美国的党代会

奥运之后本来大家都有些空落.下班回家看啥节目啊!好像生活突然没有了重心. 然后,美国的党代会就隆重登场了.

上个礼拜是民主党的.奥巴马古典的流畅的让人想到当年罗马共和国的演讲让人回肠荡气. 民主党人纷纷满意而又带点鳄鱼眼泪味道的说,下个礼拜的麦肯怎么比得了啊?

这个礼拜是共和党.先是令人大跌眼镜的名不见经传女副总统上台,发表了一篇宛如高中校花竞选啦啦队长似的演讲,把黑的说成白的.又阴险又堂皇. 说得众共和党员们欢欣鼓舞. 顿时想到 Bill Mahr 的名言 “American people at the end of the day … get the leader they deserve.” (说归其美国群众只配有他们应得的领袖). 如果说到底,美国总统竞选竟然比不过高中生们选最舞会之王的水平,如果美国总统竞选不过是 popularity contest (校花竞选), 那我们还有什么好说的. 美国人就配有这种糟糕的领导.

看完昨天的麦肯演讲,我立马上了奥巴马网站捐钱去了. 虽然不是我喜欢的希拉里,但是民主党里随便一个都比共和党这些渣滓强. 美国人民到底有多愚昧无知,我们十一月揭晓. 过去两届总统选举已经让我对所谓的民主制度失望透了.再来一根稻草的话,我想我也要开始倾向于中国的中央集权模式了.

  1. 给我印象最深的是CNN镜头里的现场观众。一大片民主党员和共和党员大眼眼看去样子是非常不一样的。democrats真实一些。republican让人感到一丝畏惧。

    恶人谷里有人说了句很形象的话:”民主党的现场尽是知识分子摸样的人物,共和党就是乡绅,土财主.” 哈哈.

  2. Have you ever read the book “The Obama Nation”?

    I admit I was moved to tears myself while watching the Demos in Denver. However there is always that thing called “lip service”. I don’t like McCain that much either. It seems that we’re short of qualified leaders nowadays. However president is only one major piece of the chess game.

  3. I noticed the book “The Obama Nation” at Costco the other day. Prominently on the cover, below the name of the author Jerome Corsi, was this description: “#1 New York Times bestselling coauther of Unit for Command, attacking the presidential candidacy of John Kerry”. Four years ago, this book gave rise to the term “Swiftboating” (i.e. smear campaign). So it’s the same tactics again, four years later? I wonder how many people will buy it this time.

    I watched Jon Stewart Daily show video last night: http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/videos.jhtml (go to “John McCain’s Big Acceptance Speech”). You will find out the Speech was almost identical to GWB’s 8 years ago, taunting the same ‘Change’ slogan! As a side note, Jon Stewart Daily Show is really good with uncovering lots of news footage that completely contrary to what Palin and McCain are saying in the RNC (in their own words!).

    Speaking of trying the same tactics. 美国的red state看来就好这一口. 有什么法子? 民主有啥好的? NND.
