Now with even more protesters! My God, I love the Code Pink/Iraq Veterans Against the War people. Anyone notice that the guy in balcony was the hot former service member who protested at the Alberto Gonzales congressional hearings with his "I don't recall" scoreboard?

I protested the 1992 Republican National Convention. It was an experience I'll never forget. I got close enough to Barbara Bush to get her autograph on a t-shirt I'd bought outside. I had it folded up so she couldn't see what it said: "Lick Bush in 92."

Cindy McCain's speech and the "Mac the Maverick" video tribute after the jump.

Cindy McCain got on stage again last night with her brood of children. Anyone else think seeing her kiss the oldest son was kind of odd? He looks older than she does!

Then there was the super sappy tribute to McCain's life and early career when they didn't like him:

All in all, I'd have to call it a snooze-fest. Barack Obama's speech was a bazillion times better and even Palin's speech completely blew his out of the water.

And, seriously, when was the last time you saw a presidential acceptance speech interrupted multiple times by protesters?

My god, I can't watch that whole thing. He's an awful speaker and his speech was lame.
