    Honestly, he's staying on target and not fucking this up really. It's not good or inspiring, but the delivery is competent.

    If Ivanka were running for president instead of her father I'd be slightly impressed for who the Republicans chose. She's actually coming across as reasonable, moderate and has good oratory skills...which is something we haven't seen in this entire convention.

    The problem is, though, that she'd still be a Republican:



    @EWErickson: "Stay at home moms will be second class citizens in Trump's America."

    Is she actually a Republican? I figured at best she's unaffiliated. Most of her speeches I've seen paint her as a moderate.

    ugh fuck that "politically correct" phrasing bullshit. I just automatically translate it to "treating people with respect" in my head like Neil Gaiman recommends.

    Yeah, she's the most competent person in that family by a huge margin. Also transparently a Democrat.

    A real actual Democrat? Or a Megan McCain who is totes a Dem but doesn't realize it?

    How well is he delivering the speech?

    They couldn't even have 35 fake flags in a row. They had to cut and mirror them over.

    I would wager that she's never voted before and has no idea about which party supports what.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    He doesn't have secret service bodyguards yet, right?! Those people on stage are just stand-ins, right?

    He has had secret service protection for a long time.

    Candidates get them early. Obama had them like a week after he announced, for obvious reasons.
