How to get more people to watch the convention

If the networks are really concerned about dwindling ratings for the national conventions (something which, frankly, they themselves must take some blame for, as they do a better job of anti-marketing them than Beelzebud Selig did with MLB before the last labor agreement), then perhaps they ought to consider getting TBogg to script them. It's probably too tame for FOX, though.

Oy. I don't know which is worse, the creative fibbing or the truthful fact that the damn Padres did take 3 of 4 (I wanted a split).

I rather enjoyed the Convention coverage The Daily Show had this week. It's all I've seen of the Convention and I'm a happier person for it.

My next-door neighbor invited me to some party she's throwing when Bush makes his acceptance speech. If it was to make fun of it, I'd have accepted, but it's not. I think I'd break out in hives if I had to watch that speech while surrounded by a bunch of Republicans. Or spontaneously combust.
