Well, after the big speeches yesterday and all the fanfare, looking at the polls this morning - looks like Trump is getting a bump from the DNC.

Is it true that Bill Clinton made no mention of the charitable work of the Clinton Foundation?

Obama and Biden are on tonight, and I believe Kaine is as well. I know Jesse Jackson is speaking - that should be good for a laugh. He's talking about racial injustice. Michael Bloomberg is too. Maybe he'll talk about sugary sweets.

Aside from my differences on her positions toward firearms, Gabrielle Giffords has made impressive gains in her rehabilitation over the past few years.

Quote of the night nominee
8:43 p.m. The actual quote from the admiral: “I served in the same Navy as John McCain. I used to vote in the same party as John McCain. Donald, you’re not fit to polish John McCain’s boots.” Fan****ingtastic.

Is it my imagination or is the anti-war Left picking a fight with Panetta?

Nice take"

8:08 p.m. Good to know that I’m not the only person marinated in Catholic values who finds Trump a horrifying candidate:

Catholics who attend Mass weekly have increased their support for the Democratic nominee by 22 percentage points relative to 2012.

This isn’t a vote for Clinton so much as a clear understanding that Trump is the nemesis of any Christianity worthy of the name.

Yep. I absolutely fail to see haw any true Christian could possibly support Trump the hate-mongering buffoon.
