RNC Initial observations

So, the Republican National Convention has begun...great. I just watched Arnold's speech...not so great. He was telling me that if I think certain things I'm a Republican. My favorite was, "If you think this nation, not the United Nations is the only hope for democracy (or freedom), then you're a Republican." Awesome...who needs the UN? We ought to get rid of it...just like the League of Nations. Somehow I'm reminded of Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars wanting to do away with The Republic. Sad...just sad.

On Sunday I caught President Clinton giving remarks at Riverside Church in New York City. He gave a compelling argument against the religious right. He basically said that one doesn't have to think like them to claim God's promise on one's life...Awesome!
