Last night’s convention in 100 seconds…

 

TPM has posted a 100 second summary of last night’s DNC. I love these things:

 

Kal Penn Speaks to the convention…

Kal Penn who served for two years as Obama‘s representative to young people… he has done much more than make Harold and Kumar movies.

His speech was fun, but not carried on all the networks… so here it is:

Convention Video: The stories of our platform

 

This makes the Democratic platform have more understandable content.

 

Getting ready for the Democratic Convention…

 

Tomorrow will be the start of three days of Democrats firing up their base and showing support for Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They are in Charlotte, North Carolina, and we’ll be hearing some great speeches.

There’s been a lot of criticism of C lint Eastwood at the Republican Convention with his empty chair routine. A lot of people are suggesting that the Democrats come up with a parody attack. The leading suggestion is to have Betty White talking to Romney in an empty chair. It’s a very funny idea, but it is not going to happen.

Democrats are going to make the point that we are actually better off today than we were when George W. Bush left us in an economic mess.

Just look at how much job growth there has been in the private sector sing the Republicans (red bars) were replaced by Obama and the Democrats (blue bars.) Of course this is what the Republicans lied about last week when they said Obama had done nothing in the last 3 1/2 years.

So I hope everyone enjoys watching the convention and that independents and undecideds go for Obama/Biden and the Democratic congressional candidates.
