Observations of the republican convention:
They sure do savor war.
Why is Joe Lieberman still posing as a democrat?
Younger people have no idea of John McCain's "maverick" history. All they see is an old guy that everyone says is a maverick and it's just. not. clicking.
They have amped up Sarah Palin as high as someone can be amped. She's like the saving grace. She has to be.
Lieberman, the should've been veep, dismissed Obama as an "eloquent" young man. But I suppose that's what conventions are about --slamming the other guy. I'd prefer Obama's experience, cool head, intelligence and leadership over McCain's experience any day. A leader he is not.
Laura Bush used the phrase: "change we can really believe in" when referring to her hubby. I cackled.
These people really cheered Bush. I don't know what's with all these pundits saying that the republicans don't like Bush. They clearly did.
So far, I haven't heard anything other than Sarah Palin is Golden and John McCain is a war hero. It looks like the republican strategy is to sell personality. McCain's guy, Rick Davis, said earlier that they believe Americans will vote on personality, not issues, which proves how severely out of touch they are.
Palin will woo the people who wouldn't have voted for a democrat anyway --and the PUMAs, those ladies (and a few men) who find the slogan NoBama appealing.
