I'll probably read all about it. But, I certainly have no intention of watching next week's clown show.

Opinions?

I am one of the people (rare it seems) who really don't enjoy watching train wrecks. I'll probably read about it, rather than watch.

I definitely plan to watch. Should be fun in a guilty pleasure sort of way. I may not watch the Democratic one, however, as that one will probably just depress me.

I might look into CNN or BBC for an hour, but it is much too long. And you won't see the real fun, anyway.

As a person who respects and admires many of the Republican "establishment" politicians, such as the Bush family, I will be nowhere near a viewing position for the RNC convention. It will not represent true Republicans and conservatives and thus will be of no interest to me.

I'm interested in hearing the official platform.

I hope the Sanders voters are open minded enough to tune in. Their goals are more aligned with the republicans than the democrats. Through the years, the parties have mostly switched positions.

It's also good therapy for the haters. They can piss and moan and carry on and get it out of their system, but at the end of the day even the thickest skull absorbs something.

I watch them both because I care.

Only if there's a chance the Republicans will revolt and not nominate the conman as their candidate. That would be interesting to watch. Otherwise, who gives a rip?

Nope, it would take away too many minutes of my life that I could never get back. Do not plan on watching the DNC circus either.

I've gotten over and am fine with the fact that Bernie isn't going to win.
Revolutions can have a multitude of leaders, just ask the founding fathers...

I will record each convention and watch the parts I wish after the conventions are over.

I planned to watch but then they decided that they weren't going to allow the convention delegates to bring their guns! Talk about taking away all the fun!

I agree. But I still think the Convention will be depressing.

I don't see why, but oh well. If anything it will be infuriating, and Clinton's screeching will be annoying (yeah, you know what I agree, **** that noise).

I'll watch a good bit of it. I don't trust the written media. They can slant a story with a headline. Hardly even trust my lyin' eyes. But slightly more...

I might watch a few speeches on YouTube.
