Archbishop Dolan prays at the RNC.

I guess an imam is scheduled for the DNC.

tell them, as Obama said to Clint, to do it to themselves, then delete them as friends, because in the end, they are not really your friends, are they.

Ann Romney looks a bit strained tonight, not feeling as well as usual. I am sorry for the long slog she endures, the pressure of her speech and Mitt’s speech.

He will NOT be perfect, but I now believe--very good!

Or, will they know how horrible the DNC speakers are likely to be, and choose not to air very much at all?

That's an intersting point. Being self-absorbed as they are (and full of hate), they may not realize how badly they come off to the rest of the country until the next day--like the Wellstone Memorial.

They’re so stunned at MSNBC all they can do is, in their childish way, knock everything. I had to change channels. I couldn’t wait for them to get to knocking the janitor who has to clean up the confetti.
