Day 2: What's Going on at the Republican Convention

Day 2: What's Going on at the Republican Convention

While we're awaiting a conference call at 10:30 a.m. ET to confirm how many of the day's convention activities will be on today, in the meantime there are still a bunch of things worth checking out today:

Update: Ron Paul will address the Rally for the Republic at 1:30 p.m. ET, and you can watch it live, plus President Bush is expected to address the convention tonight via satellite from the White House.

  • 12:00 p.m: The Big Tent Event hosted by the Log Cabin Republicans.
  • 1:00 p.m: Politics and the Media: Bridging the Political Divide in the 2008 Election, sponsored by USC Annenberg's Center on Communication and Leadership/Politico
  • 2:00 p.m: The ONE campaign's community service project, assembling caregiver packs for those working abroad.
  • 3:00 p.m: The session will probably start around this time, but we're awaiting the call to see who will be speaking today, though the Times is reporting that Fred Thompson and Joe Lieberman will be giving speeches tonight.
  • Later on I'm heading out to see Lizz Winstead's (creator of the Daily Show) comedy show and convention commentary.

McCain's campaign manager Rick Davis has just confirmed that the RNC will resume today with a full schedule including Lieberman and Thompson speaking tonight.

Reading transcripts gives me cross eyes and I am told that it isn't the best look for me.
Yeah, me too, R. B.

"You have gotten to go to both conventions and saw and will see so much more than is covered." Should read: You have gotten to go to both conventions and saw and will see so much more than is or will be covered. wow that is a lot of tenses.

I'm jealous citizen. You have gotten to go to both conventions and saw and will see so much more than is covered. I would love to hear what they all say. Reading transcripts gives me cross eyes and I am told that it isn't the best look for me.

Maybe this guy's actually an Aaron Burr impersonator, but couldn't find the proper costume.

Sort of sad too. I mean he's our greatest president and he's reduced to that. Now Chester Arthur, I could see him lifting wallets.
