Democratic Convention 2008

Obama Speaks!


I'm not alarmed by the giant stadium of 75,000 devoted followers of a politician. But I am a little freaked out by when that crowd starts to chant.

UPDATE: Chant #1: "Eight is enough." True. Constitutionally speaking, true indeed.

NEXT: In case you're wondering if there really are a lot of people at Invesco

  1. Really? Is the economy so bad right now?

  2. NUREMBERG !!!

  3. I like to be “on my own” Mr Obama.

  4. he said that drilling is a stop gap measure. Isn’t that what Paris Hilton said a few weeks ago?

  5. Chant #1: “Eight is enough.”

    Personally, I always preferred “Family Ties”. But it’s a free country and people are entitled to their differing opinions.

  6. It’s amazing that someone can graduate from Harvard, and live in the University of Chicago’s neighborhood and be so damned stupid about basic economics.

    I’ll leave it up to Reason writers to parse out the nonsense that he’s currently dishing up to High-Hile club.

    You’d think an idiot that lives in a million-dollar mansion could afford to trot over to Powell’s in Hyde Park, and pick up a used paperback copy of “Economics in One Lesson” for a couple of bucks.

    Pies, chips, ponies … and HEALTH CARE for everyone!!!!

  7. 75,000 people can’t counterbalance boring.

  8. So I’m stuck with my crappy health insurance with a little lower premium but deadbeats are going to get the same coverage as members of Congress ?

    There isn’t any change here. Fucking DemocRATS always promise the Big Rock Candy Mountain, minus the cigarette trees of course.

  9. Shout out to the AK-47 ! Wooooooooooooooooo !!!

  10. “75,000 people can’t counterbalance boring.”

    Yeah? Well fuck you!

  11. …but deadbeats are going to get the same coverage as members of Congress ?

    Wait… that’s bad?

  12. What the fuck is this music?

  13. Yes, America was a wretched Southeast Asian cesspool until the Messiah came to Denver:

    Well he’s tellin’ us this
    And he’s tellin’ us that
    Changes it every day
    Say’s it doesn’t matter
    Bases are loaded and Casey’s at bat
    Playin’ it play by play
    Time to change the batter
    And we don’t need the ladies
    Crying ‘cuz the storie’s sad, uh huh
    Rocky Moutain Way
    Is better than the way we had

  14. Just wait until he debates Bob Barr!
