Here it is in its entirety from the Guardian which so far was a cheerleader:
Obama wins make-believe Democratic party vote designed to be won by Obama
Of course, you do know Guardian, this is racist, right? I mean, “make believe” is almost as bad a slur as “fairy-tale”. And don’t even try to pretend it was about the vote. Clinton also tried to say his was about war opposition
and nobody believed him either! Still, the longest sentence in history that follows is also the funniest so here goes:
..Aaaand we’re back, just in time to note that, pursuant to Section C8 of the Democratic Party Rules and Procedures, Barack Obama just won the convention’s very carefully choreographed roll-call vote, during which the representatives of many state delegations boasted that their state was better than all the others, until finally Hillary Clinton stepped forward to end the voting and award the nomination to Obama by acclamation, and Nancy Pelosi, who was overseeing the ceremonies, asked those who agreed to say “yay,” and those who disagreed to say “nay,” but cleverly left no time at all for anyone to actually say “nay” before declaring that the motion had been passed, making Obama the official Democratic party nominee, and then everyone burst into tears and they played Love Train on the PA system and everyone was very happy, the end.
That was funny. Does it mean the Guardian put down the kool-aid?
Anyway, adding my guy’s contribution to the poetry contest
There once was a convention in Denver
It was really a thing to remember
The vote was a sham
They all went to 0bam
Let’s see how he does in November
On this side of the pond only someone like Buchanan dared write about the obvious:
DENVER — After the phony roll call vote was taken here to formally nominate Barack Obama — a roll call that did not remotely reflect the true delegate strength of Hillary — the media exploded in an orgy of celebration about the historic character of the moment to which they had just been privileged to be witness.
and he even noted the treatment of the Clintons after the accusations of racism:
Here at the convention, the media watched Hillary and Bill’s speeches with a commissar’s care — to ensure they not only embraced Barack but “validated” his credentials to be president. Should they not go all out for Obama, we are told, the Clintons are dead in the party.
and then on the good ve evil framing of this election:
With this immense moral and emotional investment in a Barack victory — by 94 to 1 in one poll black America is behind him — what happens if the nation decides he is too radical, too inexperienced, too callow, too risky to be president?
What happens if the American people reject their marching orders and say no to Barack and black America? What happens if all the hopes and dreams, hype and hoopla, end in disillusionment?
No candidate has ever been nominated by a major party with fewer credentials or a weaker claim to the presidency, or more doubts as to his core beliefs. If Obama wins, the country could be in real trouble. And if he loses, the country could be in real trouble.
What the media celebrate today, they may rue tomorrow.
