LA JOLLA - God bless America, and how's everybody?

Mitt Romney finished writing the draft of his convention speech Thursday after he'd spent days re-writing and editing his speech text. It was tough for him. He was an English major at Harvard and he was talking to a nation that thinks Ivanhoe was a Russian hooker.

Mitt Romney sent the GOP Convention goers home roaring Thursday and ready to do battle with Barack Obama and the Democrats. It may all come down the independent vote. Webster's Dictionary defines an independent as a Republican who's in showbusiness.

Clint Eastwood electrified the GOP convention Thursday when he walked onstage to introduce Mitt Romney. He's a huge favorite of religious conservatives. Evangelicals believe there is no theory of evolution, just a list of people Dirty Harry has allowed to live.

Mitt Romney accepted the GOP nomination Thursday before a roaring and cheering crowd of delegates in Tampa as the balloons came down. These things aren't as much fun as they used to be. Every time a balloon popped, housing prices dropped another one percent.

The Democratic Convention begins in Charlotte Monday with dimming prospects for success this fall. Polls show the party must deal with the need to improve America's business climate. The economy is so awful that even Bill and Hillary are traveling together.

Yahoo's Washington editor David Chalian was fired for saying Republicans enjoyed partying in Tampa while black people were drowning in New Orleans. Don't feel badly for him. ABC and CNN were in a bidding war for him before his resume came out of the printer.
