Here comes Jesse! My, he's on early, isn't he?
And possibly the first direct reference to Florida 2000?
Wait - hold up - did Louis Theroux just start clapping? It looked a lot like him.
Obviously, Edward Kennedy and Jesse Jackson have been given Bush attack duties this week.
(By the way, I will try and tone down the politics next week…promise)
Okay, it's Martin O'Malley, Mayor of Baltimore, talking up security. And he just appeared to have morphed into Rob Cordroy from The Daily Show. Which a little unsettling.
Hmm, they all seem to be rushing past tonight. And the gloves seem to be off; there's talk of unity, and so on, but they're directly criticising Bush now.
Dennis Kucinich And, I don't want to be too mean, but he's sounding like the clown from Animaniacs at the moment. But he is saying all the right things. He the sort of person that could never win a Presidency, but still, impressed that he never gave up, and always tried to speak up for what he believes in.
Okay, that anthem run-through was painful. Eh. Still not feeling it tonight.
AL! AL! AL! AL SHARPTON! Save me from boredom, Al! "I submit to you that if George Bush had selected the court in '54, Clarence Thomas would never have got to law school!" — zing. And now he's answering Bush's question of "do the Democrats take the black vote for granted?"
"We never got our forty acres! We didn't get the mule! So we decided to ride this donkey as far as it would take us!"
Damn, I know that he's has something of a past, but damn. He's good.
(and yes, Bonnie, it was very much a Sorkin moment)
Senator Bob Graham from Florida.
Everybody is dancing!
Hahaha — looks like Al deviated from his script somewhat. Going away for a bit now.
Back with Elizabeth Edwards, Bring on the Cheek! And they have their wedding anniversaries at Wendy's (Bonnie: "that's the most romantic thing I've ever heard")!
Here comes Mr. Edwards! The smile! No, they're not going to be quiet. Ah, so that's why they kept cutting to them, it's his mum and dad. aww. They really are going to make all they can of Kerry's military record. He's completely untouchable there. Heheh, and they're stealing the "positive" high ground. Now it's "Two Americas", to give everybody access to a good health service, excellent education, and well-paying jobs. DEATH TO OUTSOURCERS!
"We don't want people to just get by. We want you to get ahead."
heh. they watched the hotel bar scene.
and ramming it home with veteran's benefits.
"Hope is on the way." :-)
