But there are a few things I have to mention briefly:
I thought McCain's speech was actually not too bad if viewed out of the context of the rest of the convention. He isn't a great speaker, but he seriously toned down the war against liberals raging basically up to that point at the convention.
If you watched it in context of the rest of the convention, however, it seemed weird. So you want to reach across the aisle, by leading a group of people who have proven for three days that they are hell bent on the destruction of those across the aisle? How does that sell?
Maybe John McCain really is uncomfortable running his campaign the way he has been. It seemed to me that every time he told an obvious untruth or really went after Obama his face sort of contorted in a half smile, half wince. So his character may not be enough that he is unwilling to do those things, but it is at least enough that he knows its wrong.
In no way related to the previous topics, the Oklahoma City team has named itself the Thunder. I mentioned previously, what a lame choice this would be. Now I must say what a lame choice it is. I still plan on going to OKC to watch some games, but I am not thrilled by the prospect of having to hear Garth Brooks sing "Thunder Rolls" during the game. On the plus side, they'll probably also use AC/DC's "Thunderstruck." It will be like you're at the RNC.
