Did you see child embryo harvester loser Michele Bachmann speak, just now? She was looking pretty! Her speech was tragically boring, by Bachmann Standards, but she did say on CNN last night that Sarah Palin has more experience than “Barack Obama and Joe Biden combined.” Oh god now there is some young gal lip syncing on on the stage. Btw, look at those glass panels in front of the steps to the glossy stage. The steps are INACCESSIBLE and fraudulent, just like this whole thing, bah. AND STILL no one is here.

    I really wish that “singer” had been lip syncing, because there’s no way that a pre-recorded singer would be allowed to be that bad.

  • SayItWithWookies

    You’re not gonna miss Dubya, are you? And by “miss,” I don’t mean be sad about not seeing.

  • grendel

    Ha! They make it look accessible, but put an invisible box up to keep the hoi poloi at bay…

  • SayItWithWookies

    Ooh, look at Minneapolis Fire Dept. Captain Shannon Hanson. I’ll bet McCain’s there for her, too.

  • The 3-Legged Man

    These up-skirt shots off that mirrored floor are a Republican Coup!

    *praying for the Bush twins to give a speech while wearing catch-me-if-you-can skirts*

    Hey, it’s that guy who’s proud of it retarded son!

    PLEASE PLEASE POST MORE PICTURES OF THE EMPTY VENUE! NPR is making it sound like the place is filling up.

  • nietzscheprojectile

    Jesus. This is one low rent production. Bush I looks jovially confused and disgusted at the same time.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=79914]SayItWithWookies[/re]: HIS retarded son. Damn they stomped all over Chief Hanson’s appearance. Lost a vote. I suppose that’s a drink.

  • grendel

    Nah, whenever they show a low shot you can see the empty seats above the people standing on the floor…

  • WonkaBee

    Well, how is it, for a dirty-minded satirical psychotic comedy?

    And I am in SERIOUS American Apparel withdrawal here!!!!!

  • SayItWithWookies

    The crowd’s getting very restless. They don’t like highlighting their major fails — ah, they’ll get used to it.

  • nietzscheprojectile

    I feel kinda sorry for the lady firefighter. No one really seems to care.

  • VivaLaCynthia

    Hilarious that they don’t trust their own delegates enough to stay behind the velvet rope–they had to put the plexiglass fence in front of the stairs on the stage, too.

  • WadISay

    The plastic barrier at the foot of the steps is to keep speakers from escaping.

  • VivaLaCynthia

    Oh, I forgot, it’s a FREEDOM stage that has to be contained! They’re not trying to keep people off the glass steps up to the cage, they’re trying to keep all the freedom from spilling out into the crowd…

  • jagorev

    Oh hey, a tribute to Lincoln. The Republicans are accepting of gays as well!

  • SayItWithWookies

    Teddy Roosevelt had a well-known motto: Speak softly and carry a big stick.
    George Bush has a similar motto: Speak loud and get your big stick caught in a stump, and let your enemies gather together and chew you to pieces. Then blame the Democrats.

  • nietzscheprojectile

    So, um, Reagan is now a better speaker than Lincoln. I am having an embolism right now.

  • lightskinegro

    All hail Lincoln. Our savior!!!

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    I know I’m the only one listening on the radio, but NPR is trying their damndest to sound like they really approve of the entire thing, complimenting the Republicans on the stark simplicity of the stage and talking about how the seats are filling up. You know what else is filling up? My throat. With bile.

  • ladymacbeth

    [re=79916]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: NPR is making it sound like repubs are united, the convention is rockin, delegates are fired up and sarah palin is god’s gift to evangelicals and disaffected pantsuits everywhere.

    WTF?

  • shanadee

    [re=79910]SayItWithWookies[/re]: err…that whole Lincoln montage was horrifying and also confusing, kinda like McCain every time he goes off cue cards!

  • btwbfdimho

    I am impressed by the big screen on the background of the stage. But…all that water flowing? Is that for Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Sarah’s or Bristol’s tummy, or Bristol Bay, or what?

  • iwillsavethispatient

    [re=79943]ladymacbeth[/re]: Is it comedy hour?

    Typical hispanic family? RACIST!!!

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=79941]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Oh I love it when they do that. Maybe I read too much of what I want into what they say, but they fling the backhanded compliments like pennies at poor children.

  • echoman2000

    that’s a turpentine shot with a glue gun chaser. and the pexiglass barricade? like they’re all going to rush the stage in their walkers and canes. very dawn of the living dead. cindy’s maid/child must of spent the whole day wiping off the fingerprints and layers of bengay.

  • grendel

    [re=79945]btwbfdimho[/re]: Just a little psychological joke on the old and incontinent

  • Strictly for the Tardcore

    [re=79941]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: By this point in the DNC, by all accounts, you had to murder someone in ritual combat just to get standing room. How can they call “the place is filling up” this late in day two anything other than the harshest backhanded compliment they could come up with?

  • Berkcd
  • shanadee

    I seriously can’t stomach any more of this….I mean who is this “Democrat” who supports John McCain? Sometimes I take Ambien to help me sleep, but this coverage of the RNC and the shots of the people in the audience are making me verrrry sleepy.

  • Delicious

    I’m really sick of these Teddy Roosevelt comparisons to Palin. Roosevelt was a highly regarded historical writer and assistant secretary of the navy (actually was running the thing) before he became governor of New York. And he killed Spaniards!

  • DoctorCulturae

    [re=79943]ladymacbeth[/re]: The MSM has lost the ability even to TRY to be objective. Now the only way to be “objective” is to merely say positive things about everything. It’s tragic particularly if its on NPR. I see an awful lot of tighty whiteys.

  • SayItWithWookies

    “He believes in the sanctity of marriage and family life.”
    Gaaa — sorry. Choking on tongue.

  • PedestrianMe

    The speakers are all look like they’re standing in the waiting room from Quantum Leap because of the blue/teal/glow background.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Hey, they’re both naval aviators. And they were both shot down. And they’d both be awful presidents.

  • PedestrianMe

    FYI, Republicans, Pearl Harbor was not in the United States when it was attacked. It was in a Hawaiian kingdom with a US base.

  • Delicious

    GHWB “erased all ghosts of Vietnam.” Haha. And W resurrected them, just for shits and giggles.

  • jagorev

    Man, it’s weird to think how there was once a President Bush who was actually kind of smart and competent.

  • echoman2000

    Barbara Bush is holding a lei on her arm. If that isn’t a coded signal to vote for the exotic Hawaiian I don’t know what is.

  • DoctorCulturae

    [re=79953]shanadee[/re]: Seeing Barbara B. again makes me remember Imus’s remark about GWB 41. Imus said he liked him, he just didn’t know why he married his mother.

    The only interesting thing to watch is Chris Matthews amazing hair choreography.

    That pool of blood red carpet is a nice touch too. They hired one bitter queen of set designer this year.

    Woah, more Quantum Leap waiting room blue screen…

  • The Incomparable Tiny Valdez

    G’night. (burp).

  • SayItWithWookies

    The speaker just said that her deployment to Bosnia was the best one of her career. Funny how that got no applause in the arena.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    WHO THE FUCK is doing the speech right now? The whole “I almost died, I almost died, I almost died, I was going to die, I was on death watch, my parents were watching me die, I was dying.” WTF?

  • areyoukiddingme?

    I think this makes it clear that no one expected THE SKIRT to get (accept?) the Veep nom. Whoops.

    I really don’t understand the whole Sara thing – honestly. I realize there are alot of people who love her for loving the the baby jesus so much, but I really think her ultra-conservative, trailer park lifestyle will backfire in the end. I’ll tell you if I’m right in early Nov.

    I think it has become a side show to many people in the country (much like the god-awful red Madison Ave. advertising now on Wonkette)

    Why does “USA” chanted by a bunch of Republicans sound so sinister?

  • shanadee

    People are going crazy over the First Lady…she seems a little more awake than yesterday, which I guess is a step up from today’s earlier speeches.

  • ladymacbeth

    [re=79986]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: somebody who almost died.

    from leg bleeding.

    no offense meant leg bleeding lady.

    that would be AWESOME.

    Michele Bachmann – LOVIN’ the overbite!!

  • flyingspaghettimonster

    HAHAHA, love the plexiglass… like everything elas about the GOP – the stairs only provide the ILLUSION of access to power by the masses.

  • flyingspaghettimonster

    The shiny black floor is cool too, all the easier for those perverted Republican perverts to look up the wimmen’s dresses.
