Whenever we get too high-hat and too sophisticated for flag-waving, some thug nation decides we're a push-over all ready to be blackjacked.

Dean's quick advice to the Democrats on how to have a successful convention--

Wrap it in the flag - Dems get killed every convention on this simple issue. Old glory needs to be EVERYWHERE. Not just on the giant digital display but actual flags. Flags need to permeate the crowd, clutter the stage and fill every nook and cranny of the center.

Make it about McCain - I'll never forget the talk leading up to both of the last major party conventions that they would be kindler, gentler affairs that focused on their own candidate. Instead both conventions would up focusing on Kerry- one buiding him up then the other trashing him. Dems need to trash McCain in at least a 60/40 ration to talking about Obama.

Youth and change - That's what Obama is selling and that's what the convention ought to be adverstising.

What surge? - Don't even discuss the surge when talking about Iraq. Instead focus again on the fact that the initial war was an act of sheer foreign policy idiocy. Anyone that supported that war doesn't have the judgement to be talking about foreign policy or national defense. Period. Bonus- make sure you mention Lieberman by name when pushing this.

I am watching the convention. David Brooks just called Pelosi's speech "cliche ridden."

What a shock?!

O wind , why do you never rest,

Wandering, whistling to and fro,

Bring rain out of the west,

From the dim north bringing snow?

60/40? Bah. Let's make it 90/10. I want fireworks! blood! carnage! Drag McCain's dessicated corpse upon the stage and dance on it! That'd be the kindest, gentlest thing we could do for America!

You know what I just heard on the TV behind me, as UberYounger watches "Spongebob?"

"Someone should put you on a box and float you down the river, grandma!"

Change grandMA to grandPA, and I think we have the Dem's anti-McCain slogan!

Biden > Bayh > Kaine

swine-

In fairness I think the media thirst for a horserace always seems to help republicans.

franiam-

Brooks should know. The man's never had an original thought.

randal-

Drag his corpse? I like the cut of your jib.

ubermilf-

Ha! You should be working for the campaign. The Spongebob voter would be a lock.
