Lights! Camera! Bullshit!
The Democratic National Convention has begun! And it promises to be as hedonistic a Mardis Gras as they have ever thrown.
My friend CT Bob has noted that the DNC has spared little expense in making a Vegas-like producton, and that he wouldn't be surprised to see Cirque de Soliel swing through.
I'd have to agree! The glitz and glam is commensurate with the Democratic view of symbolism over substance.
Tonight's roster of tight-rope walkers and leotard-clad prancers includes former President Jimmy Carter, Michelle Obama, Senator Ted Kennedy and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
I doubt we will be lucky to see a white tiger come from behind the curtain and go Roy Horn on any of them, though.
