Don't get me wrong - I didn't disagree with any of the sentiments Ryan advocated - but when I had to whince every time he said, "Mitt Romney and me," because, not only do I dislike the head of the ticket with a passion, but it's bad english, well, let's just say Glenn Reynolds (or the Democrats) should be hawking t-shirts that say "Apparently math ain't the ONLY thing that's hard!"
Susana Martinez saying, "Damn, I guess we ARE Republicans!" was funny - during that one line - and Condi did o-kay, which is weird (I know so-called "people of color" aren't the only ones capable of talking with style and vigor <--Yeah, I'm a Kennedy now) but the night for the most part was a bust, which I know people are going to claim is a result of my deep animosity for Romney, rather my long emersion in a culture that loves verbal dexterity, as well as the conservative's own election year blinders. Like Obama - who they seem to want to emulate in every way this year - they can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.
Well, actually the Right *might* be able to:
If I remember correctly, there's a certain "pig wearing lipstick" out there known for knocking 'em dead,...
You weren't the only one to notice this -- at least the pauses, if not the bad grammar (which is a telling thing; many on the right seem to think you get a pass for doing well in math and science and can act like a troglodyte with everything else)-- some right leaning pundits noticed that the speakers seem to have been coached to the point of zero personality.ReplyDelete
Of course I find this highly amusing, as one of the accusations leveled against that pig in lipstick was that she was a poor speaker (granted, that accent needed some softening, but she was a very effective speaker).
