This column is so boring that I had a problem staying awake. Where's the insight?

In poker, the rule of thumb is that you can only bluff a good player, because a fool will chase a hand hoping to win.

In political analysis, you can only gain insight if you have a brain. Sorry, Donna...you just don't qualify it would seem.

Tampa, Fla., was like the Republican National Convention delegation -- older, more experienced, less excitable. Tampa has hosted the Super Bowl; the city had lots of space and nothing to prove. There was a been there/done that feel to the entire affair. Tampa Bay is used to welcoming visitors and has plenty of nice hotels to host them.

You say a hurricane is coming? No worries. They laid out some sandbags, closed up for a night and started up a day later. No need to rush a convention. People don't come to Florida to be in a hurry.
