Red State ^ | 6 Sep 12 | Jeff Emanuel

Remember the media’s rush to immediately call out “lies” after last week’s Republican National Convention speeches? Compare the scrutiny (and repetition of Obama campaign tweets and emails) given last week with this tweet from ABC News’s Senior Washington Editor, posted during former president Bill Clinton’s DNC address:

this speech was a living, breathing organism. the crowd, the hall, the speech, one. #DNC2012

“this speech was a living, breathing organism. the crowd, the hall, the speech, one. #DNC2012 “

I read a lot of pre-WW2 history and study N. Korea as a hobby.

I could NOT tell you the difference between this and the stuff you see in any Nazi propaganda newsreel or N. Korean TV broadcast. Not one thing! I’m dead serious.

Other than the use of word orgasm....which just makes this even more gross.

I haven’t watched either of the conventions, but I’ve tried to catch some of the coverage of each.

As always, the allegiances are obvious.

They should amend that to “pipe” and a good pipe tobacco.

I’d recommend “Crown Royal” at Tinderbox.

That is just plain creepy. It is, however, a window into the mind of a true-believing collectivist. In science fiction it's called the Hive Mind.

It's also what that speaker really meant when she said we "belong to the government." Not as property exactly, more like identical and interchangeable units. Drones.

I know what has been seen cannot be unseen, but can someone try to cleanse our eyes?

He didn’t use the word “orgasm”, he used the word “organism”.

I think he misspelled the word "orgasm" as "organism". (He certainly appears to have had something running down his leg.)

No way I’d watch those people. They make my skin crawl.

The numbers I saw said they were lucky if they totaled 10 million viewers on all networks last night.

Fortunately, the Giants and Cowboys were a great diversion. :>)

Sometimes you hope for an orgasm, but what you get is an organism.

The Liberal/progressive world is a world where to lie, cheat, steal to advance their agenda, is laudable behavior.
Right after his tweet Rick was in the restroom standing under the hot air hand drier trying to dry the wet spot in his pants.

Give Chelsea a few years and that’s what I imagine she’ll look like... and that’s not a compliment.
