3. Well, Moaning Myrtles here are always willing to set their hair on fire.

Anything to portray doom and gloom for November.

I am also not going to attend the DNC convention and I don't see anybody wringing their hands about that.

No, I am not running for office. But many candidates do not attend the convention. This is so much not news. It's just another excuse for people to either malign a Dem candidate or to moan.

4. They have nothing else

They want to make this election close. There are no scandals, so they have to make some shit up, for the pearl clutching grannies!

5. been to a lot of state party conventions

and a lot of electied dems never show up

does not surprise me at all

folks who go to conventions pay closer attention to what the pols do.

and some of the pols have lots of explaining to do.
