« Convention Fashion UPDATE | Main | Geena Davis Is Seeing That Sarah Palin Will Travel This Year, and Also Meet New People »

Dear Republican National Convention:

Please do not dance.

I don't care if it is Chuck Berry.

Choreographed hat waving and towel twirling is also right out.  This will work out much better for everyone if you simply take your seats and applaud politely.  You may, on occasion, attempt a foot-tap or a slight (very slight) sway.  If this goes well, you may petition for an uncoordinated attempt at waving lighters.  However, this blanket prohibition will remain from now until the end of the convention, and, if need be, the end of time.

Do not--do not--dance.

I'm still trying to figure out Sarah Palin's hair. Sort of a slightly collapsed beehive? And is she trying to channel Tina Fey or is it just me?

Mrs McCain's hair may be due to all the beer she applies to it :-P

I should track down that beer recipie I wrote about last year! It just seems such a sad use of beer, even for the glory of hair.
