John McCain, that was a class act!
I'm not voting for you, but you do have (and always have had) my respect.
The Democratic Party convention, which started as a complete yawn, has definitely gained momentum. It's a monument to American diversity. Today, the invocation prayer was led by a rabbi, the pledge of allegiance was led by Shawn Johnson, the gold medaled gymnast sweetie pie of the Olympics and the Star Spangled Banner sung by a lovely black singer whose name escapes me at the moment (she was fantastic). And tonight, on the anniversary of MLK's I Have A Dream speech, the first person of color to reach the presidential nomination takes the podium with what promises to be a barn-burner of a speech. A proud day, indeed, for this embattled nation. The mood is "better days are coming" and the economy took a significant uptick today.
After that classy ad by McCain, is the Democratic nominee going to diss him? I guess we'll see.
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
