NYC GOP Convention's Low Expectations
The Economist says expectations for the GOP Convention in New York "are so low that they can only be exceeded. If the president finds one New Yorker who, unable to catch a ride out of town, discovers that Republicans are not only human, but likeable, it will be one more vote than history would suggest he could get."
Ted Rall warns that delegates to the Republican National Convention "shouldn't expect to be treated to our standard out-of-towner treatment. The Republican delegates here to coronate George W. Bush are unwelcome members of a hostile invading army... Republicans who venture outside the Garden deserve the abuse ordinary New Yorkers will likely inflict upon them...
Republicans are neofascists now, and that's why New Yorkers good and true will be yelling at them to go back home."
