5 OMG Moments at the DNC

(CNN) - Anyone can turn on a TV, scan a newsfeed or fire up a laptop to get a sense of the important topics that were discussed at this week's Democratic National Convention. This is not about those important topics.

1. Biden goes off-script, literally

Grammarians and wordsmiths everywhere cringed as Vice President Joe Biden used the word literally instead of figuratively several times during his Thursday speech.

    She was so inspiring, I had tears of joy in my eyes to see her able to walk and talk. I think all 3 days of the DNC convention were inspiring. Even Joe Scarborough (a Repub) felt those 3 days were better than the RNC days. Good lines that I can remember: Jennifer Granholm (former gov of Michigan): "In Romney's world, the cars get the elevators and the workers get the shaft." From John Kerry: "talk about being for it before he was against it." and "A word of advice for Romney, before you debate the president, finish the debate with yourself."

    I think they forgot the OMG moment when the Dems tried to get God and Jerusalem back in the platform.

    Joe did better with his speech than I would have guessed and his ability to lie with a straight face is improving, but he will NEVER be as good at it as Clinton and Obama.

    If you ask the Republican politicians, they`re OMG moments would ALL be in Bill Clinton`s speech.
