John Kerry addressed the Democratic Convention last night.
He was introduced with a biographical film including home movies
he took of himself in Vietnam. John Kerry lived in the only
Quonset hut in Southeast Asia with a star on the door.
The Democratic Convention closed with balloons and
pandemonium Thursday. The coverage was hilarious. At one point NBC
News showed old clips of Jesse Jackson, Gary Hart, Teddy Kennedy
and Bill Clinton and then cut to a commercial for Fidelity.
Democrats leave the convention today after an unprecedented
display of party unity. It was weird. The Democrats were almost
too well-behaved considering they were in Boston, a city whose
nickname in England will forever be Fallujah by the Bay.
The Fleet Center in Boston was under strict security all
week. The only food allowed to be sold in the convention was
Dunkin Donuts and McDonald's. The Kerry plan for energy
independence begins by increasing our dependence on hydrogenated oil.
Democrats held a roll call vote Wednesday as delegation
chairmen bragged about their states before voting. It got very
ugly. The tension mounted as every other state claimed to be the
home of last year's national champions in college football.
Teresa Heinz Kerry wearily defended her right to be
opinionated in her speech Tuesday night. The woman's had a hard
life. She's been married to one Republican U.S. Senator and one
Democratic U.S. Senator and neither one would take the garbage out.
John Edwards warned Republicans in his speech Wednesday that Americans would reject the hateful negative politics of the past. He's absolutely right. Thanks to Michael Moore, Americans now demand their hateful negative politics with popcorn.
