And... (sorta liveblogging)

Amanda Kubick is cool too.

Emil Jones Jr., however, is awful (he has now called the candidate "Brack" twice and apologized both times, which means that it's not an accent thing.)

And... did Reg Weaver really just say that Obama would get rid of the SATs? If so, I have no fucking idea how I feel about that. To be fair, I'm not sure that's what he meant, but it sure sounded like it. He said that Obama would get rid of "the standardized tests our children use to get into college." If that's what it means I have no idea if I'm for or against that. I've never even considered it before.

Lisa Madigan is fucking hot!!! I want to go to law school so she can be my boss.

I can't believe they are now playing the Jackson Five "ABC." Is Michael going to address the delegates next?

Sen. Amy Kloubuchar just said that the difference between her and McCain was that when he came to the Senate he had a private jet, while when she came she brought "a shower curtain from 1985."


Ok, now they are making us look at 55 year old fat white delegates trying to dance to "Run Sally Run." If that's not wrong, I don't know what's right.

Wait - who is this middle of the road elevator music dude singing some song called "If you are out there." Wow, puke, puke, puke, puke, puke.

Fuck me! Did I take too much Xanax or are they now playing a fucking Earth, Wind and Fire song?

That's just wrong. I feel like I'm hallucinating.

And now Alicia Keys is singing "No One." Honestly? Is there no one in the Democratic party capable of picking up a guitar?

Wait. The sound just went off and I got a message from CNN saying that "audio may not be available due to licensing legislation outside the United States."

Does someone really own a copyright on this? I mean, shit, couldn't I read the fucking transcripts in the morning?

The sound is back on!!!!

Dr. Laura Tyson just said that Obama would send a thousand dollar check to every American taxpayer. This, by far, got the biggest cheer of anything I've seen tonight.

Fuck. The sound just died again. It's 2 a.m. and I'm going to sleep. If the CNN feed was working I'd stay up, but it ain't.


I hope Ted does well tonight.
