With just ABC, CBS, and PBS available out here in the boondocks, I have not seen all of the time spent on the GOP convention, but what I have seen is one lie after another strung together with a lot of hypocritcal references to God, compassionate conservatism and on an on.
Right now I am hearing Mr. Frist call Senator John Kerry "Mr. Kerry" who is destroying American medicine by putting a trial lawyer on the tiicket with him. Sure would not want to mention all the money that HMOs and huge hospital chains and huge insurance companies bleed out of the system.
However, it does not make much difference what the topic is. Every thing said is a test of a listeners gullibility and tolerance for logically impossible combinations of positions and issues.
Were the GOP convention speeches given in a mental institutions, the speakers would be hauled off in straight jackets for medication.
Stay tuned to a weblog near you even if the blogger is being put to sleep by the blather...Say good night...))))) Doug Wiken
