I'm trying to be fair and balanced here. But McCain has put me to sleep. I'm bored.

Better bored than full of rage, which is what most of the RNC speeches (that I've actually listened to) have rendered me.

My T.V. went into sleep mode 10 minutes after he started talking...

I think his biggest hurdle will be his complete lack of rhetorical warm fuzzy. The guy is boring as all hell. Which, in a way, should make for good president material (I realize there are more qualifiers needed), It makes for terrible candidate material.

Fortunately for the GOP, the Evil Vixen Librarian is a fairly charismatic personality. Like a hotter and more evil Tina Fey.

Susan, That's a good way to think about it.

DC, I wish my TV had such powers.

Casey, I don't think boring makes for good presidents, and I am the ONLY "Evil Vixen Librarian" in this town, and I'm going to keep it that way.

And she can't be because she's too loud to be a librarian.

I flipped on to the McCain speech about halfway through, and after probably a minute and a half, I had to turn it because he delivers everything like he's half asleep, as opposed to Bush who delivers everything as if the idea just popped into his head and he's not sure if he knows the proper words for it.

In my lifetime, the only Vice Presidential candidate who's been able to compensate and outshine a Presidential candidate has been Dick Cheney, the personification of evil itself. Palin's as self-righteous as Cheney, but she lacks the experience (dating back to Nixon) and I think the absolute saturation of evil that Cheney carried. For instance, Cheney simply would have taking his ex-brother-in-law "hunting" rather than trying to exert pressure on state officials to do something about him.
