Well, that was exhausting. Check out the recap here.

Thanks for joining us tonight. We'll be right back at it on Monday when the Republican National Convention kicks off. See you then!

This was probably a flub, but Joe Biden did say, at the climax of his acceptance speech, "There's never been anything we've been able to accomplish when we've done it together."

Got that?

The line as it was probably written was cliche enough. The line as delivered makes it a very sad trombone note.

Jake Tapper calls Biden's speech "one of the best performances if not THE best performance I've ever seen." Ok, then.

So, that video wall next to the stage is supposed to show individual Americans clapping for Biden. Evidently the producers couldn't find enough unique cheering streams to fill it, hence the squares with the D20 logo.

Nice touch with the baby with the "BFD" onesie. Yikes.

Where are the balloons?

That might be the worst major speech I’ve ever heard, and I blogged Hillary for all of 2015-16.

  • Tyler O'Neil | Aug 20, 2020 11:14 PM est

Joe Biden did NOT end his speech with "God bless America."

  • Stephen Green | Aug 20, 2020 11:13 PM est

It's my takeaway that Biden is not Trump, and also love.

  • Victoria Taft | Aug 20, 2020 11:13 PM est

Tropes, tired cliche's mixed with desperation.

  • Stephen Green | Aug 20, 2020 11:13 PM est

“Are you ready?” YEAH, COACH, PUT ME IN! WE’RE DOWN BY 42 AND THERE’S TWO MINUTES LEFT!

  • Victoria Taft | Aug 20, 2020 11:11 PM est

I predict that if he wins, Joe will bring back Bush 41's "thousand points of light" program

Here comes the "fine people" hoax. This has been roundly debunked. 

  • Stephen Green | Aug 20, 2020 11:11 PM est

To my ears, this is a well-rehearsed speech -- far better rehearsed than it was written -- by a man with zero investment in the words he's saying, other than what and where they might get him.

  • Stephen Green | Aug 20, 2020 11:08 PM est

Somebody flipped the anger switch, and then flipped it off again.

  • Victoria Taft | Aug 20, 2020 11:08 PM est

Mr. Ukraine, Russia and Iran says he won't "cozy up" to dictators. Riiiight. 

  • Stephen Green | Aug 20, 2020 11:05 PM est
This is a high school Model UN idea of what an acceptance speech should be.
  • Victoria Taft | Aug 20, 2020 11:05 PM est

Shorter Joe Biden:  I demand mask mandates with a smile on my face and if you don't agree, well,  let's have a push up contest right here! 

  • Megan Fox | Aug 20, 2020 11:05 PM est

This is very long. I was supposed to watch a movie tonight still. That's looking less likely as the minutes drag on.
