I Heart Barney Smith


My favorite part of the convention last night—besides the historic, inspiring speech etc etc—was when the regular (mostly former Republican) supporters took the stage. Jeff and I were already half (well, three-quarters) in the bag at that point, and took great pleasure in shouting at the screen, much to the chagrin of my mother.

When Barney Smith, who looked like a human Dilbert, took the stage and delivered his zinger ("We need a president who puts Barney Smith before Smith Barney!") Jeff and I became truly obnoxious.

"My name is Cooper Waterhouse Price!"
"My name is Stanley Morgan!"
"My name is Sachs Goldman!"
"My name is GroupCiti!"

Seriously, Barney Smith's mission on Earth may have been to deliver that line. I hope he gets famous and does endorsement deals.
