Last night, I picked my daughter up from soccer practice around 8 and came home to have dinner with the family. We nommed burgers grilled to perfection by the other members of the Catican staff and watched Pawn Stars. I'd been following the convention on Twitter and had seen people raving about Chris Christie and Ann Romney. After everyone had dispersed from the family room, I wandered out to the Catican, fired up the old PC and took a look at the videos on C-Span.
After about 3 minutes, I gave up and wandered back inside. I'd heard all the good lines retweeted over and over again, but when you watched in 1-1 time, it wasn't that interesting. I've seen plenty of these conventions and they don't grab me any more. It's not that I'm cynical or don't trust them or get angry, they're just not interesting any more.
I guess I'm waiting for the highlight reel.
