Nonetheless, the consequent transformation of the party convention into a ridiculously expensive and obtrusive advertising monster isn't exactly all that palatable. And with everyone sticking to the script, there is little purpose to closely following what's happening in Boston this week and in New York a month from now.
It's worth noting that Canada isn't immune to this phenomenon. Recall the Conservative "National Leadership Event" a few months back (they didn't even bother calling it a convention).Ah well, it all works for me, since I'm not really in a pundit mood these days anyways.
