Well, tonight’s the big night, when Hillary Clinton will officially accept the nomination to become the Democratic Party’s nominee for President. I don’t think you could ask much more from Bernie Sanders and even if a handful of bummed out Bernie supporters are getting a lot of publicity (because the media loves to amplify that sort of thing), polls show that a greater percentage of Sanders supporters are planning to vote for Clinton than Clinton supporters (the PUMAs, if you recall) voted for Obama back in 2008. And, really, the thought of Vladimir Putin and the Russian Oligarchy running our government (and our economy) for the next 4 – 8 years and beyond (I envision a lot of Supreme Court justices mysteriously dying of polonium-210-induced radiation poisoning, leading to a 9-Scalia Supreme Court) should terrify any non-insane person.

Because I’m not a masochist, I watched none of the Republican National Convention – especially not last night’s official coronation of Herr Drumpf. Still, it’s impossible to ignore these things completely and there were at least a few moments of amusement. Wife #3 lifting part of her speech from Michelle Obama was kind of funny, for instance. Ted Cruz getting booed off the stage for not endorsing the guy that called Cruz’s wife ugly and said Cruz’s old man was palin’ around with Lee Harvey Oswald (I’m forced to admit a tiny nugget of respect for Cruz for that) was pretty funny. And, while it technically wasn’t about the convention, seeing Roger Ailes being forced to resign from Fux News was nice to see as well.

I’m pretty sure there are no longer any 7-Elevens around where I live anymore (a quick search tells me the closest one is about 10 miles away from me). But if you have one near you, you can go get a free
Squishy Slurpee today, because it’s 7/11. It also happens to be my anniversary – 18 years. I’m celebrating by being back at work after 10 days off (though I was on call this weekend, so I was only “off” in the sense that I wasn’t getting paid). Fortunately for my wife – this, coincidentally, is her anniversary as well – and the dogs, she’s off today.

AS if the prospect of a Trump presidency wasn’t chilling enough, according to Cris Cizilla, Newt Gingrinch is the favorite (amongst a group of thoroughly depressing prospects) to be chosen as Herr Drumpf’s running mate. Though I take everything I read in the Washington Post with a large pillar of salt ever since Jeff Bezos took it over, the prospect of Professor Pollygrip being one fat old guy heartbeat from the presidency probably even scarier than I find the prospect of a Trump presidency.
