I watched the DNC raw feed last night. I wasn’t interested in any talking heads explaining to me what I was seeing or what I heard.
I am not going to review the speeches. Content aside, speaking ability aside – I must say I don’t understand what Tim Kaine brings to this campaign other than a video of constantly changing bad haircuts – the Democrats seemed to understand that they should stop talking about Russian emails and get back to their game plan.
My favorite moments were when delegates chanted No More War to Leon Panetta – which apparently displeased Rachel Maddow, I am told – and the video intro to President Obama.
Go to 2:30 of the video.
It shows Rahm Emanuel and quotes him as advising President Obama not to pursue the Affordable Care Act.
You want evidence that Rahm Emanuel is toast?
The Obama people chose to screw Emanuel by name in the video.
I know there is no love lost between the Obama people and Rahm.
There are plenty of reports that Michelle can’t stand him.
But in the prime time intro to the President’s endorsement speech of Hillary Clinton, Rahm – who had no other presence at the Convention – was called out by name for being a cowardly dick with no political principles. It’s not like there aren’t others they could have named. They chose to name him.
Don’t let the door hit you, Mr. Mayor.
