    What's next? A Mexican hat dance to liven up the crowd?

    Perhaps a small band of strolling Mariachi musicians dressed in native costumes opening Wednesdays convention events with the Star Spangled Banner? Or how about the hip-hop rap band NWA entertaining the crowd by doing some gangsta rap? Or maybe Pussy Riot can make a surprising appearance. Let's get serious GOP.

    So, the Dems hold Islamic prayers, and that is a grand gesture of openness. The GOP does something like that, and it's a hollow fake?

    Dumb ass.

    Nice that both Conventions are honoring the intent of our Constitution. We are a secular nation with citizens that espouse many differant religions. All to be respected.

    Contrary to the liberal sheeple mantra, conservatives are indeed inclusive and champions of freedom. You should be tolerant and actually try it sometime. You'll find it liberating.

    Exactly! You'd expect the demo's to do that but the GOP? NOPE. it's very uncharacteristic and very noticable of them when they attempt such antics. Sort of like when the GOP picked Sarah Palin to counter Obama.

    I'm sure you are equally offended when Obama and Biden change their speech patterns and adopt regional "accents" when they are giving speeches in front of southerners or blacks or hispanics or New Englanders or Texans. Right?

    Hmmm...

    I was just in a thread where quite a few Neocons were trying to make the point that attempting to partake in customs from another country is a sign of weakness.
