Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

The RNC - Day 2

Well, that first night of the Republican National Convention was certainly a lot more fun than France 2016 was, eh? Where else are you going to see Charles in Charge, the beardy fellow from "Duck Dynasty" and a Slovenian supermodel plagiarizing the First Lady? What's next - Ted Nugent taking a dump onstage?

I'll be looking for more of the same good times tonight, as the Repubs run out the "Make America Work Again." On the prime-time schedule tonight will be:

* The president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship
* LPGA star Natalie Gulbis
* Daytime soap actress Kimberlin Brown
and Ben Carson.

Join me for all the shenanigans from about 8pm onward.

Good afternoon, mate. I'm surprised they don't have any NASCAR people at this shindig. I should be around for the shenanigans.

Some golf bimbo chimed in with some opening remarks then Donny basically stated that he has the military in his back pocket. He pomises to bring back the jobs he outsourced to China.

Evening, MUR. I'm getting a late start on proceedings. I was out in the backyard with Kate doing some weeding. Came inside just in time to catch The Donald addressing the crowd via video feed from Trump Tower.

Now we've got Mitch McConnell introducing the Trump children who are some of the marquee speakers tonight.

Mitch is getting revved up now: "He mounts an attack on Clinton.

“At a moment when so many feel betrayed by their government, why in the world would Democrats put forward such a candidate?” he says.

Sorry. I meant to say Bob.Now it's Paul Ryan with the predictable convention remarks. He followed some freshman senator from Alaska, who talked about firing Harry Reid. The predictable Clinton bashing.

Paul Ryan is a horrible punster.

Chris Christie with the Hillary bashing. I sure didn't see that coming.

I missed Ryan's address for our dinner - I take it that Paul wasn't up to your high standards.

Chris Christie just wrapped up. He appears to have taken the phrase "prosecution of Clinton" quite literally, asking the partisan crowd to find her guilty of a number of charges.

Little Donny Jr. is up next.

The pundits on MSNBC are having a good chuckle over Dr. Ben's remarks.

Even one of tbe.conservative commentators on CNN was critical of him.

Apparently his argument was that Hillary Clinton is a follower of a Satan worshiper. Wow!

Now it's Kimberlin Brown from the soap opera "The Young and the Restless." Oy vey.

The vast majority of delegates otherwise are peacing out. The Trump family is long gone from their box. The night is finishing on time, but most of the crowd has already gone.

I guess soap opera stars are used to talking to furniture.

Muslims for Trump. That's really Oy vey.

Steve Schmidt is breaking down the poor organization and timing of these events. This is the second night in a row when the RNC have cocked it up by putting on the most effective, professional speakers before the networks joined in and putting on the B-team during prime time. I don't get it. Aren't there any professionals working of the Trump campaign?

There seems to be some dancing going on now - not a pretty sight.

The second appears to have wrapped up early. How odd. Well, I'm calling it a night as well.

Cheerio, MUR!
