I spent this week in Camp Vagina, aka the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. I call it Camp Vagina because attendees heard more about genitals than any ideas on how to fix President Obama’s broken economy. Overall, for a convention to promote a campaign with the theme of “Forward,” Democrats sure spent a lot of time looking backwards.
Trying to get the audience to look backwards makes perfect sense when you consider the endless parade of parasites and degenerates who marched across the stage.
Here’s a diary, of sorts, of what I saw.
The DNC was gaveled to order by convention Chairman Tony Villar.
You probably know him by another name – Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles … the man who, just the Friday before, told the media Republicans couldn’t just trot out speakers with Hispanic surnames and expect to win Hispanic votes.
Tony knows well what’s in a name, particularly an Hispanic name. He was Tony Villar, regular guy, for his entire life until he entered politics and added his wife’s maiden name to his in an attempt to appeal to the large Hispanic vote in California. The story goes he added his wife’s name as a sign of his love for her. He loved her so much he soon thereafter was caught in an affair with a local TV reporter. But when measured against the cast of characters the Democrats trotted out there, Villar was par for the course.
Other speakers on the night included former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – two people almost as responsible as President Obama for the economic mess in which we find ourselves. Naturally, they were received as heroes.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took time off from the busy job standing idle while an alarming number of shootings plague his city to come and party for the week. Were he to have an R after his name, the media would’ve crucified him. But he doesn’t, so let the good times roll.
Lilly Ledbetter, self-appointed champion of equal pay for women, took to the stage to extoll the virtues of the Obama administration … which pays women in the White House significantly less than male employees. The irony went both unnoticed by the crowd and unmentioned by the media.
Nancy Keenan, President of NARAL, then spoke to remind everyone of how committed Democrats are to making taxpayers cover the cost of abortions. She loves abortions. The crowd loved abortions. I half expected Keenan to call for a law mandating women get pregnant so they could be forced to have one. But the Democrats aren’t there … yet.
