AP: Convention Confetti Covered in Bush Images 8/29/04: President Bush will literally rain down on Republican National Convention delegates Thursday night after he accepts their nomination for a second term.Creepy. Can you imagine John Kerry doing this? We want a Presidential election, not a popularity contest.
The president's picture, along with those of his wife Laura, Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne, adorns hundreds of pounds of confetti that will be dropped along with 120,000 balloons and streamers during the convention's closing minutes.
"It's something fun for delegates to sneak home in pockets and tell the kids about," said convention press secretary Leonardo Alcivar, who calls it the first time picture confetti has been used at a political convention.
