Harkonnen Headlining

Watching Reince Priebus (take the vowels out of his name and you have RNC PR BS) opening the GOP convention to a small group of white people, all I could think was, "Talk about tepid." Reince (my favorite anagram of his name is "Crib Seep Urine") has all the charisma of damp cardboard, and I imagine most of the delegates decided to bag his intro so they could head to the strip clubs.

The keynote, though, should be a different story, as GOP hearthrob Chris Christie will be delivering the speech. I expect Christie to be throwing as much "red meat" to the base as he consumes in a typical week. The Hudson Harkonnen is bound to be a hit, he's a thuggish, sexist boor who has been extraordinarily hostile to teachers and is trying to paint the rising unemployment in his state as a "comeback". I'm looking forward to Christie's speech, and I imagine that he'll have an introduction like this:

Christie is a reasonable man.

Not everyone is predicting a great speech by Christie- yeah, he'll probably talk more about himself than Mitt. Personally, I hope he slips up and mentions that he'll be running in 2016. Yeah, I hope he really stabs Mitt in the back... never trust a Harkonnen. Don't disappoint me, Christie.

Reince Priebus, you say?

I don't personally get behind a lot of the schoolyard name calling and crap - them calling it the Democrat party, the whole Rmoney and Chimpy thing, Rethuglicans and Liebrals, it's all just stupid, and it's frankly much more interesting and enlightening to dissect and mock their actual stated policy agenda.

That said, I really, REALLY like Christie as Baron Harkonnen. That one works for me on a bunch of levels...

I am sorry, mikey, but Turdwaffle he remains.

He is speaking tonight. Great Orange Satan's liveblog barely mentioned that he appeared. Quite a livewire, our cheating Eagle Scout.

Also, the GOS liveblog maintains the Obvious Anagram was drunk for his harangue.
