Yeah, so, the DNC. I'm not Bill Clinton's biggest fan (for the people flapping about how centrist/right Obama is, um, Bill was pretty much 10X worse). However, who could resist that master class on how to deliver policy in a down-homey, aw-shucks, now listen to this part folks, way? He demolished the wackos while pandering to the base. I, for one, was impressed that we're going there this year. That combined with Obama's speech make me hopeful that a second term will be a go-for-broke HURRYHURRYHURRY attempt to actually legislate the Liberal Agenda. It'll be a no-go since we're not focusing on the House, but at this point my focus is the Supreme Court more than anything else. Put Hils on the Court. Oh, the schadenfreude that will be had by Right Thinkers.

While I have expressed my opinions quite liberally
about so-called Christians, I find committed Christians who work for the marginalized extremely inspiring. The idea of their religion when actualized like this is (naturally) very appealing to leftwing nutjobs like me.
I really enjoy seeing a nun bring it to Ryan, calling him out as a disgusting human being. In a nice way.
And then there was this
