Repub Convention So Far

I think the three biggest messages I'm getting so far from the Republican convention are these:

  • We're very caring people.

  • You're free to vote for us even if you don't agree with our platform.

  • It's the way in which we tell you that it's "our way or the highway" that matters.
With only minor word changes, one of the Republicans said almost exactly what I did in the third bullet.

I wish interviewers in the media would be more challenging on the logic of the interviewee—it would impede the mendacity. "You mean that the Democrats don't want X?" "You say Y, but how does your policy actually demonstrate that?"

I wish the Republican party mascot was a large, angry bull.
