Update: Clintons Rule! Tonight it’s Clinton Eastwood, “Clint” to the informal. He’ll receive a tumultuous reception as a former Mayor (yeah, right) and somewhat well known actor/director/producer. “Go ahead, make my day.”
But the big event on this big night? Yes – the RNC grand finale: Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney
We look forward to Jane Edmonds (see below) and whether MSNBC has another “black out” night of ignoring the news and in a Baghdad Bob way, or is it Stalinist, their few viewers will suffer a “white out” of any and all minority speakers.
The question Barack Obama runs away from is “Who Is Barack Obama?” To this day that question is still unanswered. This this day Barack Obama remains unvetted. Big Media does not ask “Who Is Barack Obama?” Big Media protects Barack Obama from scrutiny. Readers of Big Pink know the answer to the question.

Tonight Mitt Romney has to answer only one question: Who is Mitt Romney?
We have heard the answer to that question from Paul Ryan. We have heard the answer to that question from Ann Romney, the wife of Mitt. It was refreshing to see Ann Romney – wearing age appropriate clothes that are stylish, pretty, refined and with sleeves – instead of an expensive garish costume from consignment shops with clothes from Cleopatra Jones or maybe Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls.
Tonight Mitt Romney himself will answer the question “Who Is Mitt Romney?” May we be so dramatic and say that on the effectiveness of that response lies the fate of this nation?
Mitt Romney will have some assistance answering the question “Who Is Mitt Romney?”:
“TAMPA, Fla. — Jane Edmonds is a self-described liberal Democrat, an African-American civil rights activist from Massachusetts who is very likely far from Mitt Romney on most social issues.
But that’s not what she’s here to talk about.
Edmonds was a Cabinet secretary under Romney when he was governor, and Thursday night she will speak on his behalf at the convention.
“I didn’t come here to talk about our differences — I’m not going down that path,” Edmonds said in an interview. “I’m here to talk about my experiences working for him. My friends have asked me why. I adore the guy. I have seen him behind closed doors in Cabinet meetings. I have seen his compassion. I’m at a point in my life that the character of the human being we entrust to be president is important to me. He would make an excellent president.”
Edmonds will make heads explode among the unhinged Hopium Guzzlers. She’s black so MSNBC will probably be too busy decrying racism to listen to what a black woman has to say. MSNBC and the rest of Big Media are on the hunt for dog whistles during the Republican convention. The newest racist dog whistle: “Chicago” Lordy, what will they say about our old portrait of Obama above? We fret.
Edmonds will probably be “blacked out” of MSNBC.
Maybe some of the white people supporting Mitt Romney will make it to the MSNBC cameras:
“Ann Romney started the process Tuesday by talking about her husband’s private generosity and commitment to family. On Thursday, the convention will hear from their sons, members of their church — such as friend and church leader Grant Bennett — Olympic athletes from the games Mitt Romney headed and a few surprises, like Edmonds.
“We’re his character witnesses,” says oldest son Tagg Romney.”
“Character witnesses”???????????? Gee who does this Mitt Romney guy think he is anyway? “Character witnesses”????? Or as MSNBC would say ‘this is a dog whistle code message of racism’. That’s because if Barack Obama called up “character witnesses” the penitentiaries of Illinois would see an exodus that would fill the Sinai – and of course empty penitentiaries are code messages or something.
Picture Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich at the Obama Bank of America convention. Tony Rezko: “I liked Barack Obama so much I bribed him with a house.” Blago: “I hated Barack Obama a lot because I had to split the bribes with him.”
Michelle Obama as character witness for Barack Obama is Al Capone testifying on behalf of Frank Nitti. Michelle Obama is so corrupt, along with Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama looks comparatively “clean” as Drunken Joe Biden once phrased it.
But we digress.
Who is Mitt Romney? Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney and possibly help answer that question. Marco Rubio is one of dem dar “white hispanic types” we har tell ’bout so maybe MSNBC will screen him through. Maybe?
Jane Edmonds will give her answer to us tonight:
“That is the Mitt Romney Jane Edmonds said she worked with 15 years ago as his secretary of Department of Workforce Development. She remembers him asking Cabinet members to divvy up the 40 campaign promises he made, saying: “We have to deliver.” She remembers him quietly reaching out to a co-worker who had learned she had a brain tumor and offering support. She recalls him genuinely wanting to hear different points of view. “That’s what leadership is about,” she says.
Edmonds says her support of Romney has nothing to do with her feelings about Barack Obama. She thinks the president is doing a fine job. She just knows Romney. She says she wrote her speech herself and the campaign suggested no changes. “I will talk about my personal experiences with him — that’s all I can do,” she says. “I like the guy.”
Deliver on campaign promises????? Who the hell does this Romney guy think he is????? Is that racial code word dog whistling???? No doubt MSNBC will say so.
Or maybe it is about leadership? Maybe what Mitt Romney is saying is that he knows not only who he is but what he wants to do? That might be the most surprising answer of all.
