In case you missed the Great Tent Revival last night, at the end of his dramatic speech, wheelchair-bound Madison Crawthorn (he of the Nazi Bucket List fame) stood up, like a scene cut from Bob Roberts:

Tim Robbins blushes.
Walking termite buffet Mike Pence made his nomination acceptance speech by praising Dear Leader, who did a drop-by mid-speech, because it is always about himself;
“There they were. A team as always: Vice President Pence and his wife, Karen. On the third night of the Republican National Convention, the couple walked out to the assembled audience at Fort McHenry in Baltimore holding hands. She took a seat and he stood framed by a red brick arch that was filled with American flags….
“Pence is a mediocre speaker. He mostly spends his time uttering the name of President Donald J. Trump in sentence after sentence. Diagram one of them and it’s likely: Noun, verb, adjective. Or more precisely: Trump. Is. Great. He likes staccato — a lazy form of emphasis.”
Mother Pence grimaced her way through, breaking as few Commandments as possible as they spoke to un-masked and un-distanced people who are gonna go back to their Hollars and spread the good word.
Anthrax Annie talked about her double-mastectomy (for some reason) and Bullshit Barbie wore white and that’s Lord Damp Nut’s salute to women.

Not mentioned: Jacob Blake, the 17-year old BLM killer, Hurricane Laura bearing-down on the gulf states, all the sports teams shutting down, and so-on.
I swear I did not watch the RNC, but reading about it this morning confirms I made the right choice.
A RNC video showing rioters setting a city street on fire in “Biden’s America” is actually a photo from Barcelona, Spain, BuzzFeed News reports.
