    Aren't tv ratings pretty low? Just how much of an impact do the conventions have anymore?
    Now one could say that if you could figure out who is likely to vote and then poll that bunch to see if they watch the conventions then maybe you can figure it out. Has anyone done that?

    I couldn't care less about either of them. I'd rather watch Friends.

    some old blonde chic was there ragging on bush and saying how 30 years ago we had an energy crisis and today we still have one. our current admin is at fault.

    she obviously didn't do well with simple math.

    Well, in all fairness to her, Bush was at fault for the dwindling dinosaur population back in the prehistoric days.

    i knew he looked familiar. he did it though to one day dig up their oil so it's all a conspiracy as you can put together on your own now.

    i was so inspired by hillary rotten klinton her thighness i stuck my ipod earphones in my ear and started listening to scandanavian black metal to drown out that famous hillary shreeking voice.

    I've tried to be open to the DNC this time but my own presuppositions mixed with their alarming lack of substance and hubris has me coming away most unedified from both nights of the convention thus far.

    I have been watching it on and off. I watch some of the convention then watch some fungus grow and frankly the fungus is more entertaining.

    I've been trying to catch one speech a night. Michelle Obama the first night and Hillary Clinton last night. Overall though, it's pretty boring television.

    I watched Bill Clinton and that is about it...the rest of them just say the same ignorant garbage over and over again...Bill Clinton truly has become a loose cannon, you never know what he is going to do or say...I find him very entertaining, but its hard to believe he was once the leader of the free world...

    Hmmm...I guess you are right...but on the coverage last night there was a very long segment of him speaking, I guess it was at a previous rally or something?

    I don't because I don't care what they have to say. It's all scare tactics meant to stir up people whose minds were already made up in the first place. None of these people can accomplish all the things they promise. I'm usually shocked if they accomplish one thing. We have the same issues facing us that we've had for as many years as I have been voting.
