Wait–there’s more–lots more! So don’t stop me now.
Yesterday was kick-ass. The convention maintenance staff is still sweeping up glass shards. Big Dawg stole the show. (MSNBC and CNN completely missed the point and Twitter negated every thing they said!)
These are still the Twitter hashtags with the cute little icons.
There is also a Twitter account @DemConvention to follow.
Day 3 features Newtown’s own Erica Smegielski whose mom was the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School, Felicia Sanders & Polly Sheppard, survivors of the Mother Emanuel Church shooting in Charleston, SC., Jamie Dorff, wife of an Army helicopter pilot, VP Joe Biden, and President Obama, and other people not listed in the official website.
I’m still with CSPAN over MSNBC or CNN but I recommend waiting until Gavel In before tuning in. Seems they got suckered into covering the whiners while waiting.

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends…
Yesterday was phenomenal (despite some restless kids). In one day, Dems brought more substance and style than the Republicans did in their entire week. As it happens, there are too many people who want to speak and not enough time for all of them. (Recall the shit show last week where all they could get were Joanie-dumped-Chachi and the duck guy!)
Use these Twitter hashtags if you want the cute little icons. (Trigger warning–lots of trolls from the right and the left are using them.)
Day 2 features Big Dawg, a roll call vote (around 6 PM), and Mothers of the Movement. More here. And as we saw yesterday, there’s even more than that. For the record, I have 18 million reservations about that roll call vote.
Again, I highly recommend CSPAN over CNN or MSNBC. Seems the commercial channels need to interrupt too often to inject their worthless opinions and make a bigger deal about the butthurt Bros than they warrant. Also, Twitter will be livestreaming it.

Welcome to Day 1 of the convention. Here’s the schedule, though it doesn’t list everyone I heard would be speaking. Tonight’s big names are Bernie and Michelle Obama.
Bernie will be all, “when we began this campaign a little bit over a year ago…”
Michelle will be like:
Gavel In is at 4 PM.
It’s only fitting to open with the song that launched a thousand rallies.
So take this BernOuts:

So, Hillz picked a mushy middle boring guy. I’ll be honest–I thought Joe Biden was a lousy pick for Obama. Then he turned out to be the best guy for him. Just sayin’ (How bad could he be–Kos doesn’t like him!)
I’m thrilled to announce my running mate, Tim Kaine.
Tim is a lifelong fighter for progressive causes and one of the most qualified vice presidential candidates in our nation’s history. But his credentials alone aren’t why I asked him to run alongside me.
Tim’s a man of relentless optimism who believes no problem is unsolvable if you’re willing to put in the work. That commitment to delivering results has stayed with him throughout his decades-long career as a public servant.
I could give you a laundry list of things he accomplished as mayor of Richmond, governor of Virginia, and in the United States Senate. But here’s what’s important: Tim has never taken a job for the glory or the title. He’s the same person whether the cameras are on or off, motivated by the belief that you can make a difference in people’s lives through public service.
I didn’t make this decision lightly. I’ve had the privilege of seeing two presidents and two vice presidents up close, and I wanted to pick someone who will be able to give me their best advice, look me in the eye, and tell me they disagree with me when they do. But what matters most is a simple test that’s not easy to meet: whether the person could step in at a moment’s notice and serve as president.
I have no doubt that Tim can do the job, and I want him by my side on the trail and in the White House. But we’re going to need your help to get there. So join me and Tim, and let’s get to work and go win this thing.
So, go drop some green in the bucket and save the world from Hitler II.
