PHILADELPHIA -- It’s really hot here. How hot is it? It’s so hot that, to get out of the sun, I actually went into the convention hall.
Usually I avoid the convention hall, because it is frankly not a fun environment. It’s sort of like a gigantic cocktail party, except that:
1. There are no cocktails.
2. There is nowhere to sit.
3. Everybody you meet is running for lieutenant governor.
4. There is always somebody shouting into a microphone about fighting for the Working People.
5. THERE ARE NO COCKTAILS.
I was in the hall when the convention was gaveled to order. Originally the gaveling was supposed to be done by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but she has been banished and was last seen fleeing on foot across southern Delaware with the Democratic Party Canine Unity Unit snapping at her heels.
