Why do I always watch the Republican convention? 

I can't help it. I'm curious. It's easy to watch the Democratic convention and nod my head in agreement with everything that is said from the glorious podium. But it takes a special kind of masochism to spend my free time watching Rudy Guliani shake his fists in front of a gigantic Windows 98 screen saver.

I wanted to watch "Sarah" but first, I had to sit through "Rudy." And he didn't disappoint. Pulling no punches, he raked Obama over the coals and it hurt... a little. Mostly, his critique was entertaining, well-delivered, virile and a little rude. My partner Shawn said, "He's allowed to be a jerk 'cuz he's from New York." I think he's right.

People say Sarah Palin looks like Karen Walker (Megan Mullally) from Will & Grace, but I think she's more of a Tina Fey. When they announced that Sarah Palin would be John McCain's running mate I thought to myself: The Republicans have really done it. They picked the perfect candidate to spice up John McCain's decrepit campaign — I, for one, was getting bored. So I'm watching her tonight — even though I know that baby isn't hers.

Keep your enemies close America!

P.S. I kinda liked the Greek columns you bitch!
