I don’t know why. I told myself it was the responsible thing to do. After all, I’m told this is an important election. The most important election ever! Again.
So, I watched.
Ann Romney read her wedding toast much too fast. And there was a sex gaffe in there somewhere, I think. She muddled a few words. She loves her husband. He’s modest. We just don’t know him because he’s too modest to brag about how wonderful he is. But he won’t fail us. He won’t. And we should all just trust in their wealthy hearts, because it’s about love, and not taxes. Love.
“Nah! Forget love. This. This is about respect,” my governor gesticulated. Chris Christie jabbed himself playfully. A Sicilain Irish guy from New Jersey giving the keynote speech at the RNC? Get the hell outta here!!
He lamented his late mother. He thanked his attending father. He highlighted his accomplishments in the field of pot holes that used to be New Jersey. I hadn’t noticed this, but apparently things in my state are just great now. Oh, and the pride, and don’t forget respect, and USA! USA! God Bless America!! And Chris Christie is a household name. Christie for president in 2016: Whaddya gonna do? Oh, and don’t forget to vote for Mitt Romney. Because it’s very important. Almost as important as Chris Christie.
To be honest, I was still reeling from Rick Santorum’s creepy “HANDS” rant earlier in the program. Even the actors they hired to play the audience weren’t sure about applauding for that mess. So, by the time Christie was fully deflated, and right around the time Chris Matthews started making Churchill comparisons, I found myself wishing I’d watched the Bar Rescue marathon on Spike—which was my first choice. At least that show is about helping other people.
