Wake up, Dennis. The Democrats will bring NONE of those things! The last two years have proven that the only thing they (like the Republicans) care about is getting elected, not governing once they do.

eh. speaking as a performer, he just doesn't have the voice, or even the physical presence to pull off what he was attempting here.(he's no jeremiah wright, for instance.:)) it's not the first time he's reminded me of a chihuahua.

still, a noble effort, and i don't recall hearing anything i disagreed with.

i wonder- did his "wake up america" riff remind anyone else of a certain bill hicks routine?

Maybe you didn't fall for his theatrics, but I did. Where was this hard ass when he was running for candidacy?

LOL! Bill Hicks is one of my favorites.

"Here watch American Gladiators. Go back to sleep America, your government is in control."

Yeah, if Kucinish had the voice, looks and name, he'd be a force. Did you know that something like 60% of CEOs are over 6'2"? People like being led by tall people, who know why.

Kucinich's speech should be the talking point of the Dems tho. Too often the Democratic party gets lost and soft and off track. They need to HAMMER the Repubs on this stuff.

Include the lies into war, the lies about this, about that, and a tag line "you can't trust them." list the loss of jobs. "you can't trust them" list the price of gas "YOU CAN'T TRUST THEM.

Tax and spend? The war cost 3 trillion dollars. That is $X per family. Where do you think they will TAKE that money from?

YOU.

Americans are fearful silly people. Show them who to really fear.

Now THAT should have been the Keynote address, instead of Warner's snoozer.

Sorry for the double posts. I had network errors and didn't get any confirmation.

jonathan becker - Kucinich's voice might not've moved you, but he did whip up the crowd - if only because he was on target. Nopes, the Dems probably can't/won't do anything. Then again, Kucinich's speech was part of the convention, so there's a ray of "hope" after all.

Wake up America, you're dreaming (who remembers WKRP???). Sad and true. Wake up Democrats, get off your asses and do something about it while you ahve the chance!

I love the guy -- he dares things that no politician in his right mind would try (did you see him even glance at a teleprompter or notes?).

Hey Becker, you seen that little dog's wife? With energy like that, you might land the gorgeous redhead too. They could clone him 534 times and fill the entire House with DK's and it would be all right with me.

gypsy sister: "Wake up America, you're dreaming (who remembers WKRP???)."

WKRP?!?! Christ. You're a baby. Don't you remember "Horrendo Revolver" (Giraldo Rivera) doing his "in-depthth Exthpoethee on the recording induthtree?" Their theme song was "Wake up America, You're Dreaming". The people doing this satire was a little-known troupe that called themselves Cheech and Chong.

"Hmmmm... thudio thee... thudio thee... letsth thee... OHH! There it isth! Right there nextht to thudio A!"

Regarding Kucinich (my 1st choice as president of my dream USA), too bad about the height, big ears, and shallow electorate that makes manner count more than matter. To the finely-attuned, there was also a message to make the Dems squirm: that of the takeover of health care by the insurance industry -- which is precisely what both B.O. and Hillary have reduced their vision to.

i'd just like to point out that my reference to physical presence and the chihuahua remark were not about dennis's height. mick jagger, prince, james brown and bruce springsteen all spring to mind as examples of extremely short men with extremely commanding physical presences. it's more about body language, i guess. and the voice of course. (i just heard david beckham speak for the first time, at the olympic handover ceremony, and i was shocked by the reedy, immature quality of his voice. it doesn't fit somehow with such a "greek god" physique.)

and brian, i wish you would post more often, it would take the pressure off of me to be "pc". that comment

With energy like that, you might land the gorgeous redhead too.

well, if my girlfriend heard me use the word "land" in that context, she'd kick the shit out of me. but she's good looking enough, thanks. :)

i've mentioned elsewhere here recently that, if it came down to a "hottie" contest, i'd vote for michelle obama over kuciniche's wife. although it's admittedly close.

"Here watch American Gladiators. Go back to sleep America, your government is in control."

yep, that's the one.:)

If it all came down to a hottie contest, I'd kill myself. Now.

Shit. Now I gotta go kill myself.

re speeches, i loved brian sweitzers, really loved it. Is he a good guy or just seems great in the speech.]

Did not really love Kuninich.....

But watching right now, Bill Clinton best speech, best speech so far, Best speaker, did not appear to be using teleprompters.

Also alluded to what i think, Obama is not Kennedy, he is the next Bill Clinton, young, son of a single mother, school on scholarships, great speaker, smart as a whip, great political instincts, is running a really smart campaign. Swings to the middle economically. Not sure Obama has the ruthlessness.

that was some gil scott-heron shit right there.

"Here watch American Gladiators. Go back to sleep America, your government is in control."

You posted it on the internet, now Rudi has to rewrite his speech.

kucinich rocks. always has. if the dem's wanted to be republican lite (a strategy they have tried and failed at before) they wouldn't have let him speak. good convention so far. heck all the obama campaign has to do is tell the truth. the republicans have only lies, disaster, incompetence, failure and war crimes to boast about. obama 2008. let's do this.

Been watching internet video snippits of the convention (don't have cable) and is it me or do the democrats just have no gut instinct for what makes a good show?

I seriously get the same vibe from some of the delegates, etc. that I get when Jerry Springer has a guest who's husband is really sleeping with his sister who is actually a man.

They seem to wag thier body a lil too much and speak slightly too excitedly. I dunno but it is a bit embarassingly amateur to me and seems to say "I make bad decisions, support my candidate".

Perhaps it is the classic difference between the parties. One is youthful and multicultural, the other is primarily white and old stiff men.

A decade ago in my home town, I worked on two campaigns, one republican (a good man) and one democrat (a good judge). I walked from the HQ to the poles with the R that would later be the Lt Governor and then stopped in at the Democratic HQ. I could not have believed the difference in every single way. People, drinks, food, excitement vs... stagnation in suits.

Anyone else ever been to both sides?

@Thomas MC: Wake up, Dennis. The Democrats will bring NONE of those things! The last two years have proven that the only thing they (like the Republicans) care about is getting elected, not governing once they do.

Well, with a negative attitude like yours they certainly won't. Get inspired much?

Mmm...

"jonathan becker - Kucinich's voice might not've moved you,"

Mr. Becker, you've the ear of a mutant musicant, musicrat, whatever, one of the inspired ones* (as opposed to the insipid many many manies).

"The Democrats will bring NONE," MNANNY (State), MNANY, Mnemonists of disappointments past: it's all a show. We are actually given a choice between choosing one of twin heads of a mutant two-headed snake, on branched necks of the same business/busy-ness party. "neath Big(T)wigs all.

Busy-ness truncates thought, prevents questioning, imagining, it is akin to marching (to Mars's martial bands of manic manies bound by malicious militarism).

Negative nabobs, negritude trumps all! Obama will grow in office (I hope). Groovy coincidences inspire magical thinking, hope, panglossalalia:

O Obama, sir, please live up to..."a race for the future", a jackpot lucky congo combo (kenya, whatever), Obama the Overman, Ubama bin Ubermensch...that's the ticket!

""I make bad decisions, support my candidate". "

Wow! Sarah Palin is a great decision? Well, err,... After forty, when one's neo-cortex has reached its maximum, the zenith of its control over the horses (whimsy) who would err off on their own (possibly ill-advised) errands, given the opportunity, the "driver" (-past 40) yawns, dozes off, visits the Land of Nod, Schlaraffenland, the province where McCain has built, maybe, many a mansion (and a chateau or two). Robinson, Anti-hood-son, where exactly IS your home town, homeboy?

I was surprised Edwards cheated on his wife, if any of them would have, I would have thought it would have been Kucinich, self-Serbing son of a Vitch. Ha!

N O T!

Nader rocks! But Obama is the more groovy. Damn Ordovicians, vicious hold-outs (Elvis, Johnny Cash, e.g.). Or was/is he a Silurian? Tom Jones?

Obama/Zerbe("Budgie"). THAT is the ticket.

I ain't speaking click language here.

*As I slooshied, my glazzies tight shut to shut in the bliss that was better than any synthemesc Bog or God, I knew such lovely pictures. There were vecks and ptitsas, both young and starry, lying on the ground screaming for mercy, and their litsos. And there were devotchkas ripped and creeching against walls and I plunging like a shlaga into them, and indeed when the music, which was one [good] movement...
