yay New Jersey in the roll call.

Ben Affleck showed up to talk to the New Jersey delegation.
He says his grandfather from Englewood, NJ died with a Kerry sticker on. wow.

hee. protestors are weird.
Billionaires for Bush are hilarious.

The Baby almost made me sleep, but didn't succeed. I was falling asleep due to Baby while reading The Wide Window, but didn't! yay!

a selection I liked from Al Sharpton's speech:
"We did it with a go-it-alone foreign policy based on flawed intelligence. We were told that we were going to Iraq because there were weapons of mass destruction. We've lost hundreds of soldiers. We've spent $200 billion dollars at a time when we had record state deficits. And when it became clear that there were no weapons, they changed the premise for the war and said: No, we went because of other reasons.
If I told you tonight, "Let's leave the FleetCenter, we're in danger," and when you get outside, you ask me, Reverend Al, "What is the danger?" and I say, "It don't matter. We just needed some fresh air," I have misled you and we were misled."

Dennis Kucinich (yay!) is on BBC World News talking about how awesome Kerry is. Really awesome. These comments are better than his speech. I liked the end of his speech, but it wasn't the best.

Moore's got a hit in Bush's backyard
CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- Brian Munoz already saw the documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 in a theatre, but he and some friends couldn't resist a chance to watch it again outdoors on a muggy summer night — especially only a few kilometres from President George W. Bush.
They were among more than 3,000 people -- three times more than originally expected -- who sat on lawn chairs, pillows or blankets Wednesday night, soaking in director Michael Moore's film that lambastes Bush's decision to go to war with Iraq and his handling of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Michael Moore: I Will Bring Cameras to Florida to Monitor November Election

Filmmaker Michael Moore announces he is bringing his cameras to Florida in November to make sure there is what he called a "huge spotlight" on state election officials when voters go to the polls. We hear his press conference in Boston. [includes rush transcript]

At a press conference in Boston yesterday, filmmaker Michael Moore announced he is bringing his cameras to Florida in November to make sure there is what he called a "huge spotlight" on state election officials when voters go to the polls. The director of "Fahrenheit 9/11" also said he plans to help pay for an "army of lawyers" who will be in target precincts ready to go to court if they spot any voting problems. He encouraged other independent filmmakers to join him in Florida. Here is Michael Moore speaking yesterday at a press conference organized by Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida.

Michael Moore: I Will Bring Cameras to Florida to Monitor November Election


MICHAEL MOORE: We are here this morning to put the Bush administration, both the one in Washington D.C. and the one in Tallahassee on notice. (applause) Too many people fought for too many years to guarantee that every American citizen would have the right to vote and that their votes would be counted. Too many people died for that right. And we are not going to dishonor those who gave their lives in the Civil Rights struggles by allowing these people to steal a second election. That is not going to happen! That's just not going to happen. (applause). And I wanted to stop by this breakfast this morning and tell you personally that I am committed. I am coming to Florida. I will be in Florida. And together, together, we will guarantee to every Floridian, that their vote will be counted this year. Make no mistake about it. I will be there, I will have my cameras there. We will put a huge spotlight on them. They will not get away with it this time.
