Every time an artist dies young- Kurt Cobain, or whatever, there's always the people "It's so sad, he had so much more to give." - How do you know? Maybe he was out of shiat. How do you know? He's done. He got all the money, he did all the drugs, he farked all your holes. And that's the American Dream, and when you're done with that you go "Oh, that's why they call it a dream. - It's bullshiat, I'm still empty." And he cashed out. How do you know what any artist had left? How do you know if Jimi Hendrix hadn't had died he wouldn't have wound up doing Superbowl half-time duets with Elton John right now?

o5iiawah: Earguy: I'm really kind of surprised Condi Rice is speaking. I got the feeling that like Colin Powell, she wasn't really interested in the political side of all this.

Most likely, the Republicans went to her and begged her to bring her black face to the convention. Less likely, a trial balloon/testing the waters for a run of her own.

You know, for all the talk of republicans supposedly being racists/bigots/misogynists, it takes a lot of temerity for dumbass liberals like yourself to slander, slur, and mock minority conservatives under the guise that they arent real people because of their political affiliation.

It is as though you'll joke in one sentence about how bigoted republicans are and then ask when Tomas Sowell and Herman cain are going to do their Amos n' Andy routine.

I'll just stick to pointing out she was a standout failure in an administration known for setting the bar for failure.

LikeALeafOnTheWind: what amazes me is the Ryan has the gall to call for people of all parties to come together and vote for him. Im all for us pulling together and uniting. So why has we been so recalcitrant and obstructionist. Whats wrong with uniting and coming together for the betterment of the country right now.. the past 3 years? Unite with President Obama to solve America's problems. Learn to govern instead of campaign. You've failed at that as a leader in congress, why should be believe you can lead in any other capacity. Governing involves compromise, at least attempting to come to win win policies that people of all ideologies can live with. Republicans are incapable of compromise at this point. This is because they honestly believe that they are doing "God's work". If your doing Gods work you cant be wrong and you cant compromise because that would be admitting that God is wrong or in some way imperfect. The current GOP is neck deep in Authoritarians, the world is Black and White, no nuance no grey area no room for compromise.
Authoritarianism is whats wrong with our country. our problems have nothing to do with conservative vs liberal all those issues that separate and divide us are a ruse to keep people preoccupied and whipped into frenzied thinking. While the folks who think they are better than everyone else, pick our pockets and steal our freedom.

Mawson of the Antarctic: Parmenius: Altitude5280: Can't wait till Biden kicks his ass in the debates.

I'm afraid that's not going to happen. Ryan is much more polished, charismatic, telegenic. With the people who want to back him, and those who just don't care about intellectual honesty, that will be enough. It's much harder to debate using mere facts and truth if all you need is bullshiat.

I'm worried you may be right. The VP debate won't sway voters but reinforce the bases. He's no Sarah.

Biden had to play nice to keep from being called a sexist. He's debating a man this time, and can unleash the fury. I don't think he's going to have Ryan drooling on the floor begging for mercy, but he sure as hell isn't going to shiat his own pants. He can put his foot in his mouth with the best of them, but he's smart as a whip and passionate about what he believes in, and that can come across very, very strongly in a debate.

I'm not defending Arizona's law which limits abortion after 18 weeks, but I do need to point out that the method Arizona used to calculate weeks of pregnancy is the commonly accepted medical practice. Doctors count forward from date of the woman's last period because she was, at that time, definitively NOT pregnant. There's plenty in the bill to be upset about, but not the part that uses actual medical science.

Last night was quite enough for me.

It all boils down to nothing but a big show.

If you want to put on a big show, take your convention to New Orleans, and help with the relief effort. Televise it, even.

If Big Government is the bogeyman, then show us all how individuals can pitch in and make our country better.

But you won't. You'll talk about the same old bullshiat you always talk about, cheer and clap, and Romney will be the candidate.

I thought Ryan was inspiring. He did a good job of defining himself outside the Obama campaign's narrative as a thoughtful, intelligent, caring individual.

I think this speech goes a long way toward validating him as an excellent pick for v.p.

What, too soon?
