Presidential Acceptance Speech Moved Indoors

Those free tickets you picked up at Manuel’s last week (or at the Bibb Democratic HQ) aren’t any good. Don’t blame the Republicans blame the weather, or George W. Bush.


  1. Obi's Sister says:

    What? You’re tellin’ me that the spin-masters at the DNC couldn’t use the weather forecast to conjure up some suitable imagery of ObamaZeus or ObamaThor or ObamaAlienDeathStar or ObamaCylonElectricFingers? How are they going to fit the styrofoam Mount Olympus and the MegatronSmokeMachine through the doors of that itty-bitty arena?


  2. Trey A. says:

    Or maybe he’s still pissed that his name was omitted from the Constitution. At least Ted Strickland quoted the Gospel… That Strickland speech made me wonder why the Democrats don’t use that type of messaging more in the South.

    • John Vestal says:

      It was supposed to be in the Constitution, but there was a typo or a hard drive crash or a virus or something. Just ask David Barton, he’ll ‘splain the whole thing.

  3. gcp says:

    Perhaps John Edwards will motor in from his six million dollar N.C. mansion to give his famous “two Americas speech.”

  4. Daddy Got A Gun says:

    Why doesn’t Barack take a break from holding the oceans down and healing the earth, to stop the drizzle for one day. Surely planet earth can survive one day without Barack’s attention.

    • Engineer says:

      I wonder if I was the only one that noticed that NBC, CBS, ABC, & CNN’s coverage used a lot of tight shots of the crowds near the middle. When I checked on Fox News, they were using a lot of wide shots and let me tell you, it was quite interesting how empty the stadium looked.

        Most conventions don’t have many people there until later on when the “good” speakers come on stage. I’ve seen a lot of empty venues over the years when the news organizations will actually pan the camera over the entire seats.

    • SallyForth says:

      @Calypso, you got that right. There were rumors last week that it would be moved back indoors because the Dems could not round up (even busing from out of state) enough people to fill a big football stadium like they did in 2008. Like B.B. King sang, “The thrill is gone, baby.”

      At certain levels of BS processing, (Patch Folk know it as Brian’s Science)

      open areas are required by EPA and OHSA mandates…
