I intended to watch the entire Republican Party convention. But CNN’s constant cutaway’s separated me from sections I wanted to see, like the inspiring story of Bridget McCain’s adoption from one of Mother Teresa’s orphanages in Bangladesh. It seemed particularly relevant since Karl Rove used a whisper campaign about Bridget being McCain’s ‘black love child’ to swing the South Carolina primary toward George W. Bush back in the 2000 presidential contest. Bridget evidently found out about such political dirty tricks through a Google search. Pity the children of any politician dragged through the media wringer. Unfortunately, the saga of Bristol Palin and her baby has barely begun.
Bored by Fred Thompson, I switched over to the CW for the revival of the nighttime soap opera, 90210.
