Last night, Kerry's speech pulled in a combined 12.9 rating. That's from all 3 of the Big Media networks. That's down from Gore's 13.8 rating in 2000. A rerun of CSI an hour earlier pulling in an 11.3 on it's own. It's gets a little better. Viewership of Kerry's speech actually went down during the speech itself. He can't hold an audience. He's too boring. Unlike Bush. Did anyone watch his speech this morning? He was on fire. He speaks with real passion. Kerry speaks with passion when the polls tell him to. If Bush says half the things he said in his speech this morning during the debates, he'll leave Kerry slack jawed and confused.

Thanks to the convention, the Kerry/Edwards ticket has gotten the bounce everyone talked about. Only it's not a big a people thought it would be. 5%. Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't the naming of a VP and your parties convention give you at least a 10-15% bounce? Kerry had actually been going down in the polls until the convention. Could this mean something about what people think about Kerry/Edwards? Could be.

We all know how Kerry turned his swift boat around in 'Nam to save one of his crewmates. But did you all know that's not the only life Kerry's has saved? It's true. It seems that one day the Kerry clan was waiting at a dock when one of his daughters hampster cage fell into the water. With no regard of his own safety, Kerry grabbed an oar and fished the cage out. I'll let Alexandra Kerry describe it for you.
"My dad jumped in, grabbed an oar, fished the cage from the water, hunched over the soggy hamster and began to administer CPR. There are still to this day some reports of mouth-to-mouth, but I admit it's probably a trick of memory"
And starting next week, Licorice the hampster will on the road with Kerry/Edwards to talk about the Senators heroic actions. Just a note. I couldn't stop laughing while I was typing that last line. This is a funny story.
