        I'm a graduate of the Fred Snowden basketball camp for boys.
        And my old man covered the 'Cats for the now defunct "Citizen" for 30 years.

        • TribecaMike

          ;-) My first "grown up" job was doing paste-up mechanicals at the Citizen in the early seventies before I moved over to the Star. Right wing editorial stance, but a lot of really nice and helpful folks there who put up with a lot of youthful incompetence on my part. For years, I've been planning a novel about those days, but the only problem is I can't write fiction to save my arse.

          • coolhandnuke

            I covered high school sports–while I was in high school–for the Citizen when my dad was sports editor. They canned me due to some nepotism clause.

    throwing peanuts at my TV for the animals in Tampa.

    • Beowoof

      The dog chewed my nerf balls for throwing at the TV. So I really shouldn't watch or something may get broken.

      • sbj1964

        Throwing your balls around can be dangerous,and painful.

            But hey, Latin America!

        • Crank_Tango

          I believe ground nut used to be a term for peanut. Also goober peas, if those translate.

    • BlueStateLibel

      He meant Romney's success as a human replicant.

    In honor of this solemn occasion, I picked up a large bag of salted shelled peanuts. Feel free to dig in, ya Wonkers.

    I haven't decided yet what this event should be called, LoserFest or Festival of Bullshit. However, I think I will look for a rerun of the Newsroom before I watch this nightmare. Well maybe some on Current as at least John Fugelsang will be on and as professional comedian, who would be more appropriate comment on this Diarrhea Dump on America.

  • Mittens Howell, III

    Can't wait for the "Kill Medicare, Kill" chant to go up during Ryan's speech.

    • finallyhappy

      I saw some awful commercial today-I was passing by- in which old people claim the ACA will harm them and take away their health care choices- so maybe no one told them about Ryan's plan- use up those vouchers and die

  • Mittens Howell, III

    George W. Bush will be there, locked in a V.I.P. booth with a bowl of pretzels.

    Shit, did I mss the part where Christie helicopters in and then gets in an SUV for the remaining 100 yard trip to the podium?

    • cheetojeebus

      I visualized some sort of goldfoil covered robotic spider thing with a bucket in the center with Christie poured in, walking above all the little people to the podium. A small laser gun mounted on the bottom to blast anyone who gets 'smart' with him. You know, 'cause it's a special event.

  • UnholyMoses

    By watching this thing and giving them ratings, you're just encouraging them.

    • Arborista

      Can't one watch it & NOT give it ratings?

  • Mittens Howell, III

    Breaking: Gov. Christie just ate all the convention canapes, none left for Mitt Romney.

    I just got a free bottle of wine today, so I can only watch until I'm done drinking. (checks watch . . . ) well fuck, I'm done. Wake me if I miss anything sensible.

  • LibertyLover

    Last night, I waited and waited until someone mentioned G.W. Bush. I never got to pop the cork on my wine bottle.

    THAT's not gonna happen again.

    • TribecaMike

      It took forever for someone to mention Mitt Romney last night as well. Cheers!

      • Mittens Howell, III

        Tonights word: 'Reagan'

        Happy liver implosion.

    • Arborista

      'Change' is apparently tonight's catch-phrase, but if you don't want to drink that much, you could also listen for commentators to use the word 'humanize' to refer to how folks are trying to present Mitt to the public.

      'Wonk' is a word being used to describe Ryan, so 'family man' is a phrase that could get that cork popped…

      Any other predictions for good drinking words/phrases?

      • LibertyLover

        Might get to drink every time someone refers to the debt clock…

        St. Ronnie's name might require more than one bottle.

        Deficit, Medicare, Entitlements…. are all good choices…

      • Blueb4sinrise

        Really?

        • http://www.wonkette.com smokefilledroommate

          I watched about 3 mins. (I love kittehs, even with bad jazz and cam quality).

  • Arborista

    Anyone else as impressed as I am by how effectively the p-nut throwing incident was hushed up? If these were delegates/elected officials I think folks have a right to know.

    • finallyhappy

      You can't just get into the convention(or at least not the Democratic one). You need to have credentials(that is a loose term for this crowd)- someone does know who they are and I think Rush and Sean should just fess up now.

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        Like Rush would waste a perfectly good snack that way. My guess is that it was Sean.

  • no_gravity

    There's a bunch of episodes of Family Guy and the Big Bang Theory on tonight on TBS, I think I'm going with that.

  • BlueStateLibel

    I thought this thing was over by now?

    Also, I like how the black lady is laughing at Dubya in that photo – the flag was probably of some cheap transparent material made in China by Bain-offshored workers and she could she see he was holding it upside down.

    • http://www.wonkette.com smokefilledroommate

      I was just thinking the same thing– I could almost hear her voice in my head: "Aw, George, it's upside down! What a goddamned fool!"

      Yup, that's him. I usually see him and his very tall wife when I go to the Metropolitan Opera, and always spend the first act talking myself out of jumping over seats and beating that war criminal to a pulp. Thanks for fucking up the world and Verdi, Kissinger!

    Why are these people wasting everyone's time talking to people that already agree with them?

    From the You Can't Make This Shit Up Department:

    Mitt Romney's presidential campaign toasted its top donors today aboard a 150-foot yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands, ABC News reports.

    "The exclusive event, hosted by a Florida developer on his yacht 'Cracker Bay,' was one of a dozen exclusive events meant to nurture those who have raised more than $1 million for Romney's bid."

    • finallyhappy

      Not sure if I remember this correctly but during a boat tour around Fort Lauderdale, we were told big yachts/boats carry the flag of where they are registered because registry elsewhere saves a huge amount of tax

    Well after that they have my vote.

    Oh FUCK you, Walnuts…going on about how the President has not spoken up about Syria. Have you forgotten how quickly you went off when he sent troops to Libya?

    Ten Republican senators voted in favor of GOP freshman Rand Paul’s non-binding resolution opposing President Barack Obama’s use of force in Libya on Tuesday — the first congressional action of disapproval since Obama launched the attack last month.

    *and*

    Four prominent senators are also in talks on a potentially more significant authorizing resolution. But the lawmakers— Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Carl Levin (D-Mich) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — are still deciding whether to draft a measure at all under the War Powers Act.

    Let it never be said of us, when confronted with the economic perils in front of us, we turned away, closed our eyes, and did nothing.

    Too late! Of course, the only thing you try to deny more than economic realities is criticism.

      " … we turned away, closed our eyes, and did nothing."

    Pipeline guy is all about Romney's embracing of renewable energy? Romney and Ryan are in favor of letting the incentive for wind power expire. Also, pipeline dude doesn't seem to be aware that we're drilling more oil and mining more coal now than we've ever been.

    • Guppy

      But oil is a renewable resource… in geological terms… which they deny…

    Was watching on PBS, but seeing Gwen Ifill actually enjoying herself with David Brooks and that Peggington of Nooninghamshire look-a-like was just too much.

    Blessed are the coolie wage workers whose low labor costs create investors and jobs. Romney promises to put America back to work again, but without coolie wage workers that is impossible. Getting rid of the minimum wage and high welfare payments to the poor will provide the investor with the incentive to open a business. Those that demand big pay checks will have to remain unemployed until they accept becoming a hard working coolie with a job.

  • Peckerwood_Pete

    I tell ya… if Romney didn't have an "R" next to his name, and Obama didn't have a "D" next to his… 90% of the voters in this country would be as confused as a 2 dollar whore with a 20 dollar bill in her hand, as to who to vote for.
