Let me suggest that if you’re looking to make a good faith effort at hearing your opponents out and assuming the best about them, skip their convention (and pray they skip yours). Skip all the fact checking articles the next morning, too.

Conventions aren’t for the opponents and they don’t run on factual precision.

Don’t let the offensive convention bombast deter you from actually listening to the people who love it when given the chance.

One thought on “Conventions

  1. Bombast is a good word for what’s going on. WGN radio replayed some parts of speeches from last night, full of yells and screams as if having to project over a huge arena full of people. Then they calmly mentioned that very few people were actually in the room with the speakers. I found that more interesting than trying to remember what the screams were about. Thanks for your observations.
