Politics

Hotline Sort: Travel Channel

August 31, 2012
3) The convention's first night was about on par with the first night of the 2008 convention, but Paul Ryan is clearly no Sarah Palin. About 37 million Americans watched Palin's acceptance speech, while just 20 million Americans watched Ryan take the veep nod. We chalk that up to disaffection with politics, and we'll still wait to see how many people watched Romney's speech before declaring the modern political convention dead, but losing half your audience usually gets a show cancelled. 2) The Secretary of State usually stays far away from domestic politics. But how far away? Hillary Clinton will be in the Cook Islands when Democrats meet in Charlotte next week. It's very hard for one human being to be farther away from another. If you flew from one to the other, you'd be traveling for 40 hours and make two pit stops, according to Orbitz. But it's not that bad -- fly one way tomorrow and you'll only pay $864.79, according to an early-morning search. 1) Advice to students: Don't cheat in school, especially when you're taking classes on government. At least half of a Harvard class on Congress is under investigation for alleged academic fraud, the Crimson reports. If they're suspicious about which Republican congressman was seen leaving the convention at ten to midnight on Wednesday night, we apologize for outing Rep. Ralph Hall. We'll catch you in Charlotte. Happy Friday.
