11:06 only one sentence is permitted on gay marriage: 'people can love who they love,' and variations. you can do better than euphemisms and stuff.
11:04 very, very good.
11:04 both parties tell exactly the same american-dream story, over and over.
10:48 the dems always frame it in terms of people who do what they're supposed to, play by the rules, do what they were told to do etc. that's the way they think about life, or about us.
10:47 i got my ph.d. in 1989 with about 60k in student loans. i've paid monthly ever since. i still owe 40.
10:46 plus she's just straight-up good.
10:34 speaking of african warrior queens, i definitely crush on michelle. put her in a tight fro, and i'd be groveling.
10:26 americans still love their mommies.
10:25 orioles tied with yankees for lead in al eastern division.
10:19 'everybody should get and stay in the middle class.' this is conceptually impossible.
10:16 this castro guy's ok. he's not absolutely inserting a grenade in me and pulling the pin, though.
10:15 i'll vote democratic, but i want a check every month.
10:13 my great great etc came with the pilgrims, and ever since my direct antecedent jemima sawtelle was captured by the indians (for real!) we've been victimized by afffirmative action programs for waves of yucky minorities.
10:11 julian castro's grandmother came from nothing.
10:23 orioles and yankees tied for al eastern division lead.
10:10 if i was in danger of fogetting the presiden'ts name, i'm good now.
10:09 there's something strange about being introduced by your identical twin.
10:07 'we seek a future of more opportunity, not a future of less opportunity' (o'malley). they've hired the scriptwriters from sesame street again. forward. not back. not not back, not not not back.
10:00 kind of a parade of future possible vice presidents. i just wish they were gigantic macy's balloons. o'malley's sleep-walking through everybody's speech.
9:51 patrick, among others, is going all libertarian and 'individual rights' on abortion and marriage. aww throw in marijuana, and then just keep going. everyone believes in some liberties. you can see why patrick has been a star; kind of rubio-esque.
9:46 orioles 12, blue jays 0
9:43 they are completely ready to nominate a woman. but the bench seems a little thin after hillary? napolitano is an impressive person. it'll be john edwards's turn, though.
9:37 they have to be psyched that they're not nominating mitt romney. not to mention john kerry. "now we're expecting a video on pay equity." man they're just trying to create disgruntled male loners.
9:34 barack's family is funky and obscure. he's such an alien!
9:20 i do like rahm's kick-assedness, though.
9:16 sibelius is a very dull speaker.
9:10 i'm not sure the merriest way to frame michelle's contribution is as a 'character witness.' that's when you've been convicted and they're moving on to the sentencing phase.
9:00 it's hard to deny that rich people know a lot about the way the economy works.
8:57 orioles 7, blue jays 0. rays 4, yankees 2.
8:11 the democratic convention looks like america, or like america will look when everybody is a unionized government employee. i'm afraid i can't help you with that. that's neither my job nor my problem. i don't make the rules. eventually, everyone will be an administrator in the dc public school system. then we'll all be in the kiddle mass.
7:54 anonymous should really concentrate on seizing control of the video system. retain absolute calm.
7:46 oh hell, more kennedys. what is he getting up to after the show, i wonder? ooph this one looks like a ginger jack.
7:40 ken salazar's parents came from nothing. ex nihilo, baby: the slogan of the moment. but while the ancestors of republicans made it by initiative and entrepreneurship and sheer ploxie and muck or by reading ayn rand novels, the ancestors of democrats made it because of new deal social safety-net programs.
7:34 i'm glad they included carter. there have been worse human beings. as long as i don't have to hear him on npr on another book tour.
7:13 humanizing people is boring. caninize them or something. woof!
7:07 and now...the electrifying harry reid.
6:40 i don't think anybody should, or really does, vote on the sheer question of whether they themselves are better off than they were four years ago. am i better off? hard to say, really; i'm in a completely different situation. if i was making more or less or i was unemployed, how confident would i be blaming or crediting the president of the united states as opposed to myself, my boss, or sheer luck? people are more likely to vote on a vague vibe of where the country's at than on whether their divorce settlement worked out.
6:30 looking at the crowd in charlotte, i have to say i'd be more comfortable hanging out with them than the reps. on the other hand their opinions would drive me apewire. white guys are under-represented. hey wait isn't this our country? remember when we ran everything? we did great! we can go back. republicans might re-think women's suffrage while they're at it.
5:06 one thing we can agree on. after all, we aren't red or blue, we're black white and brown, male and female. the middle class, if any, sucks and must be destroyed. what a pathetic little second-class class it is. and plus have you seen their lawns and suvs? they are destroying the planet. the only group worth dealing with at all is the second 1%, which i feel can be peeled off the 99.
5:02 wow debbie wasserman-schultz is really dolled up. no doubt she's trying to transcend mike huckabee's image of her. if huckabee's in the next room again, she might want to call security.
4:36 nevertheless, i'll blog through the dem fog this evening. forward!
12:25 my god now they're saying that michelle's job tonight is to humanize barack. i guess the basic gender split is that we dudes put our humanity in the hands of women, or place it in a blind trust with a woman as executrix.
