The Republicans are trying to have their convention and there have been a couple of problems. First, there was Hurricane Gustav. McCain said he didn't wan to be celebrating when people were suffering. Now, I never thought of a convention as a celebration. I thought it was about the business of agreeing on a platform and affirming your party's candidate. I know some of it is fun for them but really? cancel for a storm? I was a little surprised. Whatever. They did have a shortened version of the convention on the first day and Cindy McScarecrow and Mrs. Bush made an appearance together to ask the convention to support the victims of the hurricane. However it might have been more effective if Cindy didn't have on a dress that looked like a queen's gown(someone near and dear to me noticed the similarity) and Laura didn't look like the queen of England next to her but again I say whatever.
Second, President Bush wants to make an appearance and the party is hesitant so they finally gave him 8 minutes of a remote from the White House. Pretty funny that even his own party doesn't want him anymore. They prefer his wife....don't we all? However I did hear that 70% of Republicans still think Bush is doing a good job. THEY DO??????????????
Third, protesters are everywhere and they are so wild and crazy that the police have had to use tear gas and make arrests. These insane protesters are against, are you ready for this?...... POVERTY! How dare they?? Poverty is a necessary evil and if you are poor you should just pull yourself up by your bootstraps(as Obama says, even if you don't have any boots..he was being sarcastic).
Tonight Sarah Palin makes her speech. Yikes, she's got a lot of 'splainin' to do!!! I can hardly wait!!
