Convention Notes

Andrew Malcolm, writing at the Hot Air website, has the definitive statement on allegations of plagiarism in Melania Trump's speech:
As someone who has researched and written speeches for a potential first lady, I must note in fairness there are only so many ways for a woman to politely praise hubby in public. And they’ve all been used before, long predating 2008.
Malcolm also has a great quote from the speech of Army Ranger veteran Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR, no known relation):
We’d like a commander-in-chief who calls the enemy by its name. A commander-in-chief who draws red lines cautiously but enforces them ruthlessly. And it’d be nice to have a commander-in-chief who could be trusted to handle classified information.
Hillary doesn't qualify, according to the FBI Director.
