By the way, take a gander at the Murderer's Row of talent the Democrats have scheduled for next week:

Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin

Newark Mayor Cory Booker

Former President Jimmy Carter (via video) (?!?!?)

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, who will be the first Latino keynote speaker at a Democratic National Convention (he's the keynoter, not Clinton? Um, okay)

Former President Bill Clinton (ah, so Clinton speaks last, and is therefore the keynoter)

Former Republican Governor of Florida Charlie Crist (also, "Former Independent, Current Bunghole")

Former Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Tammy Duckworth

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Georgetown Law School Graduate Sandra Fluke (Oh she's a graduate now? Wow. They got a Law School Graduate!!!)

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (Hope she talks about her state's amazing turnaround... under a different governor)

Former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine

Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California (awesome)

President of NARAL Pro-Choice America Nancy Keenan (this should be good)

Caroline Kennedy (noted orator and layabout)

Women’s rights activist Lilly Ledbetter (also good)

Obama Campaign Co-Chair Eva Longoria (was a TV "star" like five years ago)

U.S. Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts (another Human Highlight Film)

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (ummm...)

U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, together with the women of the U.S. Senate (Gee, I wonder what this evening's theme is? Besides leghair)

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (beloved)

President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund Cecile Richards (another one... they've got a lot of eggs in this Abortion is Awesome basket)


Journalist Cristina Saralegui (They got a Journalist... almost as good as a Law School Graduate)

Los Angeles Mayor, Democratic Convention Chair Antonio Villaraigosa (running his city smooth as silk)

Senate candidate from Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren (need big wampum)

U.S. Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina (she dared to come?)

I omitted all the ones I never heard of or barely heard of.

Anyway, should be a real hoot.

Click on the link above that list and you'll see some complaints by Democrats-- that the DNC is actually attempting a very white convention, because, I guess, they want to appeal to undecided whites.

So... Racism? You be the judge.

Excerpts... From Romney's speech. Some pungency here:

President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. MY promise...is to help you and your family.

From what I read, it's a more lovey-dovey humanizing speech than I would want, but I don't fear; I'm pretty sure he's holding the tough stuff back, so it's fresh when he delivers it.

You don't telegraph your blows, after all.

No one reading Ryan's excerpts would have realized what a thorough skull-f***ing he planned to deliver.

Here's one sharp line:

"If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn't you feel that way now that he's President Obama? You know there's something wrong with the kind of job he's done as president when the best feeling you had, was the day you voted for him."

Again, going directly after Obama's strength.
