandra Fluke Me Hard. This thing is going to be a snoozefest sprinkled with hate and fear-mongering.

Watching Skeletor Colmes lie on FOX right now. God, I hate watermelon liberals.

By Pete Kasperowicz, The Hill

A Democratic lawmaker said Wednesday on the House floor that Republican legislators around the country are purposefully trying to deny blacks the right to vote by pushing for voter identification laws.

“It’s no coincidence that a disproportionate number of these affected voters come from communities of color as well as the poor, the elderly and students,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“Having been born and raised in Texas, this certainly looks like a poll tax to me, which those of us remember as a way to prevent African Americans from voting. These voter ID laws have a partisan agenda: seeking to disenfranchise and deny specific populations of voters before they have the opportunity to elect their representatives in government.”

She also said the laws are meant to change election outcomes by “turning the clock back to the days of Jim Crow.”

Actually, that one ALMOST makes sense, but in the way she intended.

If the Federales didn’t seize so much of our income, and redistribute it, or threaten to regulate our freedom out existence, we could safely ignore it most of the time. And, prior to say 1914 (when the Income Tax Amendment was approved) you pretty COULD ignore it. Not any more...
