80. It's gonna be a complete knockout/bullseye/grand slam next week, if this morning is any hint.

Is there ANYONE out there who still thinks there's no difference between the two parties? I ask in all seriousness.

I've been blown away today, Skinner. I've already posted elsewhere that I was up, on my feet, my arms in the air, and crying. I couldn't catch my breath. Impressed to the point of near overwhelm with and by BOTH of them, actually. The way she explained his appeal and why she chose him, in her introduction of him. Should (even though probably it won't) silence all naysayers who carry on about her supposed "bad judgment." Fernando Amandi, the talking head on as I write this - said exactly what's going on here . He said five-to-six weeks later, people aren't gonna remember the conventions. It's the FEELING they're gonna remember. It's the FEELING that's the takeaway. And this feeling, this takeaway from OUR convention is going to be one of optimism, confidence, positivity, and MOST CERTAINLY up to the job. Which will be glaringly different from the hate and fear and negativity and doom-'n'-gloom of this last week.

This will be the ultimate game of "Who Do You Trust?" When you get down to the very brassiest of brass tacks, we will all have to ask ourselves - who do you trust with our government, the future of our nation, the future impact of our nation on the world? In all seriousness? Which team? Trump/Pence or Clinton/Kaine?

VERY basic questions:
You want fear? Okay, you want those guys.
You want confidence? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want loathing? You want those guys.
You want inclusion? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want autocratic, dictatorial, "Only I can save you"? You want those guys.
You want "we're stronger together"? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want childish and amateurish? You want those guys.
You want mature and professional? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want a shit show? You want those guys.
You want competence? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want hysteria? You want those guys.
You want steady-as-she-goes? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want it monochromatic? You want those guys.
You want every hue in the human rainbow? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).
You want "whites preferred"? You want those guys.
You want America (EVERYONE, period. Regardless the skin color, shape, age, gender, orientation, faith, nationality)? You want Clinton/Kaine (and company - don't forget the down-ticket'ers!).

By this time next Friday morning, I think what we all need to do - to everyone we know - is turn to them, smile GENUINELY and sincerely, no snark, and say: "well?"
