    Of course they did - they have shown recently that they have no original thought or ideas, so they steal others. I would expect nothing less.

    Anyone notice how a couple of the speakers tonight have addressed the crowd as "my friends"?

    Doesn't McCain use that phrase at the beginning of every sentence?

    Kinda scary. I don't want "friends" like them!
