She Shat the Tiffany Cufflinks 

I thought it was a very good speech if its main purpose was to rally her supporters around Obama. She really delivered on that front. But I think its now pretty clear that the top Dems are constitutionally incapable of a waging substantive and effective attacks on Rethugs. They just can’t bring themselves to do it. All we get from them are big, fluffy rhetorical jabs off the teleprompter that are maddeningly corny and stupid. It’s enough to make we want to punch a fucking hole in the wall. The "twin cities" crack was a perfect example of this. Talk about G-rated weak shit. What a lost opportunity to spell out why Rethugs are poison for America. I don't care if you guys think I'm a negative bitch. This is a fucking joke by any reasonable measure. America can handle the truth. It's begging for it.

Of course, there’s a reason for the weakness of the Dem "attacks." They really don’t think the Rethugs are that bad. Seriously. We’ll go bald and gray waiting for the Dems to throw anything but weak softballs at their good Republican friends and colleagues. There are certain subjects that are simply off-limits, because it would be ungentlemanly to raise them, and those subjects are the stuff of impeachments, prosecutions, and prison time. I’m sick of forcing myself to applaud the pedestrian "zingers" the Democrats are throwing. Jeezus, the bar couldn’t be lower. Prove me wrong, Biden.
