Jim Sullivan doesn't believe any of it.

Jim Sullivan doesn't believe that Barack and Hillary love each other.

They don't have to love each other.

I don't care if they love each other.

I don't expect them to love each other.

As long as they pull together to get a Democrat in the White House.

Move along citizens, nothing to see here.

Dr.,

Pass the popcorn.

Thanks for the link. I appreciate it.

As much as I hate to admit..because I don't "like" Barack or Michelle Obama, I may end up voting for the Dem ticket. I'm undecided and I don't want to "waste" my vote on Barr. No offense intended, just the truth. After listening to Al Gore (I always liked him) and Hillary, it's now about the issues.

Dear Party Unity Singular Possessive Posterior,

I wound up with some tickets to the Cowboys/Vikings preseason game tonight. While that was going on, I listened to The Mommy Party's (D) convention on my radio. (Mrs. White Sep is the one who is really into football.)
I saw lots of stuff on the field that meant nothing. They were just throwing new guys out onto the field to see if they would work out. Most of them won't.

I heard lots of stuff on the radio that meant nothing. Obama was just throwing some stuff out to the crowd to see what would work. Most of it won't.

Obama could've come out strong on GLBT rights/marriage, he couldn've come out strong from reforming our idiotic drug laws, and he could've said something about bringing the troops home from the 45 nations where we're currently paying them to sit.

He didn't, despite those being issues "owned" by the Democrats.

Next week, McCain could come out strong on Free Trade, genuine Free Market agreements, school choice/vouchers, getting the insurance companies and lawyers out of my Dr.'s office, breaking the lobbyist stranglehold, and curring the size of govt by about 50%.

He won't do it, despite those issues being "owned" by the Republicans.

The main reason? These parties know you won't "waste" a vote on anyone else. (I've stopped using the term 3rd party. I'm now calling the Libertarians a 2nd party. Rep's and Dem's are the first.) You might think there's a battle going on for the soul of the nation, BS, BS, BS, but there's only a battle for driver's seat. Neither party is going to change anything significant.

The main difference between tonight's Cowboy's/Vikings preseason game and The Democratic Convention?

The football game was more significant.

This is probably going to be its own post sometime tomorrow or Saturday. Still mulling it around. Thanks for commenting.

And the previous comment had more typos and goofy sentences than should be allowed, but I'm too sleepy to retype it.
You get the idea, though.

WS - I've watched the majority of the Dem's convention this week and will probably tune in for at least part of the Rep's convention next week.

I remember watching years ago when the candidate was decided at the convention. Nowadays, with the primary process, conventions are coronations: high on theater, low on political process. Still, as a loyal Democrat (or is that "Party Unity Singular Possessive Posterior") I found it immensely satisfying. Your mileage may vary.

I forgot the popcorn this week but won't next week (I'll need something to throw).

By the way, your man Bob Barr was on Stephen Colbert this week, where he made the shocking admission that he'd been hanging with Al Gore, smoking cigars, and now believed "global warming is a fact." I was shocked!

Warning - while the clip is funny as sin, the Barr interview is towards the end of the clip.

BTW - I look forward to reading your longer comment next week. I'm sure I'll be shocked again.
