At long last: iPhone App: Romney Selects Paul Ryan 7:04 AM, Aug 11, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER iPhone App: Romney Selects Paul Ryan | The Weekly Standard Isn’t it odd that on the day Romney announced his VP the lineup for the Republican National Convention is announced?: First group of convention speakers announced By: Monique Hamm 8/11/2012 05:40 AM First group of convention speakers announced | Conservative News, Views & Books First let me say that the interminable campaign has been a snoozer from day one; so the Convention lineup is at least as exciting as Romney now that Ryan is #2. The speakers I was sure Ban Ki-moon would be included, but my source (my wife) tells me the Democrat Convention has first dibs on roll-on deodorant. Goofy Annan was mentioned as a substitute for Ban, but Republican gray beards squelched that idea real fast because of his recent failure in Syria. A wise decision. It’s never a good idea to associate failure with a political party’s nominating convention. Announcing the lineup and the VP on the same day seems like poor media management. The VP is good for at least four days of coverage. The Convention lineup on its own would be good for a day. Throwing away a day of coverage by overlapping the two is wasteful if not downright sinful. I don’t want to be too hard on Romney so I’ll close by admitting he showed some smarts in picking a running mate who won’t antagonize conservatives, or please the Democrats as would Rubio or Jindal. Those guys are good, but there is still that eligibility question.
