QUOTES AND QUOTABLE
“ …And I’m hoping I’m not going to have to start brushing up on my ‘Dora the Explorer’ to understand some of the speeches given this week.”
CNN Commentator and Trump Supporter, criticizing Tim Kaine’s use of Spanish
BIG CUP: THE WEEK’S TOP STORIES
Like most of the world, I survived the GOP Convention spectacle by not watching it. I missed the parade of grieving (and accusatory) relatives blaming Hillary Clinton for the deaths of their loved ones. I missed Trump’s third wife extolling his loyalty with words stolen from a Michelle Obama speech. And I missed The Donald’s grotesque Mussolini impersonation scaring the crap out of all sentient beings with a portrait of America so dire and dystopian only Kurt Russell could save us if he weren’t thirty years too old.
Hillary subsequently went with Tim Kaine, a pro-life, anti-death penalty guy (what’s with that crazy consistency?), who delivered part of his acceptance speech in Spanish. We Are All Hotel Workers Now! Gotta say I loved it.
