    Well… ol’ Uncle Joe just blew a hole through the “too senile to give a speech in public” narrative wide enough to drive his campaign through. I wonder if all that expectation lowering was a good idea.
    I’m gratified. The Dems virtual convention was not bad at all. Maybe even a little good; mmmm.. I mean it was still a glorified infomercial so I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was good television but I think it was firmly in the not bad territory and that ain’t nothing.Report

      The Roll Call was cute as heck and I hope they keep that particular take on it *FOREVER*.Report

        From your lips to God(ess)’s ear! Though on the down side the Roll Call gave me a fierce hankering for calamari which you can’t get a decent plate of to save your life in land locked Minnesota. Curse you Rhode Island!Report

      The transition to “Well, we worry about his health, because he’s not out there campaigning” (the pandemic is ignored) and “Well, I worry about how he’ll handle a debate” is already well underway.

      Which is, again, the exact same sequence of ‘concerns’ and ‘worries’ deployed on behalf of Sanders in the primary. Although not, I might add, by Sanders and frankly I sincerely believe Sanders found those particular accusations as moronic as everyone else.

      If I were a cynical man, I might suspect that a coordinated attack by the same group, albeit one that is not very smart or capable of learning from their prior mistakes.Report

        I mean, seriously, they put expectations at rock bottom levels for the speech and Biden blew them out of the water. So they start making the same bar for the debates? I’m good with that kind of idiocy.Report

    The RNC convention seems to be in the comments section on this Biden speech. It’s filled with epic greatness. ^_^

    There don’t even seem to be any Democrats in there.Report

    The DNC clearly put a lot of effort and/or dollars into getting the technology for their virtual convention to work. I am very curious to see how the RNC does, since they started on their virtual version much later.Report

    There are reports that the all of the streams for the convention were managed from many-time Emmy winner Glenn Weiss’s living room.
