The blog's been dead as I've been gearing up for the school year to start - but this week has been too crazy to completely miss.
The Republican National Convention has come and gone. Mitt Romney is officially the nominee. And some things can never be unseen.
The whole thing was ripe with missed opportunities. The Republican National Convention purportedly sets the candidate for the Party. Romney's had that in the bag for months now, so the convention instead should be a giant opportunity to sell the Romney-brand.
Now that it's over, polls show little to no benefit from the entire week-long affair.
Paul Ryan managed to pull off a pretty impressive feat. His speech on Thursday night brought consensus between both Fox News and The New York Times. Unfortunately for him, both agree he's an incredibly attractive liar.
Ryan's speech was embarrassing, but it paled in comparison to Clint Eastwood's incoherent ramblings.
The 82-year-old actor went off the rails and held an imaginary conversation with an empty chair. It was painful to watch.
And The Daily Show killed it all week. My personal favorite's below, but seriously go and watch the whole thing.
The Democratic National Convention starts today. We'll see if they can do any better.
