Happy Friday.

The best thing I can think of to say about Obama's speech is that-- well, actually how 'bout Clinton's speech? That was really something, eh?

But no, Obama's speech sucked. Guy Benson has recap:

He essentially urged voters to "stay the course," even as a large majority of voters believe our current course is badly awry. He served up a series of warmed-over promises, even as scores of already-issued ones lie unfulfilled. We were told he'd discuss entitlement reform with some specificity. He did not. He took a few shots at Republicans, but most of those seemed dialed back. He battled against the same straw-men he's been knocking down for years, to little effect.

Click over for Guy's whole thing.

Prince Harry is back in Afghanistan and instead of trying to hide it (a strategy that failed last time) the Ministry of Defence wants it in the papers: "Given the prince's proclivity for buffoonish behaviour, the military knows that publicising his deployment is a potentially risky strategy."

Now that the conventions are over, Romney is unleashing the campaign cash. Today he's starting to "carpet bomb" the airwaves in eight swing states. You can see all the ads listed here. There's three or four different permutations. They're okay.

Amazon is releasing a whole new line of Kindle products. If you're looking for a good ereader or a middle-of-the-road tablet, take a look. (But do us a favor if you buy one and click through the Amazon box in the upper right of the mainpage.)


I am so ready for the weekend.
