I'll admit that I haven't been watching the RNC. To me it seemed to be too much like American Idol, all ceremony and no substance. Who wants to watch a bunch of white people cheer and fight to keep their tax cuts for the millions they've made defrauding the American taxpayer in little thing called the war in Iraq? Who wants to see a bunch of racists criticize Sen. Obama for being uppity? No, I'd rather write questionable blog posts based on satirical pieces I took as truth (see previous post).
But now, I don't feel so bad about being suckered in, not after I read that fake soldiers were used in a video shown at the RNC. I guess they couldn't use real soldiers because Obama nets more military donors than John McCain. I guess they remember who cut their benefits in a time of war. And that;s something that all the flag waving and questionable displays of patriotism can't cover up.
