More DNC Notes
After Hat stepped away halfway through Carter, I thought I'd give it a whirl. I lasted for all of Hillary. I'm calling her Hillary the Hawk. She was clearly campaigning for herself in 2008 and trying to position herself as some kind of liberal Margaret Thatcher.
It's about 3/4 of the way (I'd hope) through Bill and, good readers, I'm afraid I can't do this anymore. I'm seriously worried about my mental (and dental---from all the teeth clenching) health. While Bill was charming, he lost me when he tried to claim that Bush and the Republicans alone were against signing Kyoto and allowing Americans to be under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. It makes a nice sound bite and I don't expect the national media to dispute it, but those are lies, plain and simple. And, I don't want to even get into his distorted take on tax cuts.
The fact is, I expect this kind of rhetoric at a convention. I just shouldn't have expected to be able to stand it without wanting to throw up.
No more convention coverage from me. I'm spent.
