So, what happened? Did Romney win?
I ran across this the other day and thought it would be fun to revisit it: my post about the 2008 convention.
I listened yesterday to Mitt Romney’s address to the RNC, courtesy of C-SPAN’s Podcast of the Week. The whole thing’s sort of a spectacular mishmash of liberals-bad-conservatives-good cliches, brazen claims, and outright lies, but I especially liked this awkward metaphor in the context of the GOP’s ongoing War on Science:You know, for decades now, the Washington sun has been rising in the east - you see, Washington has been looking to the eastern elites, to the editorial pages of the Times and the Post, and to the broadcasters from the p - from the coast! (Boos.) Yeah.Okay, well… if you guys want to look for a sunrise in the west, you keep on looking. I’ll be over here.
If America really wants to change, it’s time to look for the sun in the west, cause it’s about to rise and shine from Arizona and Alaska!
