This is why I watch only the speeches, and mostly via youtube or cspan.

The whole backdrop-podium thing is interesting: it will be something we can whack them over the head with during the Republican convention, which will almost certainly feature some real neo-fascist elements....

Normally, I watch only the speeches and recaps as well.

I got to thinking, though, that I've spent a fair amount of time sneering a major media outlets and their coverage of events--and a lot of my opinions were formed from reading other people's interpretations of things.

This time, I decided to give the live process a chance--to watch it for myself.

And all I'm hearing about is the STUPID PODIUM. And a ton of discussion of McCain.

My prediction for the Republican convention? A lot of sound and fury, signifying noting, of course. A lot of rah-rah moments, because the rightwing base responds well to that. They'll evoke god a lot and threaten us all with terrorists if we don't vote Republican.
