  1. Twitter and the internet is abuzz about how the Democrats initially did not have God and pro-Israel policy in its platform, but because of the outcry, voted to include it today after a contentious vote over the matter. There is a hashtag Trending right now, #God and Jerusalem

  2. Conservatives and FOX News are giddy over this story:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A Wednesday voice on the floor of the Democratic convention put the party in two awkward binds — pitting them against both official U.S. policy and many of their own delegates.

    The Democrats restored language affirming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and putting mentions of God back into their platforms in a quick voice vote that the Democratic chair declared had passed. Convention chair Antonio Villaraigosa held three voice votes — two of which failed, before Villaraigosa declared the third passed with a two-third majority.

    After passage, boos were heard in the convention hall — prompting RNC spokesman Tim Miller to tweet: "Widespread boos for Jerusalem and God in the convention hall."

    More substantively, the Democratic platform now puts the DNC in direct opposition to longstanding U.S. policy on Jerusalem.

  3. Do we know when Zack will speak?

  4. Oh nm, that's tomorrow, I thought it was today.

  5. I would have preferred no mention of god whatsoever but that day is a long time coming.

  6. The Party should have anticipated the furor and controversy over the God and Jerusalem language. This is a distraction we do not need as well as the taunting over the canceled Stadium address.

  7. Would have been nice if they showed some cajones and said something to the effect of "we think any devotion to a higher power is a given and we don't feel the need to distract from the real issues with an empty gesture"

    I guess that's why I'd never be elected to anything above the house :b

  8. Ughhhh

    utter foolishness

    Jerusalem as the capitol of Judaism = Yes just as the vatican is the capitol of Roman Catholicism

    Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel? = in no way could it ever be equipped without decades of time and huge expense to come even close to being modern enough, large enough, or safe enough (think upset muslim world) to be equal to Tel Aviv

    Tel Aviv is a superior capitol for the modern 21st century nation of Israel with Jerusalem as the spiritual capitol of Judaism

    just compare these 2

    http://wikitravel.org/en/Tel_Aviv

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem

    1 is a capitol city of a modern 21st century 1st world country while the other is more a backwaters 2nd world city

  9. Madd, don't ever go into politics. That would have been a disaster that would have cost Democrats just about every swing state in the nation.

  10. another great pic of Tel Aviv

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/TE-Collage_Tel_Aviv.png

    a very modern large 1st world city with Mediterranean sea port

    Jerusalem is a land locked hilly area that has no sky scrappers and could never compete infrastructure wise in the modern world to be anything more than a tourist destination and spiritual capitol

  11. Pathetic groveling by spineless Democrats who already lost whatever spine they might have had from last night.
    Oh and for a party that is proclaiming voters rights that was NO WAY IN GODS WAY 2/3 vote.
    What an embarrassment and craven pander worthy of a Romney.
