Hit & Run

Conventional Roundup


I liked Teresa Heinz Kerry's speech better when she was defending her right to be opinionated than when she was actually expressing her opinions. Unfortunately, the opinions made up the bulk of the speech. She was still better than the grossly overrated Barack Obama: 150 pounds of hype in a focus-grouped suit.

I was hoping Ron Reagan would dance in his underwear, like he did on Saturday Night Live. Instead he told us to vote for Stem Cell Research in November. I'd like to vote for Stem Cell Research, but I'm afraid he'll take away too many votes from Kerry.

The low point was when they paraded around that poor little girl from Kids for Kerry. I'm sure she'll have a hard time living this down four years from now when she spends all her time smoking cigarettes and listening to Metallica. I couldn't bear to watch.
