The Party Of Change

There's no way in hell I was gonna watch the Speechifying of Jamakane last night, but I did grab a bucket this morning and try to make it through the NYT online article about it.

Standing in the center of an arena here, surrounded by thousands of Republican delegates, Mr. McCain firmly signaled that he intended to seize the mantle of change Mr. Obama claimed in his own unlikely bid for his party’s nomination.

The best part of the article was the link to this Word Bubble chart:

As you can clearly see, the Dems outChange the Reps by nearly 3:1.

Suck on that, you lying sacks o' shite Dinosaurs!!

For the video - or text if you're like me and would rather have bamboo shoved under your nails than listen to Jamakane - of his acceptance speech, and lots of excellent critique/snark/wev, go check out Shakesville.

Oh, and for the record, I couldn't even make it through the article about the speech. My tummy curdled.
