Monday Night at the DNC

Update: Michelle Obama looks terrific, that blue is a great color for her and her dress really showcases her super-toned arms.

"I trust Hillary to lead this country because I've seen her devotion to children, not just her own, who she has raised to perfection...Hillary has spent decades doing the relentless work to make a difference in their lives."

"When she didn't win the nomination 8 years ago, she didn't get angry or disillusioned. Hillary didn't pack up and go home."

"Hillary doesn't buckle under pressure." She never takes the easy way out. She doesn't give up.

Really great speech. Bill Clinton, in the audience, was ecstatic. So was the crowd. [More...]

Original Post

I almost turned off the convention and gave up when even C-Span started adding twitter comments to the speeches. I refuse to read comments by people I've never heard of and could care less about, as filtered by some nameless employee of a TV network whose job it is to pick out tweets he or she finds interesting. Thankfully, C-Span stopped.

I saw a few seconds of Sarah Silverman. I've never liked her crude humor or her looks. She was a Bernie supporter, but tonight said she's proud to support Hillary. She told Bernie supporters who refuse to do likewise they are being "ridiculous." The camera panned on Susan Sarandon, who I've really lost all respect for as a result of her comments this election season. I change the channel when she comes on talk shows now.

Paul Simon was an unexpected benefit, kind of like comfort food. I didn't care that his voice doesn't sound the same. The clips of Mario Cuomo were terrific. [More...]

Eva Longoria was excellent -- both the content of her speech and the delivery. She's got a long history of social activism and philanthropy, I know why she was invited.

Corey Booker was passionate. "America, we will rise."

Now, it's victimhood time. Someone who went to Trump University. Who cares? I muted her.

What both conventions tell us: The voices of a minority of mostly young and very angry malcontents are drowning everyone else out. I'm so sick of them.

Michelle Obama was just introduced. (Updates will be at the top)

    I have no problem (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    With the woman who had her savings stolen by Trump "university"

    IMO that alone would disqualify him from any public office let alone the presidency.  

    It might not seem like much unless it's your money and it's all you have.

    Millions of people (none / 0) (#3)

    are victims of some kind of fraud in this country. Why single out one? Trump hasn't been charged with a crime, I'm not willing to presume he's guilty. There are a million and one reasons to vote against Trump, this one rings petty (on the part of the DNC which asked her to speak)

    I love Michelle's speech, dissing (none / 0) (#1)

    Trump without mentioning his name. More of that please.

    Great speech so far.

    Warren getting heckled... (none / 0) (#4)

    Heckling stopped abruptly. Maybe Sarah walked up there.
