Build Back Better. Not exactly AAA-rated slogan. Night 3. The telethon marathon to combat TTSD. Donate now!
Hillary whining about the electoral college, Russia and misogyny again. From her tony Chappaqua den. Speaker Pelosi pontificated from her Presidio Heights manse. Lizzie at least talked about a child care plan from a school in Springfield, Massachusetts.
The former President charmingly eviscerated the current President even if adopting Trumpian ad hominem attacks. But. Obama is clearly a genuine guy so we believe his endorsement of Joe & Kamala. Democracy is at stake he says. Racism is worse than ever so vote. FOR?
A woman of color for Vice President. Uplifting personal story. Yay! Then back to grieving and loss. Structural racism still upon us. Womp. Womp. So. Why Joe? He’s a great Dad and a decent man. True.
Waiting for an actual positive upbeat agenda for the future.
Dem Convention Night 2. Americans nominating Joe Biden. Each State’s delegates reporting their votes. Like a real convention. Unfortunately most networks didn’t show it. Anchors and talking heads more important than the real people they purport to care about. Sad.
Bill Clinton has lost his sex appeal along with his voice. Even recent articles about his rides on the Lolita Express seem so limp. Sad.
The rest of the night was devoted to Joe & Jill mostly talking about Beau. Stilted. Maudlin. Poor Hunter. The whole convention so far. Sad.
Dem Convention kicked off with a rinky dink production replete with bad sound and video. Most of the pre-taped pieces had already been discussed on cable news well before they aired.
Andrew Cuomo’s Covid as metaphor of incompetence recalled his father Mario’s poetry. No matter the NY nursing home debacle.
Michelle Obama’s keynote capper was starkly dark and depressing on Trump’s fomenting chaos and division. From her Martha’s Vineyard library. Her description of Joe Biden was not particularly inspiring either. She didn’t mention Kamala at all. Hmmmm.
Fired up? Hope? Nope. More a somber series of testimonials on the Country’s ills. Hardly uplifting. Mostly unwatchable.
