And Now, the Democrats


Taking center stage (or is it the middle ring?) last evening, the Democratic National Convention kicked off to highlight the other guys in direct opposition to last week.

Despite the pre-convention hype, it was pretty much a carbon copy of the previous week's opening night. 

Here are the similarities:

- The party is struggling for unity amidst allegations of favoritism during the primary season. 

- They party is presenting the American people with a flawed candidate for President.

- Instead of an actor providing some opening day remarks they included an impassioned speech by an 11-year old girl.

- The candidate for the other party was vilified, repeatedly.

- There was precious little mention of the "how" behind the statements.

- True facts (or mostly true) were taken out of context to infer situations which are not true.

More of the same? It sounds like it. American politics has devolved into a game of "he said--she said, literally!

Standing by for night two! And more, probably of the same.
