I particularly enjoyed a quote he picked up from MSNBC commentator Steve Schmidt who characterized the proceedings:
What we’re seeing tonight is the weaponization of grief.That's brilliant phrase-making, and relatively accurate as well. On the other hand I resented the incompleteness of a comment by Avik Roy, who worked for Marco Rubio:
Summary of #RNCinCLE Day 1: Brown people are making America less safe.And exactly what color did Roy think Mrs Mendoza's and Mr. Shaw's dead sons were, if not "brown"? Here Cassidy's bias shows.
