Michael Dukakis In The DNC Press Room

Former Massachusetts governor and 1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis just walked into the press room under the DNC arena. I would have sailed right past him without noticing if not for the reporters running over for sound bites. He looks pretty good for almost 79 years old.

Quote Of The Day – Richard Socarides

“Last night in Charlotte, the Democratic Party made history as the first national party to offer a platform endorsing marriage equality for all Americans. The move followed, of course, President Obama’s personal endorsement of same-sex marriage in May.

HomoQuotable – Andrew Tobias

“When Charlotte714, a non political group of Pastors and Christian leaders in Charlotte who are praying for God to restore our nation, requested permission to pass out gifts and Christian literature to arriving DNC delegates, they were refused.

Bill Donohue: Dems Are Stupid For Not Inviting Archbishop Dolan Too

“The Republicans are smart enough to get the ‘pope of America,’ and the Democrats are stupid enough not to invite him. The Catholic vote is the most critical vote. They’re the wild card.
