This year's event has cemented the GOPs image as a most unflattering characiture of itself. I suppose if you're a staunch right wing believer, it was all very inspirational and gratifying.

I tried mightily to shake off any Liberal leanings and view it in as objective a light as I could. I even went to a couple of conservative news sites to watch some of the video clips assuming that they might portray/edit them in more attractive form. And I watched some of it on C-Span. But still, I couldn't help but shake my head and feel profound embarrassment for these people. They. Are. All. Batshˇt. Crazy! eek
