Hungry for Red Meat?

posted by on August 26 at 15:47 PM

Some analysts thought yesterday’s convention speakers were too easy on John McCain. But Ann Richards’s daughter was doing some pointed stuff just now.

Dennis Kucinich is up now. I’ll try to keep one ear open while I work on this print piece.

Wake up, America! is the refrain. The crowd is eating this populism up. I hear tambourines.

“Up with peace! Up with prosperity! Up with the Democratic Party!” Dennis Kucinich concludes. A very noisy reception from the floor.

Tambourines? Who invited missionaries?

Yeah, who wants to hear about peace and prosperity?

Are there places I can download transcripts? I am missing the daytime speeches and I would be interested in reading Kucinich's speech. He is a bit of a pie-in-the-sky hobbit, but he has good ideas.

The tambourines are from the Women's Caucus meeting this morning, where Cecile Richards also made a great presentation, especially compared to the likes of Fran Drescher, and Rosario Dawson

Million votes gone?

Um, it's not during prime time.

I doubt it hurts.

Nice to know that someone's making some great points. Maybe some time the reporters who are at the convention could, you know, pass on what these points are.
You know, so we would be informed and stuff? With what happened? Cuz' like,you know, we're not there?

jesus fucking christ PC, what is your fucking problem? you clearly have nothing better to do than troll this blog day in day out, posting 100+ word screeds nagging others to provide you with a "winning strategy" or tell you about obama's plan for the economy because, gosh, i don't know what it is, do you? now your bitching because annie isn't providing you with a fucking play by play of a convention that is getting wall-to-wall coverage by every major news outlet in the country. you want to get informed? turn on your fucking tv and SHUT THE FUCK UP.

you do not come here to get "informed." you come here to wag your finger at all those clueless sexist naughty hillary-hatin' obama supporters. FUCK OFF.

Hey guys, chill. I was lightslogging Kucinich because I had to write a piece for the paper that was assigned an hour and a half before the deadline. I did everything I could to squeeze out this post. Please be kind. This is extremely difficult.

thanks for heads up annie. It's a shame kucinich got dropped from the Iowa tv debates because of a field office technicality issue. I'm glad to hear he got a chance to say a little.
