What genius thought sticking this semi-senescent fossil out there to engage in this self-indulgent tomfoolery was a good idea?
This is one of the most baffling things I've ever seen at a Convention.
Update: From the truly bizarre, Eastwood, to dull and duller. I thought Rubio's introduction speech was banal, cliche-ridden, and absolutely unoriginal. Not a hint of poetry in it. Pretty underwhelming.
As for Romney, it really didn't strike me as much of a speech either. There was no substance to it, he repeated the "apology tour" canard, and it just didn't really have much in the way of hooks. Again, it was a poorly written -- or at best mediocre -- with no memorable lines that I heard. (Folks on MSNBC are being kinder than I am being, but I have watched a lot of nomination acceptance speeches and this was the worst I've heard since Carter's in 1980.)
I thought the Republicans had a much better night last night, notwithstanding Ryan's problems with the truth. The line up of Rice, Martinez, and Ryan gave at least the illusion of a party with energy, diversity, and brains.
I don't see what they were trying to accomplish tonight and I sure don't see a lot of bounce coming out of it.
What say you?
