In the discussion thread: Nina Turner's credentials revoked? [View all]

Response to DURHAM D (Reply #41)

60. I believe she's a former legislator.

Former state senator from Missouri, I think. First distinguished herself during the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson MO, but since then she's grown more and more overbearing and in-yer-face. And while the general vibe has been to try to tone down all the vapors and the heat, she seemed grimly determined to amp it up the other way, just piling on the negativity and the irritation, just hellbent on trying to stir shit up.

It's a shame, because the Democratic Convention reached a really nice turning point today - what with Bernie's gesture in the Vermont delegation, and the effusive acknowledgement of all those Bernie supporters - noting that state-by-state, one of his surrogates had the microphone to salute him, praise him, and announce his vote totals. I believe it was Nina Turner who groused yesterday that there'd been no acknowledgement of their side or their people. I honestly don't see how the facts back that up, especially today. EVERYBODY was part of the party. Bernie was celebrated in all 50 states and territories and DC. Cheered, given his place in the spotlight, plenty of Q&As with his supporters who the floor reporters seemed to seek out to the exclusion of anyone else, including Hillary supporters.

I kept waiting for somebody to shush those rude hecklers who yelled over John Lewis, Elijah Cummings, and Cory Booker. SUCH disrespect. What was so DOGGONE important that they felt they had to be rude like that? SHAME on them!!! If they got ejected or had their credentials yanked, I'd jump for joy!

This was a genuine feel-good evening with a big-time gesture by Bernie at the end. Do we always have to have somebody peeing in the pickle barrel? We get so few upbeat evenings like this, particularly in the news. Why ruin it? Why should a few try to ruin it for the vast majority of attendees who had so much to celebrate - while making history too?

Even someone who simply MUST yell all the time - has to stop and take a breath every so often.
