“You may not agree with Mitt’s positions on issues or his politics,” Ann Romney said in a nationally broadcast speech on the first full day of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. “But let me say this to every American who is thinking about who should be our next president: No one will work harder, no one will care more, and no one will move heaven and earth like Mitt Romney to make this country a better place to live.”


So let me get this straight - I don't like his ideology, but I should support him because he's working really hard to do stuff I don't want him to do?

Yeah HuffPo is in the "they will print anything that will sell adspace" category, but every once in a while they get a good one. It's a rare day that I go to any specific news site and just start skimming for stories, most of the time I only end up on a specific news site because it showed up on my google feed. I'm sure that's not exactly the most unbiased way of perusing the news but it does definitely take me to both sides of the spectrum's media outlets on most days.

I'm most sleazed out by the lying about his marathon time. You don't misremember an hour. And races are public record--did he think no one would look? You're running for VP, dude, people fact check.

The Republicans apparently played "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy at their convention. The mother of Phil Lynott, the band's late singer, is NOT best pleased:

Quote:
"Mitt Romney's opposition to gay marriage and to civil unions for gays makes him anti-gay, which is not something that Philip would have supported," a furious Philomena Lynott told the Irish rock magazine Hot Press.

(it's the fourth item)

You'd really think that the Republicans would have given up on playing anything beisides Ted Nugent, and public domain. Maybe Ted Nugent playing Camptown Races? I mean, every damn time they play something they get caught, and someone bites back. I'm sure its happened to the Dems, but probably not as often.
