@Hoffa You once again avoid the point and purpose of my post. Not surprising but at least you are consistent.

@Hoffa "After the ratings juggernaut that was the RNC," Here is your juggernaut statistics: "All told, just over 20 million people were watching last night on the Nielsen-rated networks, compared to 37 million for night two of the RNC in 2008. Night one of the 2012 RNC was roughly on par with night one of the 2008 RNC ratings-wise, making the gap all the more dramatic." http://thepoliticalcarnival.net/2012/08/30/quickie-tv-ratings-for-rnc-convention-networks-lose-17-million-viewers-vs-2008/ Nice fact based analysis on your part...

@ John Feia - TV viewership in general is down, something that your linked analysis doesn't mention a word about. Let's wait to compare to the DNC convention ratings number, shall we? A current Yahoo! poll shows that nearly 70% of respondents do not plan to watch any of the DNC convention. I predict ultra low ratings numbers, that in comparison to the RNC numbers, will prove the RNC convention to be the true juggernaut of the two conventions.

@John Feia - You mentioned a yacht excursion, that in all reality was a campaign/fund raising function as opposed to being an official part of the RNC convention, in comparison to discriminatory caucuses scheduled to take place as an official part of the upcoming DNC convention. You're right - I don't see the point that your trying to make because you're comparing apples to oranges. Obama also has exclusive closed doors campaign fund raising functions - like his little dinner parties with George Clooney, Wall Street money men, etc. The fact of the matter is that you can't compare apples to apples in this instance because the GOP did not do anything like what the discriminating/segregating Dems are about to do in Charlotte! Message from the GOP - we are all ONE country! Message from the Dems - we discriminate/segregate people by race, age, ethnicity, gender, etc. The messages are clear.

lil' boy Mikey Tate and his sidekick Gramey Zee are the gifts that keep on giving. I hope they continue their actions and their rants for years to come.
