republican national convention

Have you guys been watching this? Did you SEE Fred Thompson's speech? It looked like everybody in there was about to cry. Summary: He went into very specific detail about all the torture McCain endured during his 5.5 years of capture in Vietnam. Wow. I don't know the whole story, but I have to admit, the man seems to have some integrity.

The Huffington Post has the video and text of the speech. I encourage you to watch it.

Hmmm. Other sources indicate there were some slightly (very slightly) less honorable moments during his time there, but on the whole I don't think they detract much from the image Fred Thompson presented.

I didn't really see any of the Democratic convention, but this Republican one is definitely something to watch. It's like another world.


  1. Oh no! Neha is turning into a Republican!!

  2. lol Vijay -- well, I always enjoy reading Neha's views -- perhaps you both will enjoy this clip from the Daily Show - which, as you can imagine, gives a different spin on McCain's story (which I also admire)
