I just can't help myself. This year the elections are following O Brother, Where Art Thou? so closely its uncanny.
Just after the Republicans had a couple of Hispanic speakers at their convention- Governors and Senators- the Dems pull up the Mayor of San Antonio Texas as a speaker.
Reminds me of this scene:
The Money Line is of course:
Junior O'Daniel: We could hire our own midget, even shorter than his.
Pappy O'Daniel: Wouldn't we look like a bunch of Johnny-come-latelies, bragging on our own midget, doesn't matter how stumpy.
And since the Republicans had a speaker who has changed sides because of Obama, the Dems had to have one too. The Repubs had Arthur Davis, the Democratic Representative who seconded the nomination of Obama 4 years ago.
The Dems had a Former Republican Firefighter. Is that the best Party Traitor they could find?
Throwing up their midget, no matter how stumpy. I tell ya, this year the parodies are writing themselves.
