Republicans Attempt To Dupe The Television Watchers

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.

The militaristic aura and the mindless crowd chanting was something I could do without...

It was almost painful to watch. First Rudy gets up there and makes a fool of himself, then Plain gives a nice talk and seems like a real person, then it all went to hell. It was without question the tackiest event I have ever witnessed, with the exception of my first wedding.

Those speeches by Palin and Giuliani were the most repulsive things I've seen in a long time. I kept trying to tell myself that they're just preaching to the choir. But every time one of those assholes came up with another mindless jab at Obama and the crowd cheered and roared, I just got more and more pissed off.

And I didn't even watch the whole thing; just a small part of it on C-Span.
