The Democratic National Convention is underway in Denver. I've sat through some of the speeches and so far besides Ted Kennedy (you can always count on the Kennedy's to deliver, can't you) I've been bored out of my mind.
For God's sake, will someone please inspire me? Every speech comes off like a bad time share sales pitch mashed up with cliched rah-rah team building jargon. It's funny hearing them all say McCain is out of touch while playing to a room full of Four Seasons staying, $200 a plate eating, plastic politicians. The speeches are all very pretty but I want to hear them discuss concrete plans for what they will do instead of spoonfeeding the American people sugarcoated answers they think we want to hear (did this sentence make you hungry too?).
But that's not my main concern. I'm worried because this is a two horse race and one of those horses has been kidnapped and banished to the Phantom Zone.
Actually he was in Billings, Montana which some would argue is a fate worse than the Phantom Zone. Taking his current situation into consideration Barack clearly missed the mark on his VP candidate.
I don't have a problem with Joe Biden, but the Obama/Kal-El ticket would be unstoppable. A bold economic plan and X-Ray vision? That plays on the coasts and in the heartland. And Clark Kent would help Obama carry Smallville easily. If you're still having doubts, check out Supe's tough stance on foreign policy.
Even without Superman present to hurl punk villains into space, as of now I plan on voting for the Dems (with moving to Canada still my preferred course of action). Let's hear it for the lesser of two evils. Kneel before Obama!
