Morrissey - Every Day Is Like Sunday
It's Sunday and the convention high of soaring rhetoric by Democrats makes way for the Republican speak, as we gird up for their convention beginning tomorrow. As I look upon the list of scheduled guests there's one name that catches my eye, Cindy McCain, who will be appear on two of the morning shows. What are the chances even one of them will ask her about her husband's reputed hot temper or his increasing forgetfulness or his off-the-wall judgment that led him to nominate a newcomer in national politics as his running mate? I'll bet my breakfast that she will be asked how many homes she owns. McCain supporters Lindsey Graham, Joe Lieberman, Rudy Giuliani, Tim Pawlenty, Charlie Crist and Carly Fiorina will all be on as well, presumably to spin how Palin was a more "Maverick-y" choice than well, them, for VP
