Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Et tu, Fred and Joe
Last nights theme at the Republican National Convention was "Country First." The signs could have just as well read "Hypocrisy First"!
President Bush referred to Democrats as the angry left via satellite at the White House. His address was surprisingly and blessedly short. But, has he not heard? McCain is known for his temper!
Fred Thompson said he will take a woman who has governed the largest state in the union over someone so lacking in experience as Barack Obama. After all, he said, Shes run a municipality and shes run a state. I can say without fear of contradiction, shes the only nominee in the history of either party who knows how to field dress a moose. How offended should Americans be at that qualification?
I fell asleep on Joe Lieberman. Woke up only to angrily click the off button. As I rolled over to present my television with my backside, my last lucid thought was, I just exposed myself to cult activity! They blatantly lied to the people at that convention and those watching. And received cheers and congratulations for the effort. Lieberman stated, Sen. Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man who can do great things for our country in the years ahead. But eloquence is no substitute for a record not in these tough times. In the Senate he has not reached across party lines to get anything significant done, nor has he been willing to take on powerful interest groups in the Democratic Party. I guess well find out tonight if Sarah Palin is even eloquent ...
