@ Evan; Yep you are right on the money with the "Obama/Biden" entertainment package! Kind of reminds me of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. A drunk and a brianless partner.

Well Adam, on night one of the RNC I had to watch a one man country act and a handful of middle aged women in mom jeans shaking booty. While I politically agree with all of those women, the visual was painful. Ultimately, the music won't matter, because Romney/Ryan will win.
