Running Commentary on 2nd Night of Dem. Convention. And a P.S.

1. James Carville: I’m sick of his lap dog sucking up to the Clintons. I’m sick of his bald head, his accent, his smarmy lips. He needs a job now, Clinton’s not going to be president… Go look for a job, James.

2. Terry McAuliffe: I just heard him say for the 3rd time this year that Hillary Clinton was going to give the speech of her lifetime tonight.

3. Tom Brokaw: He just quoted a scene from SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, referring to Obama’s quest for the Presidency, “you have to earn it.” Mr. Brokaw, Caroline Kennedy put you in your place last Sunday, even if her blouse was inside out! And if you don’t think Obama has been earning the presidency for the past 19 months, then you haven’t been paying attention.

4. Luke Russert: Glad to see him reporting about the youth vote. His is a reasoned voice, not yet tainted by political histrionics.

5. Hello — the Clintons DO NOT WANT Obama to win in November. That is the truth.

6. Damn Hillary. It is all about HER.

7. I think Obama lost the election tonight, not because of anything he has done or said, not because of anything he will do or say… I hope I’m wrong.

8. I like Governor Schweitzer.

The End of 2nd Night Commentary.

P.S.  My heart hurts, to tell the truth.  I felt the air leave the Convention floor in Denver tonight.  I have attended 2 Dem. Conventions, as I’ve written about here before.  Something is wrong in Denver.  Obama must win in November.  His win will transform the country and the world, something we’ve needed ever since Bush missed his chance on 9/11 — he didn’t even recognize the window of opportunity afforded him and our country after the attacks.  Obama did.  And he ran for President.  But he didn’t count on his own party turning against him.  A primary is a primary, then it’s over — that’s what he thought.  I’m not whining here for him, I’m pissed here for him.  He needs support.  I’ve done all I know to do…  Hillary gave every racist voter in the country an out tonight — just hang on 4 more years.  Trouble is, the country can’t wait any longer, 4 years is a long time.  Her and Bill’s ruse, along with daughter Chelsea, won’t matter one whit in 2012.  Like I said, 4 years is a long time because the past 8 years has been an eternity.
