Clinton Chooses Tim Kaine as VP

Leading up to the Democratic National Convention – that starts today in Philadelphia – Hillary Clinton has chosen her running mate: Tim Kaine.

Kaine is the Senator from Virgina and considered a safe – although maybe a bit boring – choice. He was the former chairman of the DNC and speaks fluent Spanish.

Kaine won’t energize progressives like Elizabeth Warren might have. He also won’t energize feminists – while Kaine supports his party’s pro-choice positon, he has said that privately he opposes abortion as a catholic.

But he comes from a swing state with a Democratic Governor, so his election wouldn’t loose the Dems a Senate seat. (Which was one of the main arguments against Warren, now that Democrats believe they have a chance to take back the Senate.)

On a more personal note, I once witnessed Tim Kaine win a spelling bee against political journalists – which means that a) journalists are really bad spellers, but also b) whatever Kaine says, we will know that at least he spelled it correctly. 😉

Carly Fiorina Sings. She Sings!

I know that neither Ted Cruz nor Carly Fiorina are candidates from New York, but when one of them starts singing on stage, I still have to share it.

I mean, come on, have you seen it? 

It’s like a scene in a horror movie before someone dies. Or the best piece of comedy ever written. 

SNL won’t be able to top this, because the comedy version will never be as good as the original.

And I just can’t stop watching it.
