NOTE: This thread is in the CDZ so we can discuss the Republican Convention in the CDZ spirit. The Republican Convention was gaveled to order and immediately recessed yesterday followed by a wonderful prayer for the victims of Isaac and those still in harm's way. It is getting revved up full steam this afternoon with the roll call of states currently in process. This thread is for comments on the process, the dynamics, the theme, the tone, and the speeches of those scheduled to speak. Also for what those watching hope to see result from the convention.
