And the most memorable line of the night was....

Not all balloons were trial

AFTER SEVERAL HOURS READING AROUND THE UBER-BLOGSPHERE, A CONSENSUS is beginning to emerge. While Kerry said a lot of things and hit a lot of cliches out of the park, and spent weeks preparing, and days practicing gestures ( love that little thumbs up move), history will record that the single most discussed line was:

"Go balloons. Go balloons. ... I don't see any balloons....I want some goddamn balloons..... Where the f**k are the balloons?...."

-- The CNN Director over an open audio line. CNN International as well. Executions will commence at dawn.

As for the speech itself, well, as my wife commented here earlier on a different subject, "Please sleep soundly tonight knowing that your suggestions have fallen on blind ears."

Ahh, immortalized!

My work is done here.

My ears are blind, too.

It was the only time during the convention that 'Jesus' was uttered as well...
