EARLY INTRO? If I'm not mistaken, New York governor George Pataki wrapped up his paean to George W. Bush a few minutes early. He closed with an emotional "George ... W ... Bush!" Trouble was, it wasn't quite 10 p.m., and network coverage hadn't kicked in. So nothing happened. Then he walked off and, after an awkward pause of a few moments, the band started playing "Jump Jive."
Now it's 10, and former senator Fred Thompson is introducing the Bush video.
And by the way, did Pataki do enough fear-mongering for you? If you don't want your family to die, you've got to vote for Bush. That's the ticket.
