Great show. Can't wait to see it live tomorrow in my home town (unfortunately, without the Foo Fighters). Watched most of the night's proceedings at a Democratic watch party so I didn't catch every speech or every comment. The hour is late so I'll just compile the best of my tweets and retweets. I started the evening at home with John Lewis and his eloquent defense of voting rights.
@suedvorsky @ZachWahls is the son of all of us in #Iowa. Could you be any more proud??? #NO! #DNC2012
@johndeeth Win: Foo Fighters sign with Obama logos in FOO
@johndeeth Member of Nirvana plays DNC. We've come a long way since Tipper Gore
@nathanlgonzales Acoustic? I thought democrats could handle electric guitars. #DNC2012 #foofighters
@johndeeth @nathanlgonzales Should played "Monkey Wrench" cranked to 11
(At this point I left for the party and arrived having just missed Gabby Giffords do the Pledge of Allegiance.)
@HuffPostHill Giffords just won the Gabby v. Gabby Pledge of Allegiance Showdown. Sorry, Gabby Douglas.
@grantyoung72 Hahahahahaha. FoxNews goes to commercial during the Crist speech.
(John Kerry speaks) @johndeeth Hey I remember this guy from like 8 yrs ago
@johndeeth In alternate universe this is Kerry's lame duck convention
@johndeeth In another alternate universe this is Howard Dean's lame duck convention #YEEEEEEAH
@greghauenstein @johndeeth Or Edwards... *shudder*
@johndeeth @greghauenstein who?
@johndeeth Audition speech for secretary of state
@TheFix If John Kerry is picked as next Sec of State, there would be an amazingly competitive special election to replace him. #dnc2012
@johndeeth Crowd at Gus' has been chatty but getting attentive for Kerry
@dailykos Even our boring guys are more interesting than Mitt Romney.
@aburnspolitico Funny how some people become better politicians after they're not candidates anymore
@TheOnion Rising Star John Kerry's Stirring Speech Paves Way For 2016 Presidential Run http://onion.com/OqXoUM
@jeffzeleny Kerry comes equipped with a quiver of very sharp lines. It's clear he has Romney in his head: He's playing Romney in debate prep with Obama.
@ravenb John Kerry just retroactively won the 2004 election. #dnc2012
@johndeeth Almost time for @JoeBiden I never got the bashing. Any caucus vet will tell you the man is brilliant
@JoeBiden 's only flaw is an excess of heart, and that's a good flaw to have
@AdamBSullivan BREAKING: Barack Obama endorses Joe Biden for vice president. #dnc2012
@BuzzFeedAndrew "Joe Biden is already off his prepared remarks." #dnc2012
@johndeeth Settle in, @JoeBiden is talking. We'll be here a while
@johndeeth Three words not heard this convention: Nobel Peace Prize
@johndeeth "A job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about dignity. It’s about respect."
@LarrySabato Uh-oh--Bill's speech has given Biden the green light to veer off the script and ad-lib.
@johndeeth Skip the videos, I want a Foo Fighters encore
@johndeeth And "City of Blinding Lights" returns
@johndeeth @JoeBiden you do have to go to school tomorrow
@TheFix The Obama comments about smallness of politics and huge # of campaign ads aimed squarely at independents. #dnc2012
@johndeeth President sticking muuuch closer to script than Biden, Clinton
@TheFix Just once, I want a politician to cite a company in a non-swing state. I have a feeling I will be waiting forever. #dnc2012
@BuzzFeedBen Climate talk — almost totally absent for a couple of years — one of the biggest applause lines here.
@RogerJStoneJr FOUR MORE YEARS ! I feel like I am In Miami Beach in 1972 #Nixon'stheone!
@chucktodd Has every Romney reference in this speech been part of a punch line ?
@maggiepolitico Lotta people not clapping when Obama mentions Israel
@johndeeth Bill Clinton arithmetic reference not in script
@johndeeth Text said "Google" not "Steve Jobs" more proof POTUS is a Mac fanboy
@johndeeth "little girl in Phoenix" AZ still in play?
@mattyglesias This is the speech you give when you think you're winning and just want to avoid screwing up.
@johndeeth Officiallly rolling into local news time
(but just barely it turned out)
