Obama Survives Denver

Whew, earlier this week the feds arrested what appeared to be a hit team intent on removing Senator Obama from the ballot, permanently. A scope mounted .22 caliber rifle isn't really a great long range snipers weapon. It can hurt, it can even kill, but it has nothing like a .308 or even a .50 killing power. There wasn't enough range and apparently the would be killers had no real shot at getting thru the security setup.

Hillary and Bill did their best to look good, revise history, and give BHO a backhanded boost. I don't think it will work. Buyers remorse is going to set in and the folks who fell under his spell are going to be scratching their heads wondering what they got themselves into.

All week the DNC raked in the bux both figuratively and literally. Let's face it, Hillary was the one shot for a convention fight and she bailed out. Without a fight, what is the point of a convention? The point is that while the DNC likes to posture about ethics, the convention is also a feeding frenzy of lobbyists. So we have the single biggest money pit in Colorado and the nations largest pep rally.

Next week, the RNC gets to do their thing. The only real interest I will have in it is statistical. How much money, how many people, and what promises made that won't be kept?

At least now that the conventions are half over, we can look down the road and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there.
