Our Town

After attending the last three party conventions in person, it’s an odd thing to watch one on tv — by which I mean C-Span; I’m watching the convention right now, not the talking heads babbling over it. And the thing that strikes me is how amateurish the whole thing seems. It’s as if a high school drama department with access to a lot of money and high tech equipment put the show together. The interstitial stuff is really cringeworthy.
