Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer joined Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly on America’s Election Headquarters to give his take on First Lady Michelle Obama’s address and the first day of the Democratic National Convention.
“If I hear one more story about people walking eight miles in the snow without shoes, uphill, both ways, I’m going to start longing for a little Clint Eastwood spontaneity out here,” Krauthammer began, referring in part to a recurring theme that surfaced once again in San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro’s keynote address delivered tonight.
On the overall message of Tuesday’s speakers, he said the party “spoke endlessly” of government spending, and “re-enforced the notion that they are completely government-centered in their ideology.”
All of the above was part of this, but somehow got edited out:
Mr. Krauthammer also noted that he knew a lot about Barack Obama before Mrs. Obama's speech, but that he didn't know Mr. Obama went dumpster diving for his furniture, nor that he wore shoes that were too small. Those bits were edited out of the video above, too. But we did learn that Mr. Obama cares, yanno?
Full disclosure: yes, I watched Mrs. Obama's speech. In its entirety, wherein I also learned that I have a heretofore unacknowledged masochistic streak.
In other news... I watched Mrs. Obama quite by accident. I was dozing away on the couch last evening when SN2 called at 2315 hrs to chat about the DNC and other stuff. Sam knows I keep late hours and his hours were even later... seein' as how he lives on Eastern Time (but he's on leave this week). So we chatted a bit and then he ran off to bed. I tried to get back to sleep but the body/brain combination had other ideers, so we switched on Fox News just about the time Shelly gave her speech. And we watched.
I'm trying to get back on a "normal" sleeping schedule, without much luck. There's a reason for that: my Adventures In Modern Dentistry (Part Deux) begin tomorrow at 0730 hrs. Dr. Thompson does all his surgeries just shortly after oh-dark-thirty, the rationale being he's at his best at that time. Well, that's easy for HIM to say, much less so for me. Tomorrow I'll have to (a) get up in what is usually the middle of my night, (b) endure a couple o' two hours in the dental chair shortly thereafter, and (c) do ALL that without the benefit of bein' even slightly caffeinated, for we must fast before we have five or six teeth removed. AND there's to be no alcohol for 12 hours before and 24 hours after the procedure. As for the alcohol... I can comply with the former demand, it's the latter bit I may have trouble with.
