My Internet crapped out on me just as I was settling in to watch Michelle on CSpan. Thanks, Verizon! I had to listen to her on the radio, as if I were Grandma Walton or something.

When the Internet came back later, I checked out Cory Booker's speech on YouTube. I don't understand why everyone is raving about Julian Castro - Cory is the guy to watch. When's the last time Julian rescued a constituent from a burning building, eh?
And how about that Governor Deval Patrick? It sounded like a tent revivalist meeting in the convention hall while he was talking.
I'll say one thing - I watched both conventions, and it was sure easier tonight to find non-Caucasian faces on the convention floor tonight than it was last week. I'm just glad my Internet was working during Clint Eastwood's bit. I would have hated to have missed that.
And now, tell me - when did I turn into a politics geek, anyway? When I first met Larry, I never even listened to the radio. He even had to explain to me what NPR was.
He's sorry now, I'll betcha.
