I might actually watch it tonight. I am apparently missing some funny programming.

Everybody loves to watch dissaster unfold. I have apparently been missing the train wreck.

LOL! Thought you would.

I was quoting Yeats on Rush thread (lol)

What a perfect storm of a DNC/Obama mess.

...the DNC introduced a new Orwellian slogan: "Government is the only thing that we all belong to."... We're in different churches, different clubs, but we're together as a part of our city or our county or our state. And our nation."...

Government is the only thing that we all belong to? What's next, we'll meet in cells of three until somebody takes us to Room 101 and straps on the rat cage?

Sickoflibs, can you ping your list to this? The guy knows what he's talking about... Maybe someone can get a John Kass ping list... Great post.

When the convention cam panned over the delegates-—it looked like Team Obama was forced to give free tickets to the homeless, and cleaned out the insane asylums, in order to get a quorum.

Watta ratty looking bunch——looking like they had no clue about what was going on........acting weird.....clapping at nothing.

Just a few weeks ago, American small-business owners were punched in the gut by Obama's "You didn't build that" comment, reminding them that the feds had a hand in their success and on their throats. And now comes the "Government is the only thing that we all belong to" line, which reminds everyone where America seems to be going.

More government, and more belonging.

Ouch.

Sadly no. The Dems have presented their case better than we did ours, and their optics, e.g. excitement, has also been better.

“Things Get a Little Foggy for Democrats in Charlotte”

OK. I’ll bite. Was it from the pesticide foggers?

Obama struck out tonight, IMHO. He sounded desperate at times and seemed to acknowledge the possibility of defeat.

This was not a half time speech guaranteed to rally the team.

Is there anything worse then an Epic Fail? We have to come up with a whole new measurement of FAIL for the 2012 Democrat National Convention

I mean rock-hard fail. Dehydrated-rock-hard fail. Fail so failing that it goes way beyond the fail we know into a whole different dimension of fail.

The 2012 DNC is trans-fail failure. Meta-failure. Failure collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Fail gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity fail. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury fail.

The 2012 DNC emits more fail in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar fail. Nothing in our universe can really be this much a failure.

Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of fail. Some pure essence of a fail so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know.

The tattered remnants of the DEM convention bear all the earmarks of a Mc Govern or Mondale election debacle. Looks like Massachusetts is ready to put Ohaha over the top to historic defeat---ROTFLOL.

==============================================

Amazing that Team Ohaha still thinks fang-toothed snarling Michelle is a campaign asset----and did you notice the Team put the kibosh to any media comments on Moochelle's attire----an admission that America is sick of her and her clothes-obsession.

================================================

BTW, the NYT developed a severe case of editoial constipation when one nutsy cuckoo op-ed piece reported the rumor that Mitt Romney eats only the tops of breakfast muffins---apparently this makes him unfit to lead, according to the NYT.

That nugget of political perception was weird enough---but another Times writer claims Paul Ryan is the new "sex object" of Republicans.

I guess "sex expert" Sandra Fluck was consulted about that claim.

LOL.

I read that schlock!

It was an unsolicited editorial by some would-be writer or Ford Foundation intern. It was eye-poppingly stupid. I guess the NYTs has forgotten the New York City trend a few years ago whereby bakeries were only selling muffin tops.

I wonder if Mother Jones is going to run an editorial on the horrors of Dunkin’ Donuts selling donut holes...

And I'd bet that the nutsy New York cuckoo who wrote that op-ed cuts the crust off their bread when making a sandwich, and then cuts them into little triangles. And that the bread is naturally whole wheat, not that icky white bread the little people buy.
