I made some quick notes on The Ketchup Consort's acceptance speech.

He said "I was born in the West Wing". Yes, and he still thinks he is living in some liberal Hollywood script. Note that when he talks about health care as a right he says "we will make it so." He was no doubt inspired because he thought Jean-Luc was a fellow Frenchman.

He said "you can't go home again", yet admits that at least he went back to his ideological home, when as a child he rode his bike into communist east Berlin.

One very good bit of news is his statement that "I will appoint an Attorney General who will uphold the Constitution of the United States." Clearly this means he won't be appointing She Who Must Not Be Named to that job.

He said "We will add 40,000 active duty troops. ... We will end the back-door draft of the National Guard and reservists." That's right, he'll replace it with an open up-front draft of poor, uneducated young people, thus reducing their unemployment the hard way.

More liberal hypocrisy is his crack that "It's time for those who talk about family values to start valuing families." On one hand they all condemn the lenient results of legal entanglements by the Bush children (and Jeb's as well), yet here they complain by implication that the girls are not treated well. You can't have it both ways.

He asked what does it mean when poor people are sleeping on the doorstep of the White House itself? Obviously, it means the Secret Service isn't doing their job, and they need to get right on top of this.

Finally, his line that "I want to pray humbly that God is on our side" makes me recall the old saying that God always answers prayers, but sometimes the answer is "No."
