One Down

Answer:  None

Question:  How much of the ‘Pub convention did you see on teevee?

True fact.  And yet, I’m totally oversaturated and exhausted by it.  I’m also extremely impressed by the sheer volume of flat-out lies the speakers indulged in, especially Cryin’ Paul Ryan.  The Lyin’ King.

But what is truly puzzling (to me, anyway) is what convention organizers expected from the candidate’s wife, because from what I can determine, it backfired.  Best summation I read?  Toss-up between Gail Collins and Michael Sewage.  Here’s Collins:

Ann [Romney] assured the crowd that her husband had spent “countless hours helping others,” and although that was pretty vague, we do have other accounts of his good deeds, mainly for fellow parishioners at church. She also seemed intent on telling us that he’s a fun guy, full of Mittwit, but she failed to provide any examples of fun that were actually funny. The take-away image of Mitt Romney, Neighbor, was less George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life” than Ned Flanders in “The Simpsons.”

And Sewage:

[Talk show host Michael] Savage also didn’t think Ann Romney’s portrayal of her husband Tuesday night did much for the Republican nominee’s stature in the world….Gov. Mitt Romney’s wife, he said, told “the Islamist killers, the Russian gangsters and China’s murderers that her husband, who should lead the free world, ironed his own shirt that very morning and does his own laundry.”


Anyway, that’s all behind us, and now we can look forward with great anticipation to ignoring the ‘Crat’s love fest which is so popular among the party faithful that numerous office-seekers have announced they’re not going for fear of being too closely aligned with their own President.

Can you even imagine what Joe Biden will come up with this time?  Early line: The smart money predicts with confidence he’ll top Clint Eastwood.

    Paul Lyin’. Love it.

    My personal favorite is his story about the auto plant in his hometown that closed because of Obama’s policies. Turns out it shut down in 2008 even before Obama took office. Did he even bother to check this out before saying it on an international stage? Or maybe he thought nobody would catch this fabrication? An outright lie is even worse than rank stupidity — it’s both false AND stupid.

    I find it hard to believe that you read and Michael Savage, let alone quote them. Just sayin. Meanwhile, today’s column by Paul Krugman makes the same point about Lyin’ Paul Ryan. I suspect this will be the next campaign meme.

    Yes. “President Romney. ” Sounds good.
