What I'm Loving Tonight at the DNC: Casey, Hillary, And Grayson




Bob Casey Jr., while not the greatest speaker in the world, had the line of the night, and possibly the year:
John McCain votes with Bush 95% of the time.  That's not a maverick - that's a sidekick!
If there is any one meme I would love to see circulated and repeated over and over again in this presidential campaign, that would be it.  It simultaneously demolishes McCain's"maverick" reputation and ties the Dubyatross around his neck where it belongs.


Kickass, nail-cheaters-to-the-wall, progressive Blue America Democrat Alan Grayson demolished establishment DCCC tool Charlie Stuart in the FL-08 primary, 48%-27%.  This can only be good for centrist Democrats!



Hillary 4 Obama!
I haven't spent the past 35 years in the trenches, advocating for children, campaigning for universal healthcare, helping parents balance work and family, and fighting for women's rights, here at home and around the world... to see another Republican in the White House squander our promise of a country that really fulfills the hopes of our people.
And you haven't worked so hard over the last 18 months, or endured the last 8 years, to suffer through more failed leadership.  No way, no how, no McCain.
Barack Obama is my candidate, and he must be our president.
And then she referred to her "Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pantsuits."


Also: Brian Schweitzer was great, full of energy and charisma and mischief.  I had the same reaction as Christy - why the hell wasn't he the keynote???
