Oh, What A Lovely Party!

Forget about Barack Obama's travails -- real or imagined -- for a moment.

What does it say about the state of the Republican Party that the speakers on the opening night of its national convention are a president widely considered to be one of the worst in history, a vice president who may be culpable for war crimes, a serial adulterer who used public funds on his mistress, and a Uriah Heep-ish Democratic turncoat?

Oh, yeah. And the guy being nominated is an addled septuagenarian, himself an adulterer, who doesn't even know how many houses he and his wife have and piously tries to hide behind his status as a former POW whenever the heat gets turned up.

Just asking.
