For a rollicking good time, I strongly recommend getting boozy while watching the Democratic National Convention. Or more specifically, buying a bottle of Jameson whiskey while eating a 6" circle of glistening perfection known as Junior's cheesecake. While the initial excuse for this was Terence's birthday, the focus quickly moved away from him and onto the hilarity of the many awkward speeches of the night. Nancy Pelosi, I love you. But when you tell a long story about being Italian and American and eating Italian food while being American and then abruptly ending it with, "and then a little boy popped out under the table and said, Barack Obama!" it doesn't exactly...inspire. I think I snarfed instead.
The highlights, in my humble opinion, were the ladies of the evening -- Claire McCaskill of Missouri who gave the one feisty speech of the night, and Michelle Obama, who spoke extremely well. She also looked mad good. Not surprising, though -- this woman has got some incredible style:
Tonight: Hillary speaks and the "cathartic" process begins. Thank goodness there's still some whiskey and cake left in the fridge.
P.S. And to the Dems: if someone in some speech soon doesn't give the McCain campaign the swift, hard, ass-kicking they deserve after this, this and this, I will find a way to fly to Denver and have this guy do it for you.
