Republican Ketchup
Missed the last 2 days due to a summer blizzard of deadlines. I stayed home this week to make money. So I played ketchup last night. Can't keep coming up wth lint! Yelling at the kids during Bush's speech cause he gets me that way. Then watching pundits and Kerry's oh-shit-I-better-say-something speech until I passed out from boredom and round-the-clock-writing exhaustion.

Stuff to peep:

+"Bush is a no-tax, still-spend "conservative," which means he's spent more than Clinton while decimating the treasury w/ tax cuts. Waytago!" From Farai Chideya's annotated guide to Bush's speech.

+"America," he proclaimed from that altar-like podium, "is called to lead the cause of freedom in the new century....Freedom is not America's gift to the world. It is the Almighty God's gift." From David Corn on Bush's Mission From God.

+""I will not have my commitment to defend this country questioned by those who refused to serve when they could have and who misled America into Iraq". From Kerry's speech last night. About time he defended himself. He was starting to look like a sorry-ass mark.

+"These people have already been the victims of a process." A quote from State Supreme Court Judge John Cataldo. From Sarah Ferguson at the Village Voice. Andre 3000 was apparently waiting in the crowd on a crew member who was among those released yesterday.

+"There never have been so many people arrested in the history of our 80 political conventions in the United States." From Tom Hayden. Quoted in Newsday.

+"This morning, the Labor Department quietly released data showing that new unemployment claims rose by 19,000 last week, a number Bush will likely be far too manly to mention when he takes the stage tonight." Esther Kaplan on the economic girly-men beat. BTW the new economic numbers hit today...more soon.

+"Truly inspiring. His powerful message was conveyed with the gravitas and charisma of Kindergarten Cop and the rippling eroticism of Conan the Barbarian." Ed Helms on Arnold's speech.

+"You've got to tell the delegates what they want to hear in order to win them over. Politicians always talk the way it fits into their agenda," an Austrian waitress on Schwarzenegger's bizarro history of Austria.

+"I really wish the GOP had scheduled Alan Keyes as a speaker. Now that would have been really entertaining." From Notes from a Different Kitchen

+"Dissing Michael Moore? Why not, I feel like doing it myself sometimes. But biting Saturday Night Live and "Jump?" Offensive. Unforgivably wack." From Hua.

+Bonus: Jay Smooth grokking the Twins. Be easy on em yall--they're crack babies!
