I didn't watch this week's Democratic National Convention but followed it by live blog at Daily Kos. Even allowing for the fact that coverage was provided by the same bunch of commie fag junkies who naturally dissed last week's sour (and, once Clint Eastwood had come on stage, surreal) RNC, in terms of almost everything, from message to musical accompaniment, the difference between the two events was striking, comparable to, say, the difference between Citizen Kane and Manos: The Hands of Fate (look it up). You almost would have thought the two conventions took place in separate universes, one with and the other without people of color and non-heterosexuals. Among the myriad delights: that powerhouse line-up of women -- Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Sandra Fluke, Elizabeth Warren, Gabby Giffords, Tammy Duckworth, Caroline Kennedy, Jill Biden .... The men weren't too shabby, either. A splendid time seems to have been had by all, and I wish I could have been there.
