I went into the Grand Old Hall at the X-Cel Center…still pretty quiet…

Or maybe that's just what they want you to think… Perhaps the low turnout will end up working to the Republican's favor… Because while no one is paying attention, some stealth, focused workers are putting in overtime…

My News Nose told me there was more going on here than just a smattering of people mulling around a nearly empty Convention Center… There was Strategy at work… Sure enough, I did some snooping and discovered THIS hidden in the rafters of the Grand Old Hall…

Balloons! Of course! The one thing missing from the Democrats Convention was the presence of traditional Convention Balloons. How could they forget? Flags, bunting, cocktails—it was all there but some aide forgot to put balloons on the checklist. The Republicans seem to have exposed this weakness and, as I've discovered, plan to capitalize on it. I hate to be a "Spoiler" of the surprise tactic, but now you have an inside view into how the Great American Political Contest really works. So sit by your TVs and wait for the fireworks…I mean the Balloons!
