Last night, John Kerry delivered an address best summed up as "you know you're a flip-flopper when John Kerry calls you a flip-flopper."
Zingers included "It isn't fair to say Mitt Romney doesn't have a position on Afghanistan; he has every position," and "Talk about being for it before you were against it." No one would have been surprised had Kerry accused Romney of being a French windsurfer. And then there was this line, winning the prize for best Rocky reference at any political convention…
Folks, Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska. Mitt Romney talks like he's only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.
To which Sarah Palin responded on the Neil Cavuto show, communicating surprise that not everyone knew her level of obliviousness about the world around them…
I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name. How does he even know my name?

After winning Wisconsin, Maryland and D.C., the internet's peanut gallery weighs in on the Mitt Romney elephants.
Romney said to be considering Paul Ryan for VP. Their campaign poster: a manila envelope taped to drywall. In a snowstorm.

And in other news, Joe Biden continues to be Joe Biden, with no apparent end in sight…
The latest hit from Vice President Joe Biden against the Republican 2012 field came at a $10,000-per-couple fundraiser for President Barack Obama's reelection effort tonight at the Georgetown home of Sen. John Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, according to the pool report…
"[Republicans] don't have a sense of the average folks out there," he said. "They don't know what it means to be middle class."
Hahahahaha! It's so true! Those Republican snobs don't get the middle class? How could they? They're not even equipped to comprehend it.
It's like this: Imagine that the middle class is a glass of Leflaive white Burgundy, and the Republicans are sipping on it while eating a portion of côtes de veau fromagère! I know, right? And in August, no less!
You know what I'm talking about! And I definitely know what I'm talking about! So, enough said.
