Ten RNC observations.

September 4, 2008

1.  Is it just me, or does Sarah Palin look like a cross between Tina Fey and the Wicked Witch of the West?

2.  Fred Thompson told everyone that, while a POW, John McCain was questioned about who his fellow officers were, to which John responded with the names of the offensive line of the Green Bay Packers.  Everyone cheered.  Were they cheering because he was such a good liar?

3.  Fred also said that, because of the torture methods employed on a young sailor McCain, poor Johnny can’t raise his arms to salute the flag “that he sacrificed so much for”.  Why, then, did I see him waving his arms like a lunatic on Wednesday night?

4.  Wait – aren’t these the same torture methods that the Repugs all want to be able to use in places like Guantanamo?

5.  Bristol’s boyfriend, Levi, looks like a stooge.  I think he was paid to be at the convention.  Whenever the cameras panned to him, he looked bored out of his mind.  He must be so wishing now that he’d worn a condom.  (Bristol has probably never even heard of condoms, being the daughter of a pro-life religious freak.)

6.  How did they keep that little baby asleep through all that ruckus?  That baby had to have been drugged, plain and simple.

7.  Did anyone else cringe with me when Sarah told us, gleefully, about all of the nuclear power plants she and Johnny plan to start building in January?

8.  Remember that asshole who asked everyone to pray to god to send rain on the DNC?  Well, I hope Gustav shut that guy right up.

9.  Who the fuck names their child Trig, anyway?

10. I don’t really have a number 10.  10 is just a psychologically satisfying number.
