Why on earth is Schwarzenegger doing this? "If you believe [X], then you are a Republican. If you believe [Y], then you are a Republican...." It's hectoring people into party identification when you'd think the Republicans would be trying to reach out to the happily unaffiliated.
And then he just said in effect, that anyone who thinks we have economic hard times is a "girlie man." Job just got outsourced? Here's a quarter -- call someone who cares, wuss! And this is "compassion night," the supposed yin to last night's yang.
"Moderate convention"? I've been in and out tonight -- I heard bits of Bill Frist and Rod Paige before this -- but all I'm hearing is red-meat Republicanism.
But the press has had "moderate" drummed into its head for so many days that it thinks this is moderation. But it's not -- it's Live Republican Or Die. I can't imagine how the hell this is going to sway apolitical undecided voters.
