Empty seat convention…

leave a comment »

The DNC is  advertising for  actors to fill the empty seats at the convention.  Does this sound as if the unification process is going anywhere nearly as well as the Democrats and their compliant media friends are insisting?

Hillary’s coronation…

with 3 comments

Remember the media forecasting utter chaos in Cleveland?   I’ll have a post on that in a day or two,  but remember the blissful coronation of Queen Hillary which was to be?   Now,  maybe  not so much.

For starters,  the Dems are  $2.5 million short  on the necessary funds to pay for the coronation.   The Philadelphia police have sent a blistering letter to  Hillary’s campaign about the published speaker’s list,  giving prominence to mothers of  men killed by police,  without similar respect for the thin blue line.

The party which derides calls for a fence on our southern border erected a four-mile long  fence around  the convention site,  making crystal clear their utter hypocrisy on the subject.

The trouble began on Sunday  when supporters  of Bernie Sanders marched,  shouting “Lock her up!”   They are  planning  more,  as are a collection of  other activists.

Nancy Pelosi  was booed  at her California delegation breakfast this morning,  as  was Debbie  Wasserman Schultz at the Florida breakfast.

The convention was gaveled in a short while ago,  and the only times the delegates have been quiet was during the music and the Pledge of Allegiance.   My conclusion is that this convention will be even more interesting than the one last week.   The Queen is having trouble getting her crown on…

…other peoples’ money?   Maybe that’s why the NAACP  hasn’t paid the  bill for its annual convention held last July?

Whose airplanes?

It’s bad enough that the DNC has already been forced to apologize for using a photo of four Soviet-era Russian warships in a military montage during the convention.   But now we learn that the fighter jets shown  in  that set were Turkish,  not American.

Democrats are so supportive of our military that they couldn’t be bothered to tell the supplier to make sure the hardware was ours.

Blaming Isaac…

The DNC is  not using the stadium  for His Oneness on Thursday night due to  “concerns”  about the weather.  The truth is that while there are some legitimate concerns about rain,  the convention organizers were even more terrified by the  nightmarish image  of Obama speaking to a half-empty stadium.

Let’s face it  —  it doesn’t look good when the man who promised to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet can’t even fend off some rain.   Now they face the problem of deciding who actually gets into the Time Warner Arena venue,  which is less than a third the capacity of Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium.   There are going to be some very pissed-off people.

What if…

the Democrats held a national  convention and  nobody came?   Not to worry  —  they can always bus down hordes of union members and ACORN.
