Wow - all the MSNBC reporters still on the floor talking with Al Franken

He's really laying it out to them. Talking about Trump's many many lies he challenged the reporters to point them out and not just let them drop.

This is the best thing I have seen on cable news in a while!

1. Everyone kinda bolted at the Trumps

Like they couldn't get out of there fast enough

3. The other part is that the lights are going out soon

When they started, they mentioned that was going to happen and they were just getting the group together before they headed out.

Blech - after that wonderful casual discussion with Franken, they just had to bring Hugh Hewit on to sour the mood.

4. Yeah Hewitt tends to leave a slick wherever he goes.

He was gracious to the First Lady but crammed in as many GOP talking points as he usually does

5. He also pisses me off since I am descended from Hewitts

Fortunately my branch changed the spelling of the name two hundred years ago so anyone who spells it the way he does is not a close relative.

That is also why I tend to leave off the final "T" - the spelling varied a lot in the early days: Hewit, Hewet, Huet, Huit, etc. None of the historic spellings are what my family ended up using.

7. Thye've been having him on regularly over the last few weeks

Since I have been watching less and less of MSNBC I can't say how much he is on but it seems like every time I turn to it there is Hewitt, or the former RNC head blathering away. I turn away before I have to hear much of what they say.

Today I watched the convention on C-Span - what a difference! I'll do that for the rest of the week.

13. Hopefully once the conventions are over so will he be

The way MSNBC has been going I won't be surprised if he becomes a regular, though. That's why God invented remote controls - the better to mute someone or change the channel completely!

16. I've been watching a lot of m$GOP because of the conventions. Once they are

Over I will stop watching it again. I need to spend my time making calls and knocking on doors anyway, not watching tv.

17. I've been trying to get in to volunteer

Between other commitments, car troubles and the heat I haven't gotten to HQ yet.

It would help if the campaign would move out of the Florida Democratic office - that place sucks for parking and accessibility. I hated it when I volunteered for the Kerry campaign and was really happy that the Obama campaign rented a different location.

Right now my husband is out of town four days a week and I am stuck driving the truck. Parking the Moby (it's white and the size of a whale) anywhere downtown is a bitch. I try to never take it anywhere near downtown but would have to if I try to volunteer on a regular basis.

9. At one point Al shut Andrea down. I don't know what she said, but he snapped "No, that's not true"

...and turned away from her leaving her gobsmacked. She literally did not speak for the next 5 or more minutes. Well that was a moment.

They are doing a shitty job and need to be called out.

12. Yeah - I didn't catch what she said either, but Franken handled her beautifully

I think Andrea is angry that Franken outranks her. She hasn't figured out that he always was smarter than she will ever be!

15. Her chin was "working" for a long time, I guess until she got control of herself again. ...

I've never seen that happen before -- after all, her face is so frozen with surgery and botox that she can barely blink, but the skin below her lower lip kept dimpling over and over and over. No other expression...

You're right: Al Franken is a very bright man.

14. :)

It was a very real moment, very open and honest, between insiders who live this stuff 24/7.

The whole evening was like a Democratic orgasm.
