Dammit, MSNBC!

There we were, listening to Clinton's talk from Pennsylvania. Then you cut in to tell us what she was saying rather than allowing us to continue listening to her directly.

Do you seriously wonder why you lose viewers?

And of course the conversation now turns to Trump.


Once more with feeling: LIBERAL MEDIA MY ASS!

Silver spoons

Some silver spoons do good work, others not so much.

Donald Trump was born with every advantage. He’s never gone hungry, never had to sleep under the stars because he lacked a roof, never been denied a doctor’s care when it was needed, never shivered in the cold for want of a coat. He’s had everything, and spent his life acquiring more. With all that, there’s one thing he’s never experienced, and it shows. All his money, all his properties, all his holdings can’t buy it for him, yet it’s visible in abundance in the people who live in his city, in his state, in the country he wants to own. It’s clearly present with every speaker in Philadelphia, yet Donald Trump has never found it profitable to experience the one thing he clearly chooses not to invest in — gratitude.

It's none of his body parts that are too small.

Is a puzzlement.

I was raised by 1950s conservatives.

It seems strange to say that, considering today’s iteration of that perspective. Mom and Dad weren’t racist, they taught us that hate is wrong, they never told us to fear people who are different, they encouraged us to welcome newcomers and to help those in need.

Is a puzzlement: either conservatives have changed or the dictionary has.

MASSIVE appreciation for C-span!

What a pleasure to watch the convention and listen to the speakers without pundits interrupting to explain what I'm perfectly capable of understanding without their help. Also don't miss having an awaited speech interrupted to share the latest fulmination from Comrade Trump.

THANK YOU, C-SPAN!

Michelle Obama

just delivered with wit, grace, and class a breathtaking counterpoint to the entire RNC.
