Night 3 of The Democratic Convention: They’re Yelling Again

It was not clear if any of the speakers understood that the Time Warner Cable Arena has a modern PA system, particularly former governor of Michigan, Jennifer Granholm, although in fairness, she might have been having a seizure.

Among the many important things we learned last night (again and again and again and again and again), was that Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was still dead.

Who knew?

And of course, Vice President Joe Biden was on hand to give a speech several parts of which were coherent such as, "Hello, my fellow Democrats," and "Thank you."

In between? Not so much.

"My Dad Respected Barack Obama – Would’ve Respected Barack Obama If He’d Been Around."

As John Kerry might say,

"Ask Joe Biden's dad if he's better off than he was four years ago!"

But all of that was a build up to the final speech of the evening, when the legendary orator Barack Obama took to the stage to accept the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.

And let us know that Osama bin Laden was still dead.

It’s like that guy is never going to get better.

But that’s not all he told us.  There were in fact many highlights, which we thought we would represent in song:

"Now, I won't pretend the path I'm offering is quick or easy. I never have."

"And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades."

And finally:

“Independent analysis shows that my plan would cut our deficits by $4 trillion. Last summer, I worked with Republicans in Congress to cut $1 trillion in spending.”

“I’ve signed trade agreements that are helping our companies sell more goods to millions of new customers."

“We will keep the promise of Social Security by taking the responsible steps to strengthen it — not by turning it over to Wall Street.”

If you missed any of the speech, don't worry, you've probably heard it before.

In totally unrelated news, “The U.S. labor market remains in a deep depression, generating few jobs and little if no income growth.”

However, according to Respected New York Times Columnist and Nobel Prize Winner Paul Krugman, there is:

“Nothing to see here.”

Can we somehow get Canada to take Granholm back? We don't even want anything in exchange!
