This speaker tells us that he built his small business himself.

And needs stronger patent protection.

Well, anyone that bought the hopey changey bullshit 2008 is a fool and anyone that buys the GOP's imitation of it is not just a fool but a damnable and unforgivable fool.

Currently, we have corporate oligarchy - which is essentially equivalent to a communist state, except one where the citizens are not even operating under the fantasy that they have the power, at any level. They already know they're serfs.

It's funny to me that the Tea Partiers complain about the dangers of creeping socialism - actually, already, what we have in America is something much worse. Obama is the first Wall Street fully paid up president in history.

To wit, legalised, coded-in corporate fascism.

Well, that's part of my point. The Tea Party movement don't mean shit. It's not a movement, it doesn't matter and whatever its shills say can be safely discounted.

The SCOTUS is now a political entity.

This is why an Obama victory is so critical.

I hope you get the rights you're entitled to.

But I'm not prepared to put the rights of people in America above the rights of my friends.

This you're going to have to explain.

Also, I'm much more concerned about abortion rights and the increase of corporate power than I am about SSM.

Leave Bono out of this, Huckabee!

Also, maybe you can try to say "We can do better" a few more times.

Bush Budget Director and National Security Advisor speaking so far tonight. Next, I think is the Death Star thermal exhaust port designer.

Yeah.

He said something along the lines of:

"I've had the pleasure of working with Bono for the last few years on the ONE campaign. Bono is an Irishman and a wonderful humanitarian..."

And then he proceeded to quote the old Bonoism about how America isn't just a country...it's an idea!

Tim Pawlenty's entrance music was "When Love Comes To Town."

What's next tonight? Paul Ryan saying, "OK Edge, play the blues," halfway through his speech.

If Paul Ryan is elected, he'll make sure the government keeps auto plants from closing!
