The DNC Night Two Recap: Hillary's Redemption.

We Watch, So You Don't Have To.

Okay, I'll keep it 100 with ya'll. My fantasy football draft was last night, so I ain't really catch much other than Hillary's speech. And BTW, if you drafted Kevin Curtis too early, yes, you should have buyer's remorse right now. Darn outdated cheat sheets.

Anyways, Hillary more or less did what she was posed' to. She seemed somewhat genuine, she didn't mince words about McCain, and she more or less effectively told her followers to get with Barack or Go Sit Down!

"Get Down, Or Lay Down!" [1]

Skeptical Negro that I am, I still can't help but watch things like this with my 3rd eye, or as I like to call it, my Negro Spidey Sense. And something was telling me that while she seemed to be on board, there was a little bit of "see you in 2012" sentiment tossed in for good measure. And BTW, what the heck was that whole Harriet Tubbman thing about? Sheesh.

Anyways, she did what she had to, can't knock her for that.

On a separate, but related note, I'm really starting to enjoy TVOne's DNC After Party coverage. Last night was even better, as they wisely pared down the number of in-studio guests, and kept things moving with interviews and pretaped vignettes. Any "news" program that features Huggy Lowdown and Sheryl Underwood can't be taken too seriously, but I'll give them credit for starting somewhere. Their coverage is entertaining enough, and I like it. I still haven't peeped BET's offering, and probably won't.

I did, for some odd reason, happen to flip over to CNN during a commercial break, and I caught what was probably the most disturbing image of a Black woman aired on TV in this millennium, this side of "Tip Drill". No, seriously. If you peeped this sista, you know what I'm talking about.

Dang, this chick makes me long for Harriett Christian.

Fanie Lou Hamer is crying inside.

Question: Was Hillary Clinton genuine in her support of Obama? Do Clinton refugees have any legitimate reason to hold onto their grudges any longer? Have you peeped TVOne's coverage? What the ham sammich was wrong with that sista that CNN wisely planted put on the camera?

[1] Name that movie.
