CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — No balloons? What kind of a political convention is that?

With a threat of rain, there will be no downpour of Democratic balloons.

Thursday’s national convention finale was supposed to be at Charlotte’s huge outdoor Bank of America Stadium. Seventy thousand or more supporters cheering President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech. Fireworks soaring into the skies to match the fiery rhetoric. That’s the way it was four years ago as Obama stood before 84,000 exuberant followers in Denver’s Invesco Field at Mile High stadium, an overflow crowd shouting approval.

But this year the rains came — every day this week in the convention city, with more possible on Thursday’s final day. Thunderstorms, too, the final blow.



How about a single giant balloon with the face of Helen Thomas on it???? :biggrin-new:

Oh. Dear. God.

Speaking of balloons, aren't they harmful to the environment? Shouldn't the Dems being throwing something biodegradable, like, uh....carrots?

But Rock, there's a helium shortage (http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/health/med-tech/why-is-there-a-helium-shortage-10031229). :apologetic:

Plenty of helium on the sun. Let's send some libs to harvest some.

If you can get them out of their parents' basements and away from the bong.

Interesting story, it would appear that a government that once stocked up on helium is know only full of hot air.http://smileys.emoticonsonly.com/emoticons/t/thinking-1376.gif

Interesting campaign button for a party who thinks we should have a color blind society.

How about just tossing them down when Sandra Fluck speaks? Maybe she can collect some and add them to her stash.

Why don't they just drop Helen Thomas?OSHA would never allow that. Someone might put their back out.

Besides, there are union work rules to consider....

I kinda figured this convention would be a clusterfuck, I just didn't know by how much.

I kinda figured this convention would be a clusterfuck, I just didn't know by how much.It's really amazing, isn't it? I'm just astonished at the unending car crash that's going on here. The Incredible Shrinking Venue, intentionally taking God and Jerusalem out of the platform and then creating a ludicrous spectacle reversing themselves to put it back in again, locking out reporters while simultaneously calling it "the most open convention ever," Michelle Obama telling an absolute pack of lies that any dolt with access to Wikipedia can debunk, Sandra Slut making an abject fool of herself last night, Bill Clinton contradicting himself all night long and networks eventually cutting off the convention entirely....

Wow. It's like some sort of metaphor for the entire Obama administration.

Um... Did anyone else originally misread that last word as "snatch?" Or am I just a bad boy?

Organic fertilizer is biodegradable, and they've got a bunch of that composting in their recycling bins. They can drop that on the crowd, and if enough occupy members are there, nobody will notice the odor.

Is she biodegradable?

More than that, it's an example of what happens when the inmates run the asylum. This is the left running things the way that they want to, and being shocked that the rest of the country isn't on board.
