No Balloons, Just Clowns

Posted on 09/06/2012 8:54:26 PM PDT by smoothsailing

I've been watching these conventions since the 1960's. I have never seen anything quite this pathetic. When the best speaker of the entire tedious circus turns out to be Joe Biden, well, it's time to pull down the tent and and free the animals, the freak show is over.

I thought Barry had a look of desperation in his eyes.

Barak would have been better biting the head off a

Perfectly stated.

I don't want to get complacent, but everything I'm seeing is telling me that he's done and his party is totally screwed.

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.

When zero came out last night to bathe in x42's crowd ... I knew it is over.

I think we should be wary and prepared for trouble soon.

The occupiers were in town and they may be scruffy kids, but Bill Ayers used to be a scruffy kid too ... and he tried to murder cops.

I totally agree. But they won't go quietly, and this could get far nastier than anything we've see yet.

I pray for our country.

That was an act of complete desperation, the campaign's internal polling must be far worse than anything we're seeing. I'm delighted! :)

rats let me down again. was only trying to help.

How about fuming laboratory reagent grade fail that requires goggles, a rubber apron, and a hazmat sticker when shipped.

I’m with you. Remember when GW Bush finally got into the White House and the Clinton and Gore team trashed the offices and took the W’s of the keyboards and stupid stuff like that? This crowd seems more dangerous and I think they will stop at nothing to remain. They took GOD out what the heck I am in shock and very sad.
I am praying for our country too!

I can’t say I have watched the conventions since the 60’s. I was old enough to, but really didn’t get interested until the 70’s.

I think the Dems have forgotten there is an alternate media and not everything they say will be taken at face value any longer. The MSM will still carry their water..but at risk of losing ratings they might bail.

The unimformed base voter will stay on board.

If I were the Dems...and the Pubs..I would drop these dog and pony shows like a hot potato. They are very expensive and nobody really watches. (I watched very little of either and I am a political junkie.) These people are over exposed on everyday tv and radio. The conventions are outdated and give the media on both sides areas to attack.

I was hoping they would fill the rafters with 20,000 Monica Lewinsky purses. Imagine the joy of the crowd as those came falling down!

And this man in our President. I actually felt sorry for this guy.He didn't have a thing to hang his hat on, and yet was supposed to bring hope and encouragement to this convention. I think I want my money back

I was mad as heck at the time about that. Looking back now, it seems almost harmless compared to how low the dems have continued to stoop since.

He did, and having Biden out there to plead for white & Catholic votes shouldn’t save him.

There was something different about him. Someone said to me (I don’t endorse this view or have an opinion on way or the other on it) that he saw signs that Barry had been smoking pot before the speech.

There was definitely something different about him.

I refused to watch or listen to the pathetic show but after reading your succinct account I think I should have just for the entertainment. :-)

Speaking of balloons, I saw something the other day that any convention that had problems with their balloon drop lost the ekection. HMMMMMMMMMM... None at all must mean 0 is going to lose BIG TIME.
