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.

I know when they are so riled, all is well in my world.

A lib friend sent me the NY Slimes hit piece on "fact checking" Ryan's speech.

I sent her the Hot Air "fact checking the fact checkers" post that completely refuted what the NYSlimes article said.

Some on the left are already trying to play up the “joke about rising oceans” while people are being displaced in LA due to RAIN. They will latch onto anything it seems.

Meanwhile, in the Fourth Reich (PMSNBC), Larry O’Donnell is trashing Clint Eastwood.

Whoa—as Boehner bangs the gavel adjourning the RNC, the giant debt clock stops, calculating the amount of debt accumulated by Obama’s policies since the beginning of the convention: 8.5 billion dollars in three days.

Does the phrase “flyover country” ring a bell? I’ve heard it from too many liberals who have NO idea what America is about.

I pray that our nation will be saved from this living hell we are in.

God bless and good night.

Brokaw said the father tried to moderate the party and Mitt is much more conservative. I think he used the work extreme somewhere in there. Has he ever used the word extreme when referring to the RATS. Will he at their convention? No.

And Andrea Mitchell is just an old partisan hag with major facelift who is out to lunch. She is no newsperson. She is a RAT and doesn’t even try to hide it. Journalist, my butt.

I hear about 15 seconds of Brokaw and Co., shut them down. Reminds me of the 1980’s. What the press tried to claim Reagan said was totally different from what I heard Reagan say from my ears. They’re totally at it again.
