Monday, July 25, 2016 – Notes From the Democratic National Convention
Right off the gavel “Within minutes, CNN was reporting that the DNC Rules Committee had relieved Wasserman Schultz of her role as convention chair and replaced her with Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge. “ Really? The Democratic National Convention RULES Committee is now chaired by a woman whose last name is Fudge? As in Fudge the Rules?
What is on the agenda tonight?
The first guess speaker at tonight’s Democratic National Convention is Charlie Brown’s teacher. Let’s listen to a portion of what she will say.
Wha wha wha; Blah, blah, blah;Wha wha wha wha; Blah.
Can’t wait to hear more of that tonight. There are other big political names scheduled to speak tonight. Michelle Obama also takes the podium this evening. I wonder if she will plagarize Melania Trump’s speech.
One never knows, but it sounds as though the indoors will be boring. It is the outdoors that is going to be interesting. What year is this? 1968 all over again? Where are we? Chicago? Is this one of the flashbacks our parents warned us about? (J. Buffet) Or am I witnessing history repeat itself? YIPPIE(S)!
According to Yahoo, planned protests include:
Some will call for voters to “deregister” from the major parties. Some are planning to block thoroughfares used to transport delegates to and from the arena. Some will be staging a “Mock Trial of Hillary Clinton.” Some are willing to be arrested.
Some will be marching a 51-foot inflatable marijuana joint from City Hall to the Wells Fargo Center.
That takes some really big Zig Zags! I cannot wait to see that in high definition!
Regardless of how one feels about the soon not to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, you must admit you will witness history.
