The Tattlesnake – Small Wagers of Sin Edition

I’d bet that …

… At least once during the GOP convention, and likely more often than that, the theme from Rocky will be played to bring a speaker on stage, probably Scooter Libby or Alberto Gonzales.

… Also during the Republican convention, some Big Media dunce – I’m looking at you, Charlie Gibson – will ask Joe Lieberman for a ‘Democrat’s perspective on the GOP convention.’

… Even if Obama delivers the equivalent of the Gettysburg Address on Thursday at Invesco Field, the Punditocracy will determine it wasn’t enough to unify the Democratic Party.

… No one in the Official Washington Press Gaggle will raise an eyebrow over McCain sending his wife Cindy to Georgia to inspect the human suffering there. (Of course, if Obama tried this, there would be a locust-like screeching that it smacks of outrageous presumption.)

… By the end of the week, Michelle Obama’s speech Monday at the Dem convention will be adjudged by the Solons of Pundit Planet as a failure, since it fell short of convincing every Democratic and Independent woman in the Known Universe to vote for Obama.

… Keith Olbermann will finally throttle the life out of MSNBC convention co-host Chris Matthews for the good of his audience and the country, right in the middle of the Hardball host’s braying spittle-flecked recollection of his imaginary tough- teen years on the mean streets of Philadelphia. A jury of his peers will not only acquit KO, but also award him a medal for service in the public interest beyond the call of duty.

… Not one of the Punditos or BM anchors will admit to their audiences that they are stinking rich and relish the GOP tax cuts for the top ten percent.

… During his acceptance speech at the GOP-O-Rama in Minnesota, John McCain go blank at least once and then drift into incoherent babbling for twenty seconds. McCain henchman Tucker Bounds will later excuse the flub by reminding us that McCain spent five years as a POW, just in case anyone forgot.

… No one in the Punditrocracy will mention the number of people I meet, even Republicans, who think there is ‘something really creepy’ about John McCain.


  1. And don’t forget the obligatory speech which says, ” What a great job Dick Cheney and George Bush have done for us!”

  2. Oh, yeah, and Cheney himself will be the one to say it at the GOP fest.
