Liveblogging the RNC

Except without time stamps. Because, dear Lord, so much work.

Disclaimer-

1.) I am not anti-feminist. I am a woman. I think I am as smart and capable if not smarter and more capable than any given man. So is my sister. And my mom. But I don't know if I can trust a woman who accepts a position that will guarantee that she is not around to raise her newborn with special needs and expose her daughter to public scrutiny. I have nothing, NOTHING, against working mothers. Knock yourself out. But I know that if I was in her position, there is nothing I wouldn't do to protect my kids.

2.) I want to like Sarah Palin. I really do. The little girl inside me who used to dress up as Chelsea Clinton is going YES! SOMEONE YOUNG AND PRETTY MAYBE I SHOULD BE A POLITICAL SCIENCE MAJOR!!! Also, her teeth are adorable.

3.) I'm still voting for McCain.

4.) I still think this was a ridiculous decision and it seriously makes me question McCain's judgement.

5.) STOP TELLING ME TO SUPPORT HER. I'm voting for her, dammit. Why must I be happy about it, too, just because I have a vagina and think that Roe v. Wade should be overturned?

So, Rudy just made some jokes. And everybody is all fired up. Woohoo.

Little known fact- I saw Josh Groban in that building last summer. I'm fairly certain I had a better time. Nobody wants to see any flappage here.

Wow, her baby is adorable. If drugged. Kid hasn't woken up once and people are going batshit crazy there.

Cindy McCain let her hair down. Good. I've been saying that for months.

Oh, the traditional "we met in high school and fell in love and 100 years later we're still together!!!" story. Gah. Once, just once, I want someone to be like, "Um, yeah, I got drunk. And he was dating my best friend, and now we're not best friends anymore, and most of the time he really bugs me."

Now the little daughter is holding the baby. *is enchanted* *is disgusted by threshold for enchantment*

Her hair looks better too. I'd still change the bangs, though.

Average mom quote. *snore*

I tire of this. I'm going to go HAVE MY OWN OPINIONS. She'd better hurry up. The Daily Show is on in eighteen minutes. And then six times tomorrow. Whatever.

ETA: Oh, my Lord, that little girl just licked her hand and smoothed the baby's hair. I'm disgusted and want to adopt at the same time.

Is that family adorable or what -- that little girl holding the baby was the cutest thing I have ever seen!!! Although, as I said, it was not natural for the baby to sleep through all of that screaming and clapping....she sure gave a great speech though - and under alot of pressure....maybe McCain did help his cause....

yeah....Rockford has the idea!!!! Yes that little girl was so cute:)
