Throwing a virtual convention is no easy task, but the first night of the Republican National Convention failed so miserably it felt like a monotonous road trip with the parents, when you were 7, and they controlled the radio.

With the country’s odometer ticking toward the four-year mark, speaker after speaker promised America was headed to someplace wonderful as long as President Trump remained in charge.

Like indistinguishable sign posts, they each gave speeches on the same stage, in front of the same flags, from the same podium, above the same 2016 slogan: “Make America Great Again!”

Are we there yet? How about now? When exactly will we arrive at Great, and will there be clean bathrooms there?...

 :lol:....... yeah, the latimes has it about right. The Dems put on a pretty good show last week. The Repugnants are DESPERATELY trying to replicate it, but with more repulsive rhetoric.

Btw, klg, thanks for posting links to stories by the latimes. That paper doesn’t seemingly receive as many accolades as the NYT or WashPo, but,editorially, it is equal in quality to those two papers.   :clap:

It most definitely is. The LA Times just suffers from the PERCEPTION from the old days that it's not a serious paper. But, as you said it's just as good as the two standard bearers in my opinion. :nod:
