What's going on? Watching the DNC, at times the crowd broke out in chants of USA! USA! USA!
This sort of loud patriotism was normally the preserve of Republicans. What's going on?
Others noticed (not surprisingly, given the high ratings of both conventions).
I think that the DMC whooped RNC's ass. Again, others agreed:
- David Brooks:"The Democrats win the summer". On how better the DNC was than the RNC.
- Paul Krugman: "Who loves America?" On the flag-waving, chanting patriotism by the DNC.
- Timothy Egan: "The real plot against America". On the TrumPutin nexus. A shocking reality, which, alone, should disqualify Trump from the presidency.
