Clown shoes all the way down.

Well, the Democratic National Convention has been ... interesting.

So far the capper has been Bill Clinton finger-wagging at Donald Trump regarding how the Oval Office should be treated: 

“At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center. There’s only chaos. Just one thing never changes — his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame. The buck never stops there.”
~Bill Clinton, address to the DNC 18 AUG 2020

Blink.

Goodness. It's not like his famous quote: "I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." was a determination to deny responsibility.

His other famous quote -- to a Grand Jury, attempting to do ... something ... with the blame -- is even more famous: "That depends on what the meaning of 'is' is."

And I'd like to know just who signed off on a speech regarding how the Oval Office should be treated by the former President who used a 20-year-old female intern as a cigar humidor.

Really, folks? This was a good idea?

It's a maxim that mockery ends political campaigns. You can survive scandals, -- hell, you can even drown a woman in a car -- and go on to have a lengthy political career; but the moment you become a laughing-stock you're done.

I'd say that someone needs to point out to the "Progressives" that if the jokes write themselves regarding your convention and your candidates, things might be a little rocky; but, as Le Petit Caporal once allegedly said, "Never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake."

Ah, well. At least the memes coming out of the Democratic National Convention should be brutal.

Carry on, "Progressives".

On top of everything else, their campaign message would seem to be, "Ordinary people, we hate you. Vote for us so we can burn down your world."

Now, that may not be the absolutely worst possible message for a campaign, but until somebody runs on legalizing pedophilia and cannibalism it'll do.

Hey Lawdog;

You know it was bad when your opponent gets a bump in the rating DURING your convention...

I still wonder WHAT their actual platform is, other than 'We're NOT Trump'...

@CSP Schofield: Well, they're not BLATANTLY running on that whole pedo/cannibal platform, but if you read between the lines...
