4/10. It was decidedly mediocre. I never realized what a weak speaker McCain is. Only febrility was a denunciation of Michael Moore, which prompted "Bullshit" and "Four More [Moore?] Years" chants.
Substantively, a lot of dissembling, Bush challenged, resolve, 9/11, stood on pile of rubble, resolve, 9/11.
Had his heart been in it, he could have done a vicious "Brutus is an honorable man" on John Kerry. The GOP already uses "honorable" as a virtual slur. I guess we dodged a bullet.
I hope he heard about the purple heart bandaids - convention delegates are mocking purple heart recipients with emblazoned bandaids. Par for the course. McAuliffe wants a denunciation, Bob Dole rationalized it - "Party has no control" over the official delegates, "Democrats did the same stuff." Bastards.
Update: Purple Heart Bandaids. I reiterate: bastards.
