Slow weekend on the blog as everyone is participating in Labor Day festivities. Enjoy your holiday weekend and I’ll be back on Tuesday.
John McCain has selected the Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, as his running mate for the 2008 Elections. The official announcement is expected to come momentarily at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. This is coming off the heels of Obama’s historic acceptance speech last night at the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
Personally, I feel that a woman VP is not a bad choice to help balance McCain’s image as a conservative old man. Unfortunately, I don’t think Palin is quite the right choice to be this woman. She is VERY inexperienced as she has only been governor for a year in Alaska. The democrats will have a field day ripping into her as they have already unearthed that she is under investigation for trying to get her ex brother-in-law fired from a committee position. When she is debating against Joe Biden, she will be slaughtered like a lamb as he literally has 35x the amount of experience as her. McCain is already looking weak coming off the DNC and this pick will not help him enough in the long run.
Last night former President Bill Clinton gave his speech at day 3 of the Democratic National Convention. It was a tremendous speech that reminded us why Bill Clinton was the greatest president in my generation. Tonight Barack Obama speaks in front of a crowd estimated of 80,000 people. Only the second time a candidate will accept a nomination in a setting – the first was John F. Kennedy. Here’s the full vid of Clinton’s speech:
Senator Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, kicked off the Democratic National Convention last night in Denver. It was believed that this would be the first convention that he would miss in 40 years as he recently went under surgery for a brain tumor but he still made it and gave an inspiring speech. If there is one person to bring the party together, it’s probably Ted Kennedy. Tonight Hillary Clinton will be giving a speech, check back tomorrow for video of that.
Here at the blog we have been chronicling the upcoming, much anticipated release of T.I.’s new album “Paper Trail” due out September 30th. Another song has leaked off the record, this one is a duet with Rihanna and features a sample of the Numa Numa song featured on a viral video from a few years ago. Take a gander:
Quite possibly the greatest video game commercial ever.
