I have been appalled by the conduct of some of the people attending this week's Republican National Convention in Tampa. 

The two people who threw peanuts at a black female camerawoman for CNN and said "this is how we feed the animals."  They were kicked out of the building.

The dozens of people, many in the Texas delegation, who stood and chanted "USA, USA" at a delegate from Puerto Rico trying to deliver a report from the podium in her Spanish accent.  The national Republican chairman had to interrupt, gavel the rude delegates into silence and beg them to allow the woman to give her report, with respect.

And Paul Ryan's speech last night.  Even Fox News today, after fact checking, said Ryan's talk was full of blatant lies.

What have we come to?

On the other side of the political coin, there's a marvelous (for Obama supporters like myself) video on the web.  Here it is.  Take a look, even if it's just to enjoy the music.
