I thought the exact same thing. Even "tweeted" it. She all but sang Kumbahya...

My 86 year old mother just said the same thing -- Bob Dylan songs won't win the middle class over. I suspect the Republicans will have someone who sounds a lot like Kate Smith sing God Bless America.

Pretty sure no one in middle America watches until prime time.

Ian Jordan

Once again great analysis (not). To the most obvious point- only a fraction of the average 20 million or so who watch the convention do so at this time.

Secondly, Melissa Ethridge hardly offends anyone in middle america. In fact, i doubt even 30% of those watching know who she is.

I hope those who pay you for your analysis have receipts.

Nobody's watching now.

Apparently a lot 86 year old Mamas are tuning in...

Potheads!

Ian,
It's not that Melissa Etheridge offends people; thought she can be a bit flaky. it's that "Give Peace a Chance" is an old granola song. There are other songs that may have worked better.

Jambon

was Jim Webb in the hall when this happened? i can only imagine his reaction!

too bad they didn't invite Madonna so she could compare McCain to Hitler.

Ian Jordan

Granola or not, not a single vote was lost b/c of her or her song.

RedVirginia

Hahahaha agreed! Not quite appealing at all to anyone!

t

You lost my vote b/c of her song and Ian's posts.

Grapes

Why do they keep showing Michelle Obama's annoying facial contortions?

What a trainwreck.

I didn't tune in until Clinton's speech. Great speech.I'm ready to go!

But I grew up with Les Paul and Mary Ford and Chuck Berry--who the Hell is Melissa Ethridge? Why will she cost us votes?

Blue Ridge Democrat

Not Hussein (formerly Not Ben)

Why does gRapes hate black women?

Not John S. Mosby

Biden started slow but he seems pissed and fired up right now. He's taking McCain to the woodshed on the Middle East right now.

Tatum

When does Paris Hilton speak?

Not John S. Mosby

Oh, and Michelle Obama is butt heinous. Big forehead and cheeks, mouth too small for the teeth, beady eyes - looks like a fucking space alien of some kind.

Wow! Good speech by Joe Biden....Great theater with Barack Obama's surprise appearance!


I'm ready to go--Take America Back with Obama/Biden/Warner!

Blue Ridge Democrat

Well not John Mosby, we know you're a 5'3", 26 year old dweeb who wears horn rims, has bad acne , lives in his mom's basement and blogs in his PJ's.

That's okay--we all feel sorry for you.

Blue Ridge Democrat

t

Mark Warner took ten steps backwards with his hideous passionless speech yesterday.

As of now, Obaba has a negative bounch coming out of this stupifyingly subpar convention.

Speaking of 26-year-old dweebs, there's one running for 6th district. Anyone who that is?

t

Speech Grades:

Hill A
Bill C
Joe Biden D
Mark Warner F

Hokie Guru

Mark Warner is going to beat Gilmore by 15-20 points, T.

Grapes

I am sick of the androgynous loud-mouth liberal Rachel Maddow (MSNBC).

Dan Geroe

How come this blog has become primarily Republican Commentators trying to stir up sh*t amongst Democrats? Instead of pretending to be upset for Hil (when you were the assholes making her life hell not but six years ago), why don't you focus on your own convention?

Grapes

Many of us are independents who vote the person rather than the party Dan.

t

If you cannot compete with the conservatives on NLS, Dan Geroe, then you should scurry away.

Martha

Rachel Maddow would kick your ass, Grapes. You obviously hate women.

Not Paris Hilton

Mark Warner has been a bore for the last 10 years, why did anyone expect anything different at the convention? If McCain wins, that speech didn't propell Warner for anything in 2012. Just like in Virginia, he's only on stage because he's got big bucks. If he didn't have money, no one would pay any attention to him. And the peace niks? The middle class knows that all Democrats are like that, right?

red dem

Total agreement. we are not the peacenik party of the 60s anymore. get serious. act serious. be serious. win the election. lead the country.

The irony of having that on your
Security/Strength/I'm a man night is hilarious

A Voter

I loved Jon Stewart's analysis of Mark Warner's "inspirational" keynote speech!

Sorry for the multi-post.

Tatum

Good governance is boring. No one starting wars or giving away money.

It's hard to get passionate about balancing budgets. But that stuff makes a huge difference.

I'm inspired by someone that simply does his job and does it well. So, I'll say it again. Mark Warner's my hero!

The Poor 6th District

Hey 23:23...could that dweeb running for 6th district be Sam Rasoul?

I want Kaine's eyebrow back - NLS!

Why is Tony Rezko being seen so many times at the courthouse? Is he talking to the feds finally? (Cite in article directs you to Chicago Sun-Times speculation.)

Sam

hey Ben, are you guys hearing anything about this rumor on drudge that McCain campaign's gonna' "leak" his VP pick's name at 6 tonight?

Pete in Williamsburg

Ben,

Very weak topic and analysis for the #1 blog in Virginia. It reminds me of the standard construct of right-wing AM radio talkers who will read a midnight post from an unknown blog and say "Folks, doesn't that tell you all you need to know about the American Left?"

Bubby Hussein, Hillbilly Sheikh

Bubba rocked last night! We have our George C. Marshall (Mark Warner). Joe Biden looked suitably fed-up and ready to rumble. Now we need Barack to roll out and declare war on the sons o bitches that sold our country to Wall Street, China, and the Saudis.
