These were some of my favorite moments of the first night of the Democratic Convention (which I tuned into after a Project Runway marathon, am I fired from this blog yet?):
Rachel Maddow does what she does best--be a total badass and smack the heck out of Pat Buchanan:
Michelle Obama completely brings down the house:
Sasha Obama is adorable, and Malia Obama is way too poised for being half my age:
All in all, I was unbelievably impressed by Michelle Obama's speech. We were watching it on MSNBC, and Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman gushed for a solid five minutes; they just couldn't help themselves. Commentary around the blogosphere says many people are thinking the same way.
