An amazing fact in this year's GOP convention was that James Carville showed up at Philedelphia, walked into the convention, and was greeted with a friendly welcome. He's not exactly well-liked in conservative circles, and yet, the conservative folks at the convention managed the dignity to greet him with a smile. No, he wasn't lynched, quite the opposite in fact. Plus the fact that they actually let Colin Powell up there on the stage meant that the GOP is going for a more moderate road. I don't like his affirmative action ramble, but oh well. Better moderate than left.

On the other hand, imagine what would happen if Newt Gingrich walked into the Democratic Convention for a stroll. Here's an imagined sequence of events:

  • Rushed by a mob of angry liberals and severely beaten
  • Strung up on stage and pelted with large rocks
  • Impaled on the spot, and after he's dead, the liberals come on stage to feast on his quivering flesh
A bit exaggerated, but you can be sure that he definitely won't be treated as nicely as Carville was treated in Philedelphia. All the more proof that the GOP is far more inclusive than the media or the donkeys like to say. Plus the fact that yes, believe it or not, there are decent people in the GOP, was largely ignored by CNN and the rest of the liberal media, who was happy repeating "rich white male" every 5 seconds.
