This year's Democratic platform failed to mention God. In fact, excluding the Lord from important documents is a liberal conspiracy as old as the republic. It stretches back all the way to the U.S. Constitution. This has not escaped the attention of the man upstairs. Sure, God doesn't like brown nosers, but He likes a little attention.
In response to their heathen ways — or perhaps because like the GOP, the Democrats scheduled their convention in a Southern city at the end of Summer — Providence is calling forth a severe thunderstorm forecast, forcing the Democratic National Convention Committee to announce this morning that President Obama's speech accepting his renomination, originally planned for Bank of America Stadium on Thursday, September 6, would be moved to Time Warner Cable Arena, the site of the first two days of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
For the president, it means a shrinking live audience. At this rate, the speech will go from a 65,000-person Bank of America Stadium to a 20,000-person Time Warner Cable Arena to a Charlotte Waffle House.
But there's good news for fans of Eastwooding. 65,000 empty chairs makes for a lot of Invisible Obamas to yell at.
