The Daily Show did a great segment about the "a sea of white faces" who have been "left out and left behind" back in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, while the more important Republicans went down to New Orleans to "deal" with a natural disaster. One member of the GOP — anyone know who he is? — gave one of the assiest, yet most honest comments on the situation: "I was real excited until we decided to cancel the convention to placate the liberal media…because some people are getting rained on." Harsh as that is, it's probably a pretty accurate sentiment to what many of the GOP delegates were thinking. Clip above.
