I’m not helping his ratings one bit. I’ll catch the highlights tomorrow.

the guardian live blog is a decent way to catch the highlights without pumping up his numbers.

Scrolling down a bit, I liked this tweet in particular:

Quote:
Still can't believe a major political party punted on the incredibly basic task of drawing up a party platform and instead just issued a statement that's basically an "I'm With Stupid" T-shirt.

May his prediction come true. Especially the "really hurt when we lose" part.

I didn’t watch, but who is this supposed to appeal to other than the already committed and converted?

Goodness, they are so close to doing an Führer oath. "We don't have a platform, we don't have anything, all we need is our Donald."

I was so tired that I missed most of it. I don't want to watch it anyway, it's sickening. Like a cult worship session.

The last thing I remember is a blonde woman they called a right to try advocate. I'm very sorry for her health problems, but her speech was bizarre and scary.

Yes, that's exactly what it is.

Nobody. They need to rev up the committed and invent ways to depress the vote (and/or not count it) from the rest.

I've seen a couple of clips of Kimberly Guilfoyle on the morning shows. What the hell was that?

I read that she said in her speech that she is a 1st generation immigrant from Puerto Rico. That can't be true. Then again she's dating Donald Trump Jr.

Let's recall why she left Fox News too.

I think she said her mother is an immigrant from PR, she's 1st generation American.
I didn't know until today and googling her (cause really would never have had reason to before) that she is the ex wife of Gavin Newsom. Talk about politics making strange bedfellows.

Puerto Rico became US territory in 1917. Not trying to nitpick, but I don't think she could be factually correct. Unless she said grandmother?

She fits right in with the Trump family, I'll be nice and just leave it at that.

The picture I posted reminds me of Evita. Maybe that was the effect she was trying to achieve.
