So I'm watching the Democratic National Convention today while attempting to
get some coding work finished. I've decided that CNN has pretty decent coverage.
I liked their story on the people that stand behind the newscasters and attempt
to get on the camera, very funny. What made it even funnier was that after they
did that bit, one of the dorks they pointed out was behind the next newscaster,
acting like an idiot. I wonder if he knew that CNN totally crushed him a few
seconds before that?
While I was watching the show, some old guy came to my door (pretty damn
brave of him since I have a sign that says "If I don't know you you'll be met
with a shotgun" on the door). He was a Democrat looking for donations. I had a
short talk with him, explaining that I was unemployed, hated the SOB in power
now, and how I run a few websites that I have spent thousands on running for the
last few months. A bit later, a friend of mine called to remind me about her
invitation to dinner tomorrow. I started to explain about the DNC and the old
guy, she interrupted with "I don't want to talk politics." This is why MonkeyBoy
still has supporters; people supporting this dimwit liar refuse to let any
disparaging word enter their head. Republicans are really stubborn, stupid,
simple people. Hell, I listen to Rush almost every day, I still don't get why
people think he's so great, he's the same as the rest, all into his drug-addled
self spewing lies and blindly following one of history's worst leaders into
About the speeches today... Al Sharpton went way off subject and
started to preach. It was amusing to watch since the rest of the Kerry group
must have been writhing with his attacks on MonkeyBoy. Edwards is a great
speaker, and should do a lot to bring some personality to this group.
Personally, I think that the Democrats should have been attacking the Reign of
Terror, instead of attempting to play this "Oh, let's play nice" type campaign.
Hell, MonkeyBoy and his cronies will be attacking like rabid pit-bulls during
their convention. Oh well, well have to wait and see.
