Self-Parody in St. Paul

As “jumped the shark” applies to television and “nuked the fridge” applies to movies, lemme just say that, in the realm of politics, the Republican National Convention really “earned the desk” last night :

Why is it that the GOP seems to think that American elections should all just be a giant veteran-fluffing competition? You know how I like to honor the military? By trying to keep our soldiers (which includes my step-brother who’s currently in Iraq) from being murdered by Iraqi extremists and by reuniting them with their families.
