I understand there is a norovirus outbreak. Write your own joke.
Melania Trump has been accused of plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech. And yes, whether the fault is her own, that of a speechwriter, or someone else, I believe she did. However, I consider the real tragedy here not that she did it, but that what she lifted was so banal. Why bother? Is it really so hard to babble some rot about children and dreams?
If your headline celebrity speaker is Chachi/Charles in Charge, maybe you’d better retool the evening. Even Mitt Romney managed Clint Eastwood—an unambiguous big star.
Every time I see Melania Trump’s photo flash by—on a news site, in my Facebook feed, or whatever—I think it’s Caitlin Jenner.
My level of attention really is at an all-time low, so perhaps the value of my assessment is rather more limited. But it seems to me that Democrats and other Hillary boosters are exercising no restraint whatsoever, spiking whatever balls they perceive are there to spike and just generally pointing and laughing. It would behoove them to remember that this election is historic because both candidates are disasters.
