Setting partisanship and political philosophy aside for a moment, Night One of the RNC was a more professional production than last week's DNC in its entirety.
The scheduling could have used a little work -- Kimberly Guilfoyle should have gone to Kim Klacik -- but that's a minor complaint.
Tonight looked like the work of professional people who gave a damn about their finished product, and worked hard to deliver it given the very real COVID-19 restraints.
Again, speaking strictly as someone who enjoys well-produced TV, last week looked like a bunch of YouTubers with low-budget webcams, bad lighting, and some Adobe After Effects trickery to fool people into thinking they had real audiences watching.

How are they not embarrassed to post racist stuff like this? I've seen this GIF everywhere used against Republicans. Imagine the outrage if a Republican did this to a black Democrat. Riots.
