I’m really, really hating this convention: so many of my un-favorite politicians are giving great, unselfish speeches. Bill Richardson, just now (I’m quoting from memory):
“Make no mistake: John McCain may pay hundreds of dollars for his shoes, but we’re the ones who will pay for his flip-flops.”
Richardson also mentioned the right of workers to organize. Good for him.
Also a great riff on fighting threats “not where we imagine them to be, but where we know them to be.”
