Live Blogging McCain's Speech

- McCain's intro video was actually very moving. That guy is a true American hero, and I don't say that with any irony. He's a tough mofo and will always have my respect. As soon as he leaves the military and gets into politics is when I lose interest.
- Why did I pick the only hotel in Philly without a mini-bar?
- People, stop yelling "USA!!!" It's annoying and doesn't seem genuine.
- This guy cannot work a crowd like Obama. He lets them interrupt him and isn't controlling the pace. He wasn't coached enough on how to deal with the crowd.
- Don't stop talking when there's a protester in the crowd. Keep the focus on you.
- McCain took the high-road and told Obama he has his respect. Again, very honorable. He's a likeable guy. Watch the first 20 seconds of this.
- McCain's mother is still alive. Wow!
- You're going to introduce Palin to Washington. Way to highlight that she has zero experience.
- What the hell does "pork barrel" spending mean?
- Didn't the Iraq war end? Wasn't it Mission Accomplished in 2003?
- Yeah, I'm stealing this format from Brian. WORD!
- I do not understand the Repblican ideology. I don't understand it at all. I have no idea how a whole part of the country can live with such a different set of values than me, because I know I am right. Maybe the values are the same (basically), but a different perspective. Ideology.
- I know tomorrow is going to suck.
- Audrina Patridge is my new girlfriend.
- Careful when you bad mouth Russia. That bully might be ready to own their side of the playground again. We need to converse with them, not make demands. Your open hostility and Cold War-thinking is not helping.
- I can't help it. I love hearing John McCain talk about his time in Vietnam.
- He said "My friends" - we're almost done!
- Finished! Woohoo! Good night!

"Pork barrel" = The term originated early in American history, when slaves were sometimes given a barrel of salt pork as a reward and had to compete among themselves to get their share of the handout.

Thank you, Wikipedia!
