Wiwille watches the DNC, is a dork, needs to drink more

Last night I was watching the Democratic National Convention on MSNBC. While this is not interesting in and of itself the conversations that took place during my viewing were at times humorous, surreal, and insulting. My laptop was open and cell phone was on during my time watching the Democrats get geared up for today's roll call.

Listed below are snippets of some of the conversations that took place via IM, text messaging, and phone. Names have been removed to protect the offending parties:

Her: What are you doing?
Me: Watching the DNC.
Her: ......you're a dork....

Her: What are you doing?
Me: Watching the DNC.
Her: What?
Me: The Democratic National Convention.
Her: Gross.

Her: What are you doing?
Me: Watching the DNC. Yes I know I'm a dork.
Her: It's okay. I like dork.

Him: Warner's daughters are hot.

Me: Did you like her speech?
Him: I did. I really thought it was perfect. How about you?
Me: It fit the mood. She did well.

Him: I stand by my statement that if I could fight anyone on the planet....it would be Pat Buchanan.

Me: It's amazing that Hillary didn't produce a speech like this all through the primaries.
Him: I hate her...so much...so much...really I could punch her in the teeth.
Me: Are you drunk?
Him: .....maybe.

Me: I think she (the anchorwoman) is hot.
Him: Really?
Me: Yes. Female talking heads do it for me. I like smart women who are interested in politics.
Him: You're gay.

Him: Sisterhood of the traveling pants suits? WTF?
Me: Yeah. Only amongst the most excited fans would people find that funny. Better than the Gandhi joke she told a few years back. I mean hell that was border line racist.
Him: Gandhi joke?
Me: Funny how people forget about that.

Her: So why do you watch this?
Me: I'm interested to learn what direction the party will be going from now until November. I mean it's obvious what they're going to do, but still I enjoy this.
Her: ....seriously?
Me: Yes.
Her: You need to get laid.
Me: Yes, yes I most certainly do.

Good times.

Why would anybody vote for anything that uses a donkey for a logo? Even if it was some sort of election to pick the best donkey groomer, I wouldn't pick the one with a donkey logo.

Yeah, I'm not really big on politics so I would never ever watch one of those conventions. My moto is 'may the best man (or woman) win'.... then I just leave it to fate.
