You don't really think you'll win, do you? Things change.
Bill Clinton's speech? Ted Kennedy's tirade against Bush? Ben Affleck on Larry King LIve discussing a possible step into the political arena? Sunday's Nazi rally? YAWN! The biggest story to come out of the convention, thus far, has not been reported by any news organization...or at least any news organization that I could track down. Here it is:
Despite a weather report predicting several days of thunderstorms, umbrellas are not allowed in or around the Fleet Center, including "The Free Speech Zone."
So what are the organizers afraid of? A dastardly plot by the Penguin to shoot protestors with his trademark umbrella gun? A terrorist packing an umbrella that converts into a whirling chainsaw? The possibility that a single anarchist demonstrator may avoid catching a cold?
This seems like the sort of thing Michael Moore would jump all over but he's been busy arguing with Bill O'Reily.
Gracias, AP, gracias.
