(Note: Finding links to people who have good things to say about the speeches being made at the convention is pretty easy. So I’m going to periodically try to find those who take issue with the presenters say.)
Gore reportedly needed to revise his speech, and rumors are that Dean’s been told to keep his screams to a politely raised voice.
Someone forgot to tell Jimmy Carter. Carter’s speech was shockingly partisan. This is a guy who, the video intro helpfully reminded us won a Nobel peace prize. (Full text of the speech is here.)
Not surprisingly, the Republicans have a few words on this:
Jonah Goldberg is all over it: “Jimmy Carter just gave an astoundlingly nasty anti-Bush speech.”
Mitch Webber thinks Carter missed a few salient points in the speech, and says Carter’s “an asshole.”
And Power Line recalls a Boston Globe headline from years past: “More mush from the wimp.”
South End Grounds reports that around the same time as Carter was speaking, “Mr. Pot called Mr. Kettle black.”
