Republicans Know How To Showcase Diversity
  • The Republican National Committee has finally released its speaker line-up for the convention, which McCain spokesman Rick Davis says is designed "to showcase the 'diversity' of the Republican Party." [HuffPo]
  • Which is why the line-up is 75% male and 86% white. "Diversity." [Washington Post]
  • John McCain's doesn't question Obama's patriotism, just his judgment, so Obama should just shut up and accept that we need to keep on keeping on with the war in Iraq. [Politico]
  • Which is why McCain would be cool with having a draft again, since once we're done in Iraq we'll still have Osama bin Laden to chase down and we won't have enough troops for that. [ThinkProgress]
  • Rush Limbaugh is just dying for Obama to pick Biden because Biden says stupid crap. And Rush Limbaugh knows all about saying stupid crap. [Time]
  • Like this gem: "it is striking how unqualified Obama is and, and how this whole thing came about with, within the Democrat Party. I think it really goes back to the fact that nobody had the guts to stand up and say no to a black guy." [Media Matters]
  • Moe's intellectual nemesis, if you want to call Linda Hirshman an intellectual, agrees with Rush Limbaugh that Obama's critics were silenced too early and she agrees with John McCain that Obama is the new Paris Hilton. Guess we know who's decided our reproductive rights are less important than her ability to say "I told you so." [Washington Post, Washington Post, Huffington Post]
