ANN ALTHOUSE: “So…. what the hell? I’m sitting here, eating my arugula salad and zucchini ‘pasta,’ catching up on last night’s ‘Daily Show,’ sipping my chardonnay, waiting for it to be late enough to bother to start watching the proceedings at the Democratic National Convention, and suddenly Barack Obama has been nominated by acclamation. The ostensible point of the convention, choosing the nominee, occurs more than an hour outside of prime time? WTF?!” I liked the roll call of the states when I was a kid. Oh, well.

MORE: “This convention is all about the Clintons, isn’t it? She dominated last night. She controls the nomination tonight. And the rest of the evening is the lead-up to Bill. How awful for Barack… in his moment of triumph.”
