First Impressions of the Third Night of the DNC

There seems to be a pattern forming here...

1) Kicking off the day's festivities was a respectful flag presentation and a very good rendition of the National Anthem. The only thing I found funny? The guy singing the National Anthem looked like a Native American version of Elvis. Having said that, Chief Hunka-Hunka-Burnin'-Love is a heck of a singer...

2) Harry Reid is talking about how George W. Bush failed to deal with the oil shortages and is going with much of the same crap we've heard from the Left for years. But I'm not sure he realizes that his counterpart in the House, Nancy Pelosi, shut down debate on lifting the Congressional ban on offshore drilling a few weeks ago, which actually is hurting the American people more than he says George W. Bush is. Does he? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah...

3) Here's my impression of Hillary Clinton's speech last night: IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII [Vote for Obama] MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEME [Bush sucks] IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII [Vote for Obama] Thank you! Good night!

4) Back to Reid for a moment. He's giving his speech...and it sounds like nobody's listening. And his attempt to paint McCain's energy plan as a snake oil salesman is falling on deaf ears, and rightfully so. I'm pretty sure Reid has a lot of experience with such people, considering he's parroting Al Gore's lies...

5) Remember the old TV show "B. J. and the Bear" with Greg Evigan and a chimp? I was reminded of that when I heard tonight's two big speakers were Bill Clinton and Joe Biden. If the two of them were to do a TV show, the title should be "B. J. and the Bore."

6) More yelling instead of speaking. Folks, let me tell you a secret of public speaking. If you have to shout, it's usually to hide a weak message behind an illusion of strength. With the yelling I've heard so far at the DNC, it doesn't bode well for Obama.

7) The quote of the night so far came from a retired former Command Sgt. Major of the U. S. Army Reserve as it pertains to Obama's leadership with the military. "Senator Barack Obama's record speaks for itself." My response: "Yes, but not in the way you think."

8) Is it just me, or has the DNC done a little as possible to talk about Obama? This has to be troubling to the Obama campaign because this is supposed to be his coronation. Instead, it's turning into one big me-fest. Funny how it was exactly like this in 2004. And we all know that one turned out...

9) Speaking of Obama, I saw pictures of the stage he'll be using tomorrow night and it looks like a cross between the pillars you see in a Hercules movie and the White House. In either case, it could be a major debacle for someone who has been accused of being elitist.

10) Madeline Albright lecturing us about bad foreign policy is like having Bill Clinton lecture John Edwards about marital fidelity.

11) Evan Bayh went from moderate Democrat to DailyKosmonaut in 2 minutes. I know he's at the DNC, but could he at least speak without George Soros's hand up his ass?

And just so we have an even dozen...

12) Have you noticed all the chanting going on at the DNC? It's almost like the Democrats are holding a religious service for their leader, the great and powerful Barack. Next time a Democrat tells you that you're a "mind-numbed Bushbot" tell them to review the tape of the DNC and count the number of times the "free thinking" and "intelligent" Democrats act like Pavlov's dogs in an alarm clock factory.

That's all for now. Maybe more later.
