Republican Convention Wrap-Up Day 4

mccaingreenscreen.pngZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. No. Seriously. ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz.

It’s hard to tell which was duller: John McCain’s acceptance speech or the Giants/Redskins game. I think John Madden may have been more coherent than usual (probably because he was drunk), and there was one point in last night’s NFL telecast when Madden actually said something insightful, which may have been a first. It was more than McCain could muster.

I can’t really speak to the substance of McCain’s speech because, after the protesters were chased from the Hall and the screen in the background finally settled on one color, the only thing that kept me involved was counting the number of yawners the camera captured. I counted four.

I thought John Kerry’s 2004 speech was going to go down as the dullest in the modern era. We have a new winner.
