The Republican National Convention has begun in Tampa, Florida.  August 28 was the first full day of business with much more to come.  Democrats will have their turn next week in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Are you watching?

One does not have to be a Republican to watch the convention.  All you need is a mild interest in politics or a major interest in drama.  Maybe your favorite TV show got bumped by the convention, but the drama of the convention is even better.  I wouldn't believe it if it were a movie.  Turns out, it's real life.


The dishonest methods on display both on the convention floor and behind the scenes in Tampa on Tuesday were embarrassing.  Embarrassing to honest politicians, I think there are a few.  And embarrassing to anyone who believes that the business conducted at any of our national political party conventions is important and should be conducted fairly.
