I will be bouncing between CSPAN and MSNBC ( once our Clark Kent Keith arrives ;-)

( Sorry I can not deal with CNN - Wolf and Mapboy really are too much...and the Hillary Love is a bit overwhelming..)

Bradda said...

Good luck Enigma! I will try to come around to say hi now and then, but I am going to be away for awhile. Don't know if I'll return. i just wanted to say thanks for all the comments and links. Your a true patriot. Keep up the good fight for me! Peace...

enigma4ever said...

Hey Bradda...Hugs to you friend...I will be here...
I keep storming the Castle for All of us...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So John Conyers Gave a speech about Tubbs Jones- BUT he talked about HOW hundreds testified in Columbus about The Voting Debacle of 2004, when SO MANY VOTES were not counted Properly in Ohio..he spoke with such Anger and Fierce Concern...I was struck that we have alot of unresolved Problems and pain from the last two elections...wow...( I think I knew that really well- but I do know that we don't talk about it anymore do we ???)

Okay The Speakers from the Black Caucus and then
Kucinich should be up...

enigma4ever said...

OOOOpppps Schedule is off....
6:30 PM

Senator LEAHY.....wow YAY !!!!!!
( I lived in Vermont many many years ago...he was one of the First people I voted for ( him and Bernie Sanders)...he rocks...BTW if you have not seen the Dark Knight yet- he has a cameo- a Speaking Role- very exciting....okay he is rocking it....

Okay now Chris Van Hollen...

enigma4ever said...

Cecile Richards Prez of Planned Parenthood....( Yes,she is Ann Richards Daughter...)

So 125 Times McCain voted against Women issues..did not know that...( someone should tell those Hill people that)

6:49 PM
DENNIS KUCINICH FINALLY !!!!! He is stoked....FIRED up....

enigma4ever said...

KUCINICH IS FUCKING ON FIRE HE HAS THE WHOLE PLACE ON THEIR FEET HE IS JUMPING AROUND AND PEOPLE ARE YELLING BACK TO HIM...WOW...

( shoot I could have listened to him for another hour...damn)

Christopher said...

I admire you. I really do.

Tonight's hootenanny, starring Chelsea and Hillary, have about as much interest to me as a trip to the dentist.

Needless to say, we're not watching the convention tonight or tomorrow night.

However, hungry horses couldn't keep me from watching Thursday night.

enigma4ever said...

7PM:::
Okay over at MSNBC.....David Gregory....says that Hill is still finetuning the Speech ( oh dear....) Keith is on...
okay will surf back in forth...

enigma4ever said...

Do tune in to MSNBC the SIGNS behind Gregory are great...the IMPEACH BUSH SIGNS with skulls...

enigma4ever said...

Well Chris..
I have had some awful Root Canals...( atleast I was offered novaine and laughing gas for those !!!) oh well....It will be fine- I got pepsi and chips and my critters- 6-6 said FUCKIT ( to listening to the Clinton show...I guess he is not into "catharsis")...

SO ....Rendall is blathering ON AND ON....people are talking through his speech...

( I might go to Youtube and take a break for 15 minutes...I will be back..)

Bradda said...

Kucinich is my hero...

enigma4ever said...

He rocks...he was so good tonight..

Okay....Mrs Greenspan is interviewing people and she is still forlorn over Hillary- it is nauseating...

I am here at MSNBC...lordy...could they pander more to OH MY poor hillary...

( Andrea interviewed a Edwards supporter...and he was so down and dissappointed...very sad...talk about being duped....)

enigma4ever said...

Okay...we had the PUMA update ...and how she can still win ????Michelle Barnard was explaining what she heard...on MSNBC...

I am going to go wash dishs and take a brake from the Hillarython...
Be back at 9pm folks...

Bradda said...

The Barnard bit was really odd. These people actually think that Hillz is going to win the nomination before it's all said and done?? Jesus, there's crazy people everywhere! On the eve on women finally getting the right to vote, we actually have women saying they're going to vote McCain?? Really?

DCup said...

Here's one thing (there are several) that bothers me about the Hillary supporters who say they'll vote for McCain or stay home since their candidate didn't get the nomination...(boy, that was a long lead-in)...

As they say such things and react this way, they reinforce the idea that women are simple-minded, emotional and irrational. They're voting their emotions, not sense. That does nothing to advance any feminist ideals, if that's what this is supposed to be about.

They'd rather subject our country to four more years of bad conservative policy? Wow - I'm really impressed by that.

HelenWheels said...

Sebelius is pretty boring... holy shit, I'm glad Obama didn't make her a running mate... zzzzzzzzzzzzz

She needs speech lessons. And humor lessons. Ugh.

HelenWheels said...

Dcup: I'll go one further. They are idiots. Because if they vote for McLame, they are anti-women's reproductive rights AND equal pay, because McLame voted AGAINST both. His record on womens' reproductive rights is abysmal.

SO, in my humble estimation (and I will be blogging on this tomorrow) PUMAs are misogynists. I just can't come to any other conclusion. That's a pretty BIG nose to cut off just to spite their face!!

HelenWheels said...

That crowd is pretty damn loud and not tuned into anyone's speeches. What the HELL are they bothering to show up for if they can't STFU and listen to the speeches?

I dunno... seems like people had much better manners 10 years ago.

Bradda said...

The more I hear from the Hillary supporters the more I think they are just Republican plants. Rush Limbaugh's Operation Chaos and all that goofiness. Like Helen said, how can you call yourself pro-woman when your going to elect McCain?
dcup, Kind of said that they falling into the sexist generalizations. Voting emotions probably isn't a good idea.

HelenWheels said...

Bradda, I thought so too, but when they get interviewd, they are just bitter dems... weird.

I am digging that Nydia Velasquez!!

HelenWheels said...

Bradda, they interviewed a woman tonight and probably because she was by herself, her rabid anti-Obama facade sort of broke down the second they asked her about womens' positions on things.

Truly, any woman who knows McLame's voting record on womens' issues and still votes must be an idiot.

DCup said...

Helenwheels - (OT - I didn't realize you'd lived in Chicago. We lived there for 15 years and it's MathMan's hometown.)

I agree that they are behaving like ideas. And petulant children. Since so many of them appear to be beyond their reproductive years, I find them to be incredibly selfish.

Okay - here's another thing that I've been contemplating blogging, but I know it will totally piss people off and I'm not in the mood for a comment fight (cowardly, I know), but here it is - a lot of those voters want to be begged for their vote. It's sickening. I saw Rep. Loretta Sanchez on television telling Dan Abrams that Obama needed to ask for her endorsement or she wouldn't offer it. How petty is this going to get?

These folks seem to miss the point that Republicans are viewed as "winners" (even thought they suck ass) because they are so good at staying on message and hanging together. Lots of independent voters view this inter-party bickering as weakness.

Sheesh - Enigma, tell me to shut up if I'm being too chatty.

enigma4ever said...

WEll Hell's Bells I went down and washed dishes..and you guys are having a great conversation...wonderful...love it...About the Hillaryornithingelseboneheads...I have nothing to say...
I am just stunned- WHO is funding them and poking them on....WHO....

Okay 9:28 Robert Casey is speaking- boy he is so so boring....

hmm, maybe now I need to fols laundry...

HelenWheels said...

DCup, I agree 100%!!!! You should post on it!

YES Petulant children. It's sickening.

Enigma please let me know if I'm taking over your thread too much! You know how exciting this is & new to me (blogging the event). I really seem to be getting caught up!

DCup I hope you do a BIG post on that, and don't worry that it feels "mean" it isn't! A brat is a brat is a selfish brat!

What prima donnas!

HelenWheels said...

Yeah he's boring. They all are. OY.

enigma4ever said...

Noooo You all are great DCUP don't ever shut up...I just have nothing to say- I can not understand the Hillary people...I mean COME ON - let's MOVE forward...

enigma4ever said...

Helen you are fine- I am sitting here sipping my iced tea and laughing cuz I have not even been able to put in words why these people confuse the fuck out of me,....


Bradda are still there buddy ?

HelenWheels said...

I noticed a couple of people dressed in "flagwear"... I thought the rethugs had cornered the market on that. Earth to dems: Flagwear is neocon-wear!!!

enigma4ever said...

WHO is at the podium ? she looks like Church Lady ???

Good lord..okay leavin cspan off to Keith...

enigma4ever said...

Note to ALL Humans REd White and Blue is NOT a fashion statement...Tweety is setting Keith into a Coma....

Bradda said...

Yea, I'm justa watching...i have a feeling I'm not going to like what Warner is going to say...not at ALL!

HelenWheels said...

poor Lilly Ledbetter... she has a "deer-in-the-headlights" look. But she's not a politician so it's probably like torture having to talk up there.

Bradda said...

I wonder if Keith will have another "moment" with Scarborough soon?? That was freakin hilarious yesterday...."Get a shovel" LOL

DCup said...

Yay! The dress door just opened! Here's another rant. I think I blogged this back when PoliTits was a young blog.

Note to protesters: If you look like clowns, no one is going to take you seriously. Try dressing in suits and ties, or business casual, drop the masks and funny hats and pins and sashes. Definitely lose the costumes.

I wonder if it would help.

HelenWheels said...

NOOOOOO!!! More bad music!!

Why do they keep singing weird sexy hits from the 70's and 80's as if they have political themes??

SOOOO bad. GEEEZ.

Bradda said...

dcup, I kind of like the fact that they dress goofy. Makes it easier for me to tell who the goofy ones are! Heh...otherwise they blend right in.

Bradda said...

You love Helen, I know your dancing along... ;)

DCup said...

I'm getting this vicariously through you guys right now. My son is watching "Dirty Jobs" and the host is at a dairy farm. There's been shit, bull semen and fire on udders.

Pretty much like the Convention, I suspect.

HelenWheels said...

DCup is right! Don't dress like a freakin' clown and then expect to be treated with respect! That's my main beef with code pink. Sigh.

Bradda I missed that!! WHY did I miss that? I can't stand Joe Scarborough...

Enigma: LOL @ Churchlady. OK now here comes Warner. Please don't let him be boring. The last 4 out of 5 were putting ME in a coma.

HelenWheels said...

uh oh... "race for the future"?

Bradda said...

This whole ceremony reminds me of Star Wars "Attack of the Clone"...maybe it's me.

HelenWheels said...

Like death race 2010? Or something? LOL. Sorry I am a blabbermouth... obviously...

HelenWheels said...

dcup HOLY SHIT that's funny!!!

ANd definitely more interesting than the convention. What makes it fun is dissing it. Otherwise I'd be bored to tears.

DCup said...

Gah! I guess I can watch the coverage after 10pm. If I want......this is really more fun to get the bits and pieces from you guys.

enigma4ever said...

OMG....you are sooooo funny....thank you...and so now Warner is telling about that he was a Cellphone person ? what ? I don't understand....and Dcup is udderly right....is this guy for real???soooooooo Boring omg...I might go into a coma...

( they should have let Kucinich do it..)

HelenWheels said...

It's not just you, Bradda. It's all of us. We all have things to pick at here. I think that the whole thing's been badly produced BUT that is, after all, the dem way. Rethugs are more nazi-like so they have everything done to a T. It's just how it is. Dems have more laid-back, "creative" types and so everyone's late, most things are done half-assed, etc. I was at a Kucinich function where he arrived and the thing was supposed to START at 7:30 and they were just setting up at 7:45... Dennis looked a little confused (but that's when I got to meet him).

Dems just lack that rightwing rigitity.

enigma4ever said...

Okay...SO WHY do they play 80's Music ? is it because the Repugs have all the Sweating to the Oldies Tapes ? or why can't they play Some Good Music ? Some U2, Some Ludicrous, some Kanye West ? Matchbox 20 ? Even Some Ray Charles....and some Marvin....sigh....

Okay I am watching my cat chase a spider..and lilly is scratching in front of the TV- staring at the guy....has her head tilted....like HUH?

6-6 ate all my snacks....hmmmm....

Bradda said...

OUCH...nice dig at Bush and the nutty evangelicals!! "An administration that believes in science". OUCH.

Bradda said...

If your coporation only torn down it's opponents it wouldn't work, Warner?!?? Ummmm....WALMART?

DCup said...

Mark Warner made his money on cellphones, but I don't remember which company.

I'm glad to hear science mentioned!

HelenWheels said...

Barack has good taste in music so I'm sort of amazed at the generic crap they are playing. It's not even playing it safe. It's just BAD. "I'm so excited" and "Celebrate Good Times Come On" what's next, "Afternoon Delight"?? Holy shit.

HelenWheels said...

Yeah Bradda that was a good knee in the nuts, eh? LOL!!

HelenWheels said...

Yes, yay for science and I hope they keep mentioning it to the exclusion of RELIGION because that has nothing to do with anything.

I hope SOMEONE has the guts to bring up McLAME's abysmal womens' issues record. But I doubt even Hillary will. If she does, it'll go a looong way toward assuaging my anger at her. However, I'm still going to excoriate the PUMAs on my blog tomorrow.

Bradda said...

I joked the other day that Obama should come out to Simply Red's, "If you don't know me by now". For all the loons who still think he's a Muslim and all that other crap. I think it fits perfect but most people wouldn't get it.

HelenWheels said...

Not to offend any of you who may be religious, what I meant was, religion has nothing to do with GOVERNMENT. Just to clarify.

DCup said...

Please. More separation of church and state! I'm so sick of the god talk.

HelenWheels said...

MORE Hughy Louis? Whoever produced the musical portion of this deserves the death penalty. And I'm not even FOR the death penalty.

DCup said...

Did you guys catch this from Casey:

I'm hearing Bob Casey from the convention floor on my radio, and I think this line of his should become the Democrats' new mantra: "John McCain says he's a maverick. But he's voted with Bush over 90% of the time. That's not a maverick. That's a sidekick!"

I saw it on TPM.

Bradda said...

No doubt. Isn't it a given that all the politicains what god to bless America? Do they have to end every speech with it? Oh yea, people REALLY like that line don't they?

HelenWheels said...

Me too and I literally wrote that 10 seconds before Warner said God Bless America.

Ugh.

Bradda said...

dcup, HAH! He fits the sidekick part quite well!

HelenWheels said...

Bradda: LOL great minds think alike.

It's time to start expecting GOD to do something and doing it ourselves, eh?

GEEEEZ. You'd think the evangenitals would realize that "god" hasn't smiled too kindly on us under the shrub.

Bradda said...

As they say in Fight Club. Maybe god hates you! Heh...

enigma4ever said...

Bradda- that is a GREAT song- see ANOTHER band that would be so wonderful...( and then they could play "Holding Back the Years " ( for Hill People)...okay so.....He is done...Thank god...geeeeeez that was bad- sooooo boring...

Dcup - Ann Richardson's daughter earlier really hammered the women issues excellently....( I can not remember her name..)

OMG...Tweety is talking about how we were told to shop after 911 ..that was soo patriotic...Nice to know that pissed him off....would have been nice MSM had picked up on that back in 2001....

HelenWheels said...

Does Ted Strickland think it's important to pronounce every single letter in every single fucking word he says?

Bradda said...

Somebody comb Tweedy's hair!!

enigma4ever said...

Helen...
evangenitals ???omg

Bradda said...

Ok, my pizza's here! Starving! I'll be back in a bit with a full belly.

HelenWheels said...

Oh and obviously meant "stop" not "start" above. Sorry. Had a glass of Chardonnay and now I truly am Hell on wheels... snick.

HelenWheels said...

I got that off of a lot of posters at RAWStory.

We like to talk about how sexually repressed they are. And therefore how homophobic, perverted, etc.

HelenWheels said...

Enjoy pizza Bradda! My favorite thing in the world (almost)... pizza....

HelenWheels said...

Holy crap now I know why the crowd is so mumbly and bored. All these speakers are saying the exact same thing. How BORING after awhile, one just can't take it anymore.

enigma4ever said...

OKAY I have fucking had it where is the FIRE...the Bushco SUCKS and Lets NOT Torture? where is ANGST the ANger- the WE NEED THIS SHIT adminsitration to end...What everybody so fucking polite...what the hell...
Warner- I have see toast that was so much more exciting...

HelenWheels said...

I Hear ya!! WHERE IS the anger at the gutting of the Constitution???? oH wait... his voice just officially "shook" but too bad it was strickland's last sentence. OMG, too funny...

enigma4ever said...

I smell Pizza....Hmmm...that reminds me- I have frozen downstairs...here I go....gonna throw that in...

Warner YOU SUCK...you may have know about Cellphone- but buddy you don't know nothing about HOW TO CONNECT...

HelenWheels said...

Ugh. Another "family" story... OK let's see what happens with this one... Deval Patrick? Don't know him.

HelenWheels said...

Keith just asked it: When are dems going to take advantage of the FREE AIR TIME and beat the bejeezits out of McLame??? WHY AREN'T THEY?

WIMPS. It's so annoying....

DCup said...

Deval Patrick - is he the Gov. of Mass.? Came after Romney?

HelenWheels said...

LOL on your Warner diss...

HelenWheels said...

Why do you call Anderson Cooper MapBoy, BTW?

enigma4ever said...

yup and he is friends with Obama....
( patrick...)

Okay....so is she going to make us wait ? like always ?

HelenWheels said...

Dcup I didn't pay attention! He didn't speak long at all, I missed it!

HelenWheels said...

OH thanks for clearing it up, Enigma. Yep who wants to bet she's "fashionably" late like most divas?

Y'know, there was a point where I truly liked Hillary Clinton. And then she ran for president...

DCup said...

Have you guys been listening to the a.m. morning callers? Holy Shit - it's getting crazy out there.

HelenWheels said...

Deval's kinda young + hot to be a gov. Just sayin.

HelenWheels said...

No, I like my a.m.s quiet (by habit). MAybe I should tune in. Where, NPR?

HelenWheels said...

Who's that sitting next to Bill Clinton? Looks like an older Anna Marie Cox...

enigma4ever said...

It is his escort..( sitting next to Bubba)

Okay so Schweitzer of Montana ( gov) is speaking and he has been bashing Bush and McCain very very nicely.....

good..

Now about the Cottoncandybrained Punditheads on MSNBC...I can not take it...lordy....Thank heavens for Keith and Eugene and Rachel- otherwise I would have had to Elvis my TV by now....shit...

OKAY let's be real Hill was and IS Always atleast a half an hour late to ANY speech she gives....

DCup said...

Okay. I just turned it on. MSNBC. David Gregory with Bill Richardson.

HelenWheels said...

Why is Bill sitting slack-jawed and alternatively chatting up that redhead?

enigma4ever said...

Okay Clinton has been sitting there with his mouth open...for over 3 minutes waiting to catch flies????

Carter is with Biden and visiting with Michelle- she looks lovely....so lovely....

Doors are closed...there is a HUGE crowd...WHY does Bill NOT shut his mouth ..

enigma4ever said...

Okay- Helen you and I noticed the same thing...What the hell ...they show him sitting there with his mouth open....like he is what ???

Okay Crikey the Video about Hillary...oh my god this is Soooooooo Awful....I might puke...( WHO chose the music...????and omg now we are going to have to listen to all of these old speechs with bad music ????)

It is a Hillary for Prez tape...WTF???

DCup said...

Phrase I'd like to see retired?

God give (fill in the blank).

Mariamariacuchita said...

Ok, the hubby has been watching a Dvd, just wanted to say hi.
I have Cecile's speech posted for those who missed it...met her many years ago when her mom was the Gov.

enigma4ever said...

omg...they are honoring HER laugh !!!! WHY ???

okay this is putrid...

WHO picked the music ???

DCup said...

This video is NOT helping.

enigma4ever said...

Oh Maria-
Hey there I saw her speech it was great - I mentioned it above and told them she is the only one that really focused on McCoot....Thanks for that...Soooooo I will send folks...for sure..

Mariamariacuchita said...

Cecile is amazing, sharp and has been watching the right wing and reporting on them for over a decade that I know of.

Hillary is oranged out, but it looks good on her.

HelenWheels said...

Um oops I thought I was tuned into the dem convention but apparently it's the academy awards

Mariamariacuchita said...

Hi, Dcup, don't know you, but have seen your comments here and there.

Mariamariacuchita said...

hi, helenwheels.

Gryphen said...

Now she mounts the stage.

In a delightful orange pantsuit and acting the queen.

By the by that video sucked!

HelenWheels said...

Mystery re: slack jaw + redhead still not solved.

Hillary is making this about her. Not cool.

Let's see what she says.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Is Bill crying or is he overdosing on the Visine??

HelenWheels said...

ARGH!!! Michelle Obama needs to take that look of murder off her face!! WTF!!! I hope it was just intensity.... geez, I dig her but put on a fucking poker face lady!

Gryphen said...

I think that Michelle Obama's face was telling us something not reflected in the words of Hillary Clinton.

She looked like she had just eaten something distasteful.

DCup said...

Right out of the gate! Her stock just went up with me.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Wouldn't ya love to hear Hillary really tell us what she thinks?

Mariamariacuchita said...

wait, she's going with the bald-headed lady story........arggghhh. Next ,we hear that she was fired upon in Serbia.

enigma4ever said...

Okay....I am giving her a chance because I am worried...we need her to really be persuasive and kick some ass...and we know that she can kick ass...WHAT is it about Bill- geez...

Okay - now you all know each other Bradda, Dcup and Maria and Gryphen...Sigh...I hope this is not a Hill LoveFest...We need her to tell them to GO TO OBAMA...

Bradda said...

So far so good with the speech, Hillz! Just keep it up now!

Gryphen said...

The "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits"?

Remind me to never add that to my Netflix queue.

DCup said...

Hi, Maria!

Also, tonight I saw Michelle Obama described as having an innate scowl. It's true.

And yes, she needs to smile. A lot.

DCup said...

Hi, Maria!

Also, tonight I saw Michelle Obama described as having an innate scowl. It's true.

And yes, she needs to smile. A lot.

enigma4ever said...

OKAY 7 minutes in and still NO mention of Obama....

not much bush bashing....

McCoot also has NOT been mentioned at ALL...

DCup said...

The soundbite could be:

No way.
No how.
No McCain.

Wonder how long it will take for the commentators to repeat it.

Bradda said...

gryphen, Also, you already know how it ends! Heh...

Why did she get a video lead-in like Teddy?? She's not dying for godsake! America, come in second place and get a video~!

Mariamariacuchita said...

just saying, Dcup, only looks like a scowl cause Michelle's not down with the Botox.

enigma4ever said...

About Michelle Smiling - it would be nice if the MSM would occasionally also put her on camera when she smiles- remember the men are sitting in a trailer with a wall of Cameras' all they have to do is pan to the GOOD shot- but they choose the Horse shots..

Bradda said...

enigma she mentioned Obama right at the beginning. The big finale will be Bush bashing...

enigma4ever said...

I think Michelle is very serious...I don't think she smiles alot..she is intense...

Bradda said...

Mmmmmmmm special blend...

enigma4ever said...

yeah bradda but it was like in passing..like oh by the way...

enigma4ever said...

Bradda- Special blend ???is there pizza left ?

HelenWheels said...

OK Hillary is doing OK with intermittent spots wherein she likes kudos. That's OK.

DCup said...

Seriously - I thought she made a strong statement right away about supporting Obama.

HelenWheels said...

Michelle finally smiled when Hillary got on board.

She better develop a better poker face or should we say fake smile?

She still rocks (Michelle) but you know the FauxNoise will jump on anything.

Gryphen said...

Who's this President Clinton she keeps mentioning?

Still living the dream huh Hil?

Bradda said...

enigma Hillz talked about a special American blend...nopers on the pizza. I look like a tick!

helen, She's doing pretty good I think, and I'm not her biggest fan. :)

Mariamariacuchita said...

When the going gets tough, Hillary gets going. She isn't even clawing Michelle's eyes out for being a cookie baker.

Bradda said...

Stop saying McCain is your friend!!!! Grrrrrrrr...

enigma4ever said...

They show Bill and he is like crying ? drunk ?: what??really weird..

okay they mention Michelle- NOT the Cameras did Not pan to her and she was smiling just now for Biden..

I hope she persuades her "people"

DCup said...

I'm glad to see her attacking McCain.

Gryphen said...

I am impressed that Hil is giving props to Michelle and her speech.

Did that make Michelle smile?

By the way I would prefer to have a first lady who did NOT have a great fake smile. I would like a genuine person who is less actress and more real person.

But hey that is just me.

HelenWheels said...

Holy shit! Now I want to vote for Hillary!!

Well done (so far, 2nd half of speech).

enigma4ever said...

She is doing pretty good she is finally mentioning Bush and McCain YEAH!!! alright Hill finally..

Mariamariacuchita said...

good knock on the Bush/McCain separated at birth analogy.

Bradda said...

She needed to hit McCain more...It was a good start then....fizzle

HelenWheels said...

I totally agree. She can use the real smile when Obama gets elected. right now she's under the retardo magnifying glass... sad but true.

HelenWheels said...

She's hittin' McLame AND women's rights!

Gryphen said...

Am I drunk or is Chelsea looking kind of hot?

Sorry having a guy moment here.

DCup said...

Jesus Christ - okay, let's have Michelle sit and frown. That will win votes and garner good press.

Goodnight, y'all. Glad to see you're as open minded as the rest of them.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Good...the crowd is getting glazed over...she will hypnotize them to vote for Obama....

Bradda said...

night dcup

Mariamariacuchita said...

god ending.....I mean good ending

Mariamariacuchita said...

night Dcup

Gryphen said...

Oh I just noticed that Hillary does that thumb tucked in fist gesture that Bill always uses.

She just finished.

I thought she did very good.

And Keith is loving it too.

HelenWheels said...

It was a really riveting speech but she underhandedly gave herself props. BUT THAT'S OK. If I were her, I'd do the same.

Really. Smart cookie.

Bradda said...

Pretty well done Hillz. Bravo...

enigma4ever said...

Gryphen::: honey you been in Alaska tooooo long....kinda hot ???oh dear...

Maria::
I think she said what they wanted to hear and needed to hear I would like to hear some Bush asskissing...

Dcup Sorry what did you mean about Open minded as the rest of them ? Sorry what did that mean?
I thought she did pretty good...it was better than I thought it was going to be ...her folks loved it...

HelenWheels said...

Yeah, Keith is really impressed.

It was brilliant, and she used the same sneaky elements one does when they want to pump themself up by appearing to be honoring others. BRILLIANT.

HelenWheels said...

Tweety aged 20 years tonight. Now he seems drunk AND old. WTF? his hair turned white now it's flying all over. And he seems confused.

enigma4ever said...

I thought she did a good job...tried to let her people know that they need to not abandon what she started...

and she did bash bush and mccain....

Bradda said...

I just wish she didn't say McCain was a friend of hers. A lot of her supporter's ear's perked when they heard that. The Dems have GOT to stop calling these guys "good men", "friend of mine", etc and call them the devil!!

Mariamariacuchita said...

She exceeded my expectations, actually. But she could not keep her own self divorced from the rest of the message...I thought she was also somewhat self-promoting. I really wanted her to stop sounding like she was still giving a speech from back when she was running.

HelenWheels said...

G'night D cup from me too. It was a pleasure.

Bradda said...

It's been fun ladies and gents. Time to go drink myself to sleep praying that McCain doesn't win.

Gryphen said...

Maybe it was just the lighting.

By the way can somebody please hand Chris Matthews a comb?

Keith looks crisp and sharp while Chris looks like he just woke up from a nap.

Mariamariacuchita said...

and she'd better come on stronger with McCain...because he is getting his nasty on in the ads.

Mariamariacuchita said...

Keith, I'm proud too.

Don't you love Rachel?

Mariamariacuchita said...

Well, I'm off to bed, too. G'night.

enigma4ever said...

Okay ALL.... Dcup, Maria..Gyrphen, Bradda, and Helen..thank you all so much for your thoughts and perspectives....Oh lordy now they are showing Mrs GreenSpan interviewing an old woman...

I do Wish SOMEONE anyone would come on stronger about MCCain and Bush and the HELL we have been living ALL of us...

BURN BABY BURN....is playing...omg......

( Andrea is gonna cry...lordy...)

HelenWheels said...

bradda, I agree. I like the fact that liberal/lefties like to be actual "people" or humanists but when it comes to a competition is annoying. COMPETE damn you!!

Hillary did better than I thought, I'm OK with a little self-congrats/promotion... It's cool. She really was riveting and that helped.

Shwew.

HelenWheels said...

Just stoppping by to say hi. I think Hill did very well. I had my doubts about it all, but I would say she delivered a strong & clear message. There was not the whining or 2nd guessing innuendo I thought there might have been.

I particularly liked her to the point line

"No way • No How • No McCain"

Her way of saying don't even think about voting for him & then went on to articulate specific differences.

She did very well. Whew!

We can put that one to rest.

enigma4ever said...

Hi Fran...
Yes, she did what was needed...I too was worried...but I think she said what needed to be said...which is good....

I am still nervous about Bill tomorrow...but we will have Biden tomorrow...and that should be good....

I think the media is the one that is really hyping the Hillary supporter issue....I don't know any Hillary people that are not TRUE Democrats...not at this point...

Alien Citizen said...

Mannnnn, I didn't realize there was a DNC party over here or I would have joined! :-) I too have to go crash now but I did love seeing at least two things tonight, Kucinich (of course, he was/is GREAT) and all 8(?) women senators, several of whom I wasn't previously familiar with.

enigma4ever said...

Alien::
I am sorry...Just so you know I blog all things, and sometimes people come by and sometimes they don't...you are always welcome ;-)

( I did ALL the debates etc..)

And Kucinich was great....I dont know if I saw eight women...( I was going between channels...)...but thanks....I will be here again tomorrow night..
