Oh, please, God - let this be true:
Elizabeth Warren as keynoter at the convention in Charlotte?
A strong possibility, says the Boston Globe.
Citing an Obama campaign official, the newspaper recently reported that the Massachusetts Senate candidate – and liberal darling – is under consideration for the high-profile speaking assignment.
Giving Warren a national audience from Time Warner Cable Arena could possibly help her campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Republican who succeeded the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.
Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, got praise (from liberals) and criticism (from conservatives) for her tough comments about Wall Street during her time heading a congressional panel created to oversee the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).
Because after four years of being spoken down to by Barack Obama, there is nothing that will enthuse the American people more than being spoken down to by a finger-pointing, shrieking harpy. Nothing will re-invigorate the feeling of "hope" more than hearing the shrill voice of the woman who originated the "You didn't build that!" meme. And nothing will bring the American people back to the Democratic fold more than a pinch-faced academic aristocrat who will declare that the problem with America over the past four years is that we haven't fought class warfare hard enough, and that we haven't taxed job creators anywhere near the government's capacity to absorb it.
The fact that the Democrats can even be considering Warren for this primo speaking slot - after Obama's adaptation of her themes caused a national uproar - shows how utterly out of touch they are with the nation's values.
The moment she steps to the podium, the entirety of America will realize this as well.
Bring it, Democrats. Please...
