This has been a very big week....great speeches at the Democratic Convention by various politicians, humble citizens (many former Republicans...where did the Dems find those!), and of course, Barack Obama's acceptance of the nomination for President and his choice of Joe Biden as his veep.
The subsequent scramble by the Republicans to find someone who will be on the McCain ticket resulted in the hilarious choice of a political light weight from the great State of Alaska: if the Republicans think women will vote Republican just because there is a woman on the ticket...please! Republicans from the State of Washington are not attending the convention and are trying to disguise their republicanness and distance themselves from McCain/Bush by calling themselves GOP, thinking no one will remember that GOP is Republican! There is a very nasty and close race here in the State of Washington for governor, and Republican Dino(as in dinosaur?) Rossi is going all out in his attempt to unseat Christine Gregoire.
Be sure to check out David Horsey's political cartoons from the convention, as well as his cartoons of the Bush Empire.
