Preaching to the Choir and Football Fans

Now that's my kind of sermon! I hope Senator Cruz was taking notes. Pastor Mark Burris had the Convention on its feet like a gospel choir shouting "Trump! Trump! Trump!" This after Burris, an African American, preached that "all lives matter," which also brought everyone out of their seats.

Fran Tarkington followed with a joke that backstage he had tell Pastor Burris to "loosen up." The former Minnesota quarterback followed up on the theme that Pastor Burris had emphasized: that jobs are the only way the poor are going to improve their lot. And jobs can only be produced by a business leader like Trump: "He gets stuff done!"
