Political convention wrap-up in Texas

Both political parties in Texas hosted their state conventions this weekend. I thought as a service to you, the crap-reading public, I would give a quick re-cap of each:

The Democrats:

Elected a new chairman.
Asked Kirk Watson a lot of questions.
Didn’t stay long after checking in.
Passed a platform delegates seem happy with.
Asked Kirk Watson a lot more questions.
Started blaming the new chairman for stuff before they even got out the door.
Complained about the Houston humidity.
Defended Houston’s humidity (Houston delegates only).
Seemed bored Friday night.
Seemed to have a pretty good time anyway.
Confounded reporters looking for actual news.

The Republicans:

Boo’ed Rick Perry.
Boo’ed David Dewhurst.
Boo’ed the people booing Rick Perry and David Dewhurst.
Shhhh’ed the people booing the people booing Rick Perry and David Dewhurst.
Boo’ed Ted Cruz, sort of.
Claimed that nobody boo’ed anybody.
Heard 1,284 speeches about how Obama sucks.
Forgot to boo undocumented aliens, but only for a moment.
Seemed bored Friday night.
Seemed to have a pretty good time anyway.
Confounded reporters looking for actual news, except the boo’ing part.

    I was at the Texas Democratic Party Convention in Houston as well…and I wasn’t bored and I didn’t think most of the people there were bored…Boyd made a good speech…and so did Ron Kirk…They framed the argument the Democratic Party needs to make in the General Election…But the loud speakers needed to be turnrd up…Harley Spoon

    There are four political parties on the ballot in Texas, and they ALL had their conventions this weekend.

    I was also at the Dem convention. The loudspeaker needed to be turned up?! Should have visited SD 28’s section Friday night. The nearby speaker blasted us out!

    As for Friday night, there really wasn’t much happening. Most of the important party business was on Saturday. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I wasn’t bored; I was tired and hungry from a long day of caucus participation!
