Um, hello? He was the frakkin’ LEAD CANDIDATE?? Since when is it a surprise when the candidates show up to their parties’ national conventions??
I mean, imagine walking into a restaurant and getting told, “We have a surprise for you today — our chef decided to show up & cook!”
And why is the news media acting so surprised that he was nominated? Hello? Lead candidate? Hillary bowed out? Who the hell else were the Dems gonna go with? “Oh, hey, Barack, we decided to go with Samuel L. Jackson instead — he’s a JEDI and he saved that plane!”
Politics. Screw it all.
