PBS & the Convention: Gavel to Gavel Coverage

What if…what if…all news stations were like PBS? We’d have Mr. David Brooks, with his bright pink tie and grey gingham shirt, talking about Robin Reuben (who?) and Mr. Mike Shields with his grandpa jowls. Ah, what a wonderful world it would be. We’d have professors and journalists providing historical context to our here and now.

Howard Dean: George Bush’s problem – he was president to only half the nation. Obama will be the president of all the people.

Delegates – 81% of them may have bachelor’s degrees, but they all have too much time on their hands. BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE TO WORK! BECAUSE THEY’RE ALL ELITISTS!

Who sent Inside Edition to the convention? Did you notice Nancy had a conservative shirt/pant combo rather than her slutty hot pink skirtsuit? Either she’s gotten fat, is pregnant, or had the wheresabout to know she had a different audience (though she does have a wardrobe lady…) I don’t have cable. I have to use bunny ears to get any of the teevee. Only 4 channels are clear: CBS (Inside Edition), NBC (Olympics), Christian Network (still looking for the man who plays the ram’s horn) and PBS.

Why does Nancy Judy Woodruff have to wear those ridiculous headphones…oh yeah, it’s PBS. No funds, no tiny earphones.

i kind of like Mike Shields’ tie…

“From the kitchen to the congress…” – Nancy Pelosi – needs to wear less heavy clip-on earrings. Or as Jeff says, “Nancy “jiggly earlobes” Pelosi”

Nancy Pelosi: Her outfit – a little too buttoned up for me, and as Jeff rightly says, “chef suit”

“Defining moment in our history…” yada yada yada

“one nation…UNDER GOD.”

“Gavel it!” – Jeff

Yay minimum wage raise! It’s still not enough!

New DNC slogan: “Barack Obama is right. John McCain is wrong.” — ‘Nuf said. Put that on the teevee screens.
