I just couldn't listen to it. I heard small bits of Arnie's and Frist's speeches. I just couldn't subject myself to much of it. This convention is succeeding in firing me up to do all I can to help John Kerry get elected. When I see the alternative......
Luckily, Max is blogging the convention for us.
So, it sounds like it is going to be all 9/11 all the time over there. It is the only thing they really have to capitalize on: an emotional response to the tragedy. They have no ideas. Giuliani says that the election is more than picking conservative or liberal. It is about choosing a strong leader. It is because they can't fight on any issue of substance. All they can try to do is make Kerry look like one of poor character, and mister "my pet goat" look like some kind of leader. He also repeated the lie about Kerry calling himself an anti-war candidate. Giuliani also spent a good deal of time talking about how the US policy towards terrorism had to change after 9/11. Well, duh. Everyone, Bush included, didn't have terrorism as the #1 priority before 9/11. Bush is supposed to get sainthood for recognizing terrorism as a priority after 9/11? Would a president Gore, or a president Kerry not make a fight against terrorism a #1 priority. In my opinion President Bush took the easy, default positions on everything after 9/11. He coasted on his approval, talked about how he was going blow some stuff up, if you aren't with us you are against us, don't worry though, you don't have to sacrifice anything though, keep your SUVs.
Since it is too much work to come up with original content, I give you this link:
The World Beard and Moustache Championships - Coming to Berlin, Germany in 2005. Highlights from the 2003 games are available on DVD.
I found this by typing moustache in google. Why did I do that? I don't know.
If you ever wanted to hear a President of the United States burp, and say the words, "Crotch", "Nuts", and "Bunghole", then this is the link for you.
After some googling, I found the peeance freeance video, off the white house website.
Watch the video and go to 6:30.
I don't know if I am late to the party, but I never heard the peeance freeance quote before.
I am now all peeance freeance all the time.
Yes, I used the word turd. I didn't do it lightly.
Is it possible to have a debate on any issue without the Bush Administration using the spectre of terrorism to try to get its way?
I think this is going a little too far.
That is all. Good night and God bless.
Okay, so the press is laughing at our president's answers. I have heard this happen other times, just the edge of perception while watching him on television. What I can't figure out is why the press is so nice to him, when they obviously realize he is inept. Perhaps they feel it would be too mean, like hitting a girl, or picking on a small child.
