The Conventions

Have you been watching the conventions? Particularly the Republican convention that's taking place in Minneapolis this week. Did you see all these crazed supporters waving their signs? Some of them homemade and many of them provided by the campaigns. Let me ask you a question. What is the point of waving these signs around in a building full of people supporting the same candidate? I do not understand this. Who are they going to convince with the signs? Is it to convince themselves that they're doing the right thing by supporting their candidate? "If we all carry a sign then it must mean we're doing the right thing."

I mean, if the convention hall was hosting a competitive rally, with Obama supporters, McCain supporters, Ron Paul and Bob Barr supporters, then it would make sense. Otherwise, I think it's a waste of time waving around a sign showing you're no different than the rest of the brain dead supporters. You support John McCain. I get it. That is why you are at the Republican convention in the first place. Why else would you be there? To protest? The protesters usually get thrown out, so I don't see the point in going. I figure, if you're in a building full of fellow supporters, why bother waving a sign? Put down the sign and save your arm. I bet there were a lot of sore arms at the end of the day.

Am I the only one that feels this way?
