"... the overall effect was large, vague, moist, and undirected: the Waterworld of white self-pity."

Hitch has a few thoughts about this past weekend's Lawn Chair Rally and Lardfest. Here's another nugget that appealed:

What does it take to believe that Christianity is an endangered religion in America or that the name of Jesus is insufficiently spoken or appreciated? Who wakes up believing that there is no appreciation for our veterans and our armed forces and that without a noisy speech from Sarah Palin, their sacrifice would be scorned? It's not unfair to say that such grievances are purely and simply imaginary, which in turn leads one to ask what the real ones can be. The clue, surely, is furnished by the remainder of the speeches, which deny racial feeling so monotonously and vehemently as to draw attention.
