For my Political Humor course we were all assigned to watch the Republican National Convention and write a paper on it, so that is exactly how I spent my night. I wasn’t in my room so I had to watch a live stream of it on Yahoo. It was kind of awkward watching it since I’m a member of Butler’s College Democrats.
The big speakers of the night were New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Ann Romney. I surprisingly enjoyed both. Christie was very bombastic and brazen and that’s what I liked about it. Romney, on the other hand, was very mellow and soft spoken, which was also nice to contrast Christie. So it ended up not being a bad night. There are two more nights to go so hopefully they are as enjoyable as the first!
