Public Broadcasting IS going to air the debate.... I thought I would be shut out as a non dish subscriber.
My @#@#$ insurance has a crappy dental allowance & all local dentists are* out of network*, so a routine cleaning & x rays are gonna be $201 out of MY pocket. Bastards.
My question: How many people DON'T have Dish or Cable because of medical expenses?
Therefore excluded from political debate access? The assumption is everyone can afford it.... or has it... right?

Dusty said...

I cried when Teddy took the stage.

I know many folks don't cotton to him, but I still do..fuck em if they don't like it. ;p

enigma4ever said...

I have always loved him...I am still sitting here crying..I need more Kleenex...I wrote below he was not supposed to be here=- Someone defied the Doctor's orders.....
( my kind of patient :-)


shit ...I really hope he makes it to Jan...

that was SOMETHING....WOW...

Kellybelle said...

The Lion of the Senate!! 10:30--I'm so sleepy. I want to see Michelle...

Dusty said...

I figured if he felt halfway decent he would always be there. :)

Good tribute to him and the legacy of the Kennedy's.

Mauigirl said...

Tears streaming down my face...got back from my errand just in time to see Teddy's whole speech. Fantastic. I'm so glad he was strong enough to be there.

Going to grab a bite to eat and will be back...will look for CSpan, we have on CNN.

enigma4ever said...

CSPAN ONE..has it livestream on TV..no pundits...

Michelle should be sometime between 10-10:30PM...

I have been bouncing between CNN, Cspan and MSNBC ( although....CSPAN has been better good people watching..........and no "Hillary talk")

GREAT Barack Video..Wow...

Kellybelle said...

TVOne is showing a lot too.

enigma4ever said...

OMG....more crappy music...

Okay Candy Someone is up there...I am running the Lilly Dog to pee....

Maria- he did look so so great...

enigma4ever said...

enigma4ever said...

MICHELLE Video is on now...WOW..

Mauigirl said...

Watching the video too. I can only get the Comcast cable station on the downstairs TV, the cable box is acting up. Luckily they are covering the convention! Once we go upstairs I can watch other stations on that TV.

Michelle's brother is introducing her now.

enigma4ever said...

Craig Robinson Michelle's little Brother is on....Bring on Michellle....

Bring on the 1st lady ;-)

( he is great....wow)

enigma4ever said...

( Hey Maui- we have been having trouble too...)
good to see you,...lots of good folks here ...

Mauigirl said...

Michelle is great - her story is very compelling - a real success story - someone who really worked to be where she is now, nothing given to her on a silver platter.

enigma4ever said...

She is rocking it...

Mauigirl said...

Yes, she's a great speaker and she is really inspirational!

enigma4ever said...

I saw her back this winter....thousands showed up on a Winterday downtown at a college...and she rocked it- I was so moved- she really is ONE of the BEST women speakers I have ever seen- and she and Barack really have a story - a REAL story...

If you can see her on Barack in Person...SEE them..They are amazing....

( and yeah...she signed my Audacity Book.....)

Mauigirl said...

This is the first time I've heard her speak except for a snippet here and there. She is reallly amazing. I would LOVE to see them in person. I hope he comes through New Jersey again and I will have an opportunity.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Michelle is such a strong woman. Damn!! and I like her dress.

But that's irrelevant to her strength.

She's like the opposite of the image Hillary was offering.

enigma4ever said...

Isn't she Something....CSPAN did have all of her speeches on archive during the Primary.....

OMG...she made them cry and jump out of their Seats they SEE HER as she is...

"Isn't she lovely"""

Mauigirl said...

Exactly. Hillary couldn't hold a candle to her.

It's funny, my husband was dubious as to why they were going to have her speak. Now that he saw and heard her, he understands! He was very impressed.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Aw...lookit their kids!! Blowing kissies to daddy!!

Mauigirl said...

Their kids are adorable.

enigma4ever said...

oh they are sooooo cute....and this is killing me...

enigma4ever said...

Okay....I have laughed and cried...and run out of kleenex....and WOW....
From Caroline on it was sooooooo amazing...What do you all think....

Mariamariacuchita said...

Chris Matthews hair mousse needs some repair,however...where is that breeze coming from?

Mauigirl said...

Comcast channel 8 is ending their coverage. Must go upstairs to switch channels...

Mariamariacuchita said...

and I have never seen Olbermann looking so Clark Kentish.

Kellybelle said...

Michelle so rocks!

Mariamariacuchita said...

Yeah, Michelle will rock their socks off...she is probably the most authentic American icon out there today.

Fran said...

They are rolling coverage starting @ 7pm here. A friend called when Ted spoke, so i will have to catch that on replay....
Caught Michelle. she did well.
I don't want to hear about generic hope... I'd like to hear specifics. It's not her job to hammer out the specifics, I'm just saying.

the kids talking at Dad on the giant screen part was... weird....

Why is Obama not in Denver???

enigma4ever said...

Keith is looking good...

She was SOOOOOO amazing..so beautiful...elegant and YET Real..telling her story... and did you see how many people were there crying ???

( well, I was too...)

Michellle is WHAT a 1st Lady should be....( NOT a Beer Baroness...)

Mariamariacuchita said...

Why Kansas?
"Obama will speak at the American Airlines overhaul base on Tuesday at 11:15 a.m. The event is not open to the public.

The overhaul base is expected to sustain severe cutbacks in its work for the coming months. The jobs of as many as 700 of the approximately 1,000 employees may be in jeopardy."


Sounds like he's courting the working man.

enigma4ever said...

Fran::
that is how they do it- the first 3 days everyone is supposed to set the Stage for the Candidate- and then he arrives...( I dont know why- but they always do it...)

I loved seeing the kids talk to him..it was so sweet ( I think they do it on the road that way too...so it was nice...things like that just choke me up...)

Michelle wrote this speech....it was what was needed....and I even saw women with Hillary hats on crying...

Mariamariacuchita said...

yeah, Keith always looks great...hot in that molded hair kind of squinting through-his-glasses way.

Fran said...

Still strange.

Public broadcasting is showing a Pelosi video-- Bleccccch.

Pelosi is the scurge of the dem party.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Pelosi should go to the dunking stool for a few hours at least.

Fran said...

The crowd is chanting Nancy Nancy Nancy???
Ugh

Fran said...

All democrats salute Hillary Clinton & her excellent campaign????

What planet does Nancy live on?

enigma4ever said...

Yes Maria I would gladly help with that effort...
Andrea Mitchell intervieweed Mayor Daley- and what a twit Mrs Greenspan is - Hillary every other word....yuck....wow...( she is still missing hill)

NOW the pundits will dissect her speech for hours...oye....

enigma4ever said...

Fran:::
I know the beginning was sooooo strange..and yes Nancy is soooo annoying...awful...

Fran said...

Nancy said "we helped rebuild teh Gulf Coast post katrina"?

What? Has she seen recent film???
IMproved fuel efficiency-- they passed a bill saying 13 years from now fuel efficiency will be addressed????????

Mariamariacuchita said...

yeah, my bedtime...keep the faith.

Can't stand watching the old men hairplugs any longer.

Christopher said...

The Ted Kennedy tribute was unbelievably moving and brought tears to my eyes.

He WILL be there when Obama is sworn in as the 44th president.

He WILL be there.

Michelle Obama's coming out speech was perfectly splendid. She hit all the right notes and she was fantastic.

What a starling contrast to Cindy "9 Homes" McCain or Pickles "Beard" Bush.

Mauigirl said...

Yeah, I'm gone too. We ended up switching to The Daily Show even though it's a repeat. (I had missed the beginning of this one so it was worth watching!)

Will catch you tomorrow for the next installment of the convention!

Mauigirl said...

Christopher, just caught your comment as I was leaving...I agree, Ted Kennedy WILL be there to see Obama sworn in.

Fran said...

Whew-- Pelosi is going offstage now-- Daidi Brooks dubbed it "A piece of pure rhetoric"

Thank you Ms. Obstruction of Justice-- get the hell out.

thepoetryman said...

Michelle is such a good public speaker, but I really wish they had set her loose! I thought her speech was very well crafted, with an emphasis on crafted. I wanted to see something more, I don't know, not "angry black woman", but fiery! Yes. More fiery. I felt the warmth and truth in her words, but I did not feel the heat...Some of it was allowed to jump over the rim, but I wanted, maybe my expectations we're too high for a Monday...? I was looking for Martin Luther King Jr. in a dress! Malcolm X in high heels!

Oh my God! I think I just blew a fuse in my head... Muse? Muse? Help...

enigma4ever said...

Fran...you made me laugh....( it gets better- the Teddy part is amazing..etc..

Gnite Maui and Maria..thank you so much for being here....

Big thank you for everything and being here folks....

Christopher,....
What you said is Soooooo true....I hope that he does make it to January...I really do...

enigma4ever said...

TPM:::
that is how she is - I have watched almost All of her speechs and seen her in person...She writes her OWN speechs- she does not let them craft her- remember this is the REAL womant that people in Iowa met last winter.....

That is HER- she is very gracious dignified and so eloquent...always..she is a real lady...a great FIRST lady...

enigma4ever said...

Keith just explained that Ken Burns made Teddy's video...wow...

Mariamariacuchita said...

One last parting shot at Pelosi....see what Salon is reporting at the DNC disruption by Codepink, and calling her "liar."
http://www.salon.com/politics/war_room/2008/08/25/pelosi/index.html

enigma4ever said...

thanks Maria- I will check it out 4sure....thanks...gnite lady..

enigma4ever said...

Michelle's speech is avaiable on podcast....I will check if teddy's is...

Thanks everybody...so much..

D.K. Raed said...

I DVR'd both MSNBC & CSPAN and have to say tomorrow I will only watch CSpan. Much as I love Keith & Rachel, watching them analyzing it instead of feeling like you are right on the convention floor made it feel small. The CSpan coverage was much more immediate. And of course, since I DVR, I can FFWD through dumbass "music" & filler.

Didja see earlier when Hardballs talked to the Pumas? Unbelievable! These are not dems, in fact one group 'fessed up there were repubs from UT there to make sure CO stays in the red electoral column.

Great comment thread here & below. I just read thru it all. Are you gonna do this everynight?

enigma4ever said...

DK:::
I saw ....and WOW....they really are hateful awful people....absolutely horrible...( See I had this theory all along..because I thought that THEY NEVER WERE OR ARE DEMS...THEY ARE AND WERE ALWAYS REPUGS..)

Am I going to do this every night...yup..shit I did 22 Dem Debates and yes, I did the repug Debates...AND I even did the Saddleback Forum ( which I think I deserve a reward....)

So there you have it...I lack sanity...will I do Bill and Hillary,.....I think we have to keep an EYE on them...I am rewatching MSNBC...
Thank god when Rachel and Eugene are there..on MSNBC.....whoa Tweety just corrected Pat about HOW it is NOT a Christian Dem Convention ( ouch...)

So I am having email troubles...I will use another address and write you...

Okay....

thepoetryman said...

I have heard her speak several times and I have always enjoyed her ability to speak so eloquently. I actually did enjoy the speech as night, but still wanted to hear a roar. Maybe I was too overloaded on caffeine to be a very good critic last night! :>)
