The Democratic convention

I have not written anything about the Democratic convention that was held this past week where Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were formally nominated and elected to be the party’s candidates for president and vice president for the election on November 3. Instead I will leave it to Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert to do the honors..

Here is Samantha Bee.

And here is Stephen Colbert.

    Oh, there was a convention? Yawn.

    If I could play guitar, I’d pick up my guitar and play, just like yesterday.

    As a Pennsylvania resident I have to say it looks just like 2016 out here. I have seen ONE Biden sign and there are Trump signs everywhere. In 2016 I saw no Clinton sign at all. So maybe there is more excitement this year? Hopefully it’s all a lot of people like me going to hold their noses and vote for the lesser evil, hoping Biden wins and has a heart attack. Or does he have a clockwork heart? His head looks like it’s polyurethane.

    I did see a few news articles about all the people who were speaking and I noticed they marginalized AOC, Rasheeda, and Ilhan. The democrat machine taking revenge, no doubt. Trump’s gotta go but there is so much work still to do. We need an actual socialist party.

    Marcus Ranum @1: In my area (Seattle’s suburbs) I still see Warren and Bernie signs, I even saw a Beto bumper sticker a month ago. No Biden signs, but I do see signs in support of ‘Any functional adult 2020’. No Trump signs. Even the yards that have signs in support of Republican candidates for governor don’t have Trump signs. The few yards that had ‘Lock her up’ signs in 2016 are sign-free at the moment.

    Meanwhile, Richard Spencer, an unapologetic neo-Nazi, tweeted:

    ‘I plan to vote for Biden and a straight democratic ticket. It’s not based on “accelerationism” or anything like that; the liberals are clearly more competent people.’
