Thursday’s convention had several powerful moments. I found Mrs. Dorn’s story especially powerful.
After two weeks of party sales pitches, this line from the President’s speech probably is the money quote of the fortnight—
They say that redemption for you can only come from giving power to them.
I found this comment in a review of the second night of the Republican Convention in a post by cccc Liel Leibovitz at Tablet.
This is not to say that watching both conventions will get a sizable number of voters to stop worrying and learn to love Donald Trump. But it is to say that it’s becoming increasingly more clear that the Democrats’ real problem isn’t the party’s aging candidate or its rambunctious left flank but, rather, its relationship with reality itself.
Not only does the Republican National Committee have an 18:1 cash-on-hand advantage, but the Democratic National Committee actually has a negative net worth.
Is it November yet?
