coco ebert: theteacher: The hall seems so empty.Quite an echo, ain't it?
noblewolf: /I'm being serious. How are women going to suffer.
SweetBluebonnet: StewPie: Biden will absolutely annihilate this little sanctimonious twerp.Biden could roll around on the floor in his own waste and Democrats would claim it as a victory.
Graffito: otto the bull: Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Paul Rand, Ron Paul, Ayn Rand.It's like there is a letter shortage.
AverageAmericanGuy: This is what Kurt Cobain would be doing today if he hadn't blown his brains out.
Will-Mun: I think if James Madison was here today he would
Will-Mun: Is it me or is this crowd very luke warm?
Cletus C.: I thought
DamnYankees: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Three-Fifty: Especially since she is one of those people who suddenly goes crazy and pronounces her last name with rolled Rs and nonsense.It doesn't bug me, but I do get a kick out of people who speak without an accent until they speak their own name or something along those lines, and then whip it out.This was a running joke on Married...with Children 20 years ago.
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.
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.
toejam: Obama and Biden are going to destroy these guys in the debates. It will be fun to watch.
StewPie: He is one horrible speaker.
Kurohone: That's twice now that the speeches have gone on about how awesome Mitt's marriage is, with the obvious implication that Obama's isn't. This seems a strange tack to be taking...
DamnYankees: This speech is really farking long.
Will-Mun: Dude has no right talking about the musical selection of the campaign with the lineup of shiat they had tonight.
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.
ActualFarkal: Robert Plant and Angus Young are farking pissed right now.
AverageAmericanGuy: Ryan, if you say one thing now, you will have my vote.'We will eliminate the TSA on Day 1.'
MojoFraggle: Please, please please please.. someone compile a video of all of Ryan's grunts. PLEASE!
WizardofToast: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Heh, Ryan couldn't even say "the Bush administration". Just "the years before that". What a smarmy ass.The last 30 years according to Republicans:1980: REAGAN!1988: H.W.!1992: BOOO CLINTON!2000: Something something grumble grumble2008: BOOO OBAMA!
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Heh, Ryan couldn't even say "the Bush administration". Just "the years before that". What a smarmy ass.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: "We don't have that much time"I've been noticing more and more of this quasi-millennial thought processes from the Bagger crowd. When questioned about what happens after (insert whatever year here, usually 2016) it's never quite consistent. My local Paulian says that the "islamic states" (whatever they are) will sneak Sharia law into our society and our debt will allow that to happen.But yeah. Some very "fall of rome" thinking going on.
mark625: Oh jeez. Now Obama's responsible for the Euro debt crisis.W.T.F.
coeyagi: Another lie: credit downgrading was Obama's fault.Jesus Christ, you are a piece of dogsh*t, Ryan.
bdub77: The camera guys are looking around for colored people.
The Bestest: IIIT'S TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME.. for the MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!
DamnYankees: Has anyone else noticed how EVERY speaker at this convention apparently lived in poverty and brought themselves to this place by hard work and effort? Remarkable how this party has evidently no leaders who were born into any money at all.
Spare Me: Sure as shiat, left wingers dissing Condileeza Rice, ex Secretary of State, an African American woman from Birmingham Alabama.
bobbette: Whoa NBC just cut off Condi's speechWHOA
ActualFarkal: Rice/Christie 2016! Snap Crackle and Pop the vote!
bdub77: Seriously f*ck you Huckabee. Obama lived up to his Nobel Prize. Ended a war in Iraq. Killed bin laden and effectively destroyed Al Queda. Didn't invade any further countries, toppled dictators in some cases rather peacefully.
DeltaPunch: It's very telling, no? They take an Obama sound byte out of context to make it seem like he was saying the opposite of what he intended, and the GOP build the ENTIRE theme of their RNC around it.
Edsel: Do these people actually know that Paul Ryan has never had a real private sector job?
Graffito: Didn't he retire to Paraguay? That's one of his body doubles living at that ranch.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Here comes Huckabee. This should be interesting.
King Something: More country music
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: jasenj1: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats:MSNBC is, no doubt, covering the convention better than anyone else.C-SPAN all the way.MSNBC is getting a lot more follow-up interviews with people on the floor. C-SPAN is basically setting down a camera and filming, which is fine, but lacks depth.
Imperialism: Every chant that anyone has tried to start has been amusingly terrible. Out of sync, not much participation. Fun stuff.
King Something: Music's finished, now back to old white men reading off of a teleprompter.
Will-Mun: Hey, Farkers drinking at every "We built it" How many fingers am I holding up?[markyoungtrainingsystems.com image 300x400]
theknuckler_33: I'm now flipping between the convention and "Here comes Honey Boo Boo"
otto the bull: Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Paul Rand, Ron Paul, Ayn Rand.
theknuckler_33: Will-Mun: theknuckler_33: Damned, I just watched about 3 minutes of McCain's speech and I'm already bleeding from my ears. How the fark are you guys taking this?Most Farkers? Copious amounts of Alcohol.Me? My overall cynicism has left me with a thick skin... and the thread makes me smile.I'm now flipping between the convention and "Here comes Honey Boo Boo"
Altitude5280: Maddow:"McCain never mentioned Osama Bin Laden. " /Can you just imagine the rhetoric if Osama was still alive?
Dull Cow Eyes: The weirdest thing about McCain's speech is that he's repeatedly saying that he trusts Mitt Romney...except he distrusted him so much 4 years ago that he chose Sarah Palin to be his VP choice.
The Great EZE: Jesus Christ, John, you sure love war for being a former POW.I don't recall him being that much of a hawk in 2008./Yes, I remember the song.
Itstoearly: One thing democrats will never understand is that those of us who believe in small government don't vote for things like equal pay, not because we don't believe in equal pay, but because we don't believe that government should have that level of power. But they want to pass all these laws that give the government power, and don't have the foresight to think "what will the republicans do with this power when they are in the majority?" This is shortsightedness and foolishness.//Libertarian, not republican
AverageAmericanGuy: Will-Mun: Lost our faith in faith itself?What the fark am I listening to!?You're blessed to be able to listen to this faithful song.
noblewolf: The Republicans maybe a religious wing nuts, but they are not the Taliban.
alizeran: Boner will be invisible against that backdrop.
King Something: I started typing my response to your response to what I wrote without refreshing, so I didn't see your response to your response, nor your response to THAT response. So please don't put too much stock in my response to your response./response
sprawl15: Yes! Now we get to watch two bushes rub up against eachother.
AverageAmericanGuy: Really? Romney is better than your own dad, RAND? Do you really think that?
crotchgrabber: Convention goers like to wear lots of flare.
Jekylman: CynicalLA: Why would anyone watch that crap. Watching people lie their asses off doesn't seem like good entertainment.You're on Fark.
Will-Mun: How many anecdotes does this man have?
King Something: No tape delay here.
Will-Mun: I think if James Madison was here today he would be less concerned about Healthcare and more interested in "HOLY fark! What is this magic screen that has captured my image?!"
quizzical: Pochas: nIn Arizona, republicans have created what I call a Schrodinger's womb. In Arizona a woman is now legally pregnant two weeks before conception. But she isn't actually pregnant. But legally she is. So she both is and is not pregnant until she has sex, then the wavefunction collapses.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.
Fritriac: sprawl15: See, the difference between Americans and Europeans is that Europeans suck.[imgs.xkcd.com image 500x271]
SharkInfested: Yeah, no. Barely stopped myself from doing unspeakable things to the television last night. It won't survive Day 2 of Derpapalooza 2012./fighting masochistic urge to watch//help me..
Skarekrough: I could stomach last night with some good humor. You Farkers got me through it.Tonight....I just can't do it. I just can't sit through so much BS for so long.It's Bourbon and the second season of "The Young Ones" for me.
poot_rootbeer: Sorry, everyone under 40's talking about Obama's Reddit appearance today.Better luck in '16, GOP.
bsharitt: I can't wait to hear the GOP's bold plan to restore America!
noblewolf: Frank and Beans: Republicans are waging a War on Women.Other than the abortion issue, how are they waging a war on women? Are they removing the right to vote? Are they loosing jobs if the Republicans win? Exactly what are they going to loose?I'm interested in your facts on the issue./I'm being serious. How are women going to suffer.
CynicalLA: Why would anyone watch that crap. Watching people lie their asses off doesn't seem like good entertainment.
sprawl15: AdolfOliverPanties: It is said that Rice and McCain are there to draw contrast with Obama's foreign policy.I'm actually kind of surprised Rice agreed to show up to this clusterfark.Also, THEY LET A MUSLIN ON STAGE TO PRAY OMG
AdolfOliverPanties: It is said that Rice and McCain are there to draw contrast with Obama's foreign policy.
sprawl15: A Bush 41, 43 film? Let me get my tissues.
Frank and Beans: Republicans are waging a War on Women.
