I'm watching more of this than I expected to cuz my wife wants to see it. The speeches have not been great, other than Clinton's (w/resp to delivery, not content or messenger). Bradley's was better written than delivered. Hillary was awful. Jesse reminded me of Dylan in his unenunciated dotage. It's like these people have one note in which to speak, plus a volume adjuster. An exception was Sen. Bayh, who looked and sounded like a game show host (cf. Sting).
Coverage of the demos have been practically nil, as usual. ACLU is quoted as calling police behavior an "orchestrated police riot." This continues the pattern of illegal preemptive police action lawlessness in Seattle, Philly, and D.C. over the past year.
On the other hand, last night reinforces my long- held prejudice against using famous rock bands to draw crowds to demos. You get stupid kids who leave as ignorant as they came, plus the potential for indisciplined provocations.
I can't say who did exactly what, but the consensus is of a few assholes who may or may not have been anarchists. If they were the latter, they should be condemned for -- once again -- allowing the police a provocation to attack other people instead of themselves.
