Having done her best to weasel her way into the GOP Convetnion at the Xcel Energy Center, DIH is forced to admit defeat.
But she did manage to attend a couple of events. So, I guess I'll talk about them.
The first thing was a screening of a documentary about the Supreme Court. You know the kind of thing: lots of footage of crazy anti-abortion activists chanting weirdly outside the Supreme Court building in Washington; over-the-hill Nashville stars in cowboy hats singing about Je-zus; civilized pro-abortion leaders in handmade shirts speaking calmly to the camera.
Which brings us to today's Vocabulary Lesson For Filmmakers:
Please get out your dictionaries and look up the following: cliche, "jump the shark," and "I-thought-film-schools-were-better-than-this."
The film ended with a roll of supertitles. "Since their confirmation John Roberts and Sam Alito have re-instituted slavery and bugged your telephones. THEY CAN HEAR YOU."
The filmmaker was a Democrat, who was positively beaming at how unbiased he managed to be. Touching, in a way.
The reception that was part of this event was full of surprises. For example, I thought ten years ago that Ralph Reed looked like one of those little girl tennis stars. Update: he still does. I really thought he'd look, I don't know, a little more rugged by now.
Anyway, more later. Right now DIH has to check her phones.
