I haven’t posted Randy Rainbow videos before because, though I love them, they can be a tad over the top. But this one — “Kamala” — is all but G-rated and upbeat. And you can watch Kamala address the Convention tonight.
I really like this Convention format. It takes only 5 minutes to hear a 5-minute speech — not 10, with all the cheering. And no balloon glitches.
Did you see Michelle Monday night? John Kasich? Bernie Sanders? It was all good, in case you want to go back and watch the full two hours; but these three are really worth watching — 18 minutes, 6 and 8, respectively.
R. Hubbell on Trump’s “birtherism” calling into question Senator Harris’s qualifications (because she is the daughter of immigrants):
The Biden campaign responded with an appropriately worded retort, saying that Trump is
<< the national leader of the grotesque, racist birther movement with respect to President Obama and has sought to fuel racism and tear our nation apart on every single day of his presidency. So it’s unsurprising, but no less abhorrent that as Trump makes a fool of himself straining to distract the American people from the horrific toll of his failed coronavirus response that his campaign and their allies would resort to wretched, demonstrably false lies in their pathetic desperation. >>
The GOP has mortgaged its soul to racism. The debt will ruin the party and destroy the legacy of every Republican leader who remains silent, hoping to benefit from Trump’s effort to exploit the shameful legacy of slavery. If the GOP makes racism an explicit part of its appeal to voters, we must be no less explicit in challenging Republican candidates to denounce Trump in words of one syllable or make them own their legacy as racists. . . .
