The Democratic Party-Party Convention is over, and its singular memory will be its predictable banality and the commercialism that mostly financed it.
Historically, conventions were newsworthy because there was a struggle over who would receive the nomination and what the Parties would stand for in their platforms.
Today, there is a coronation for the nominee and inquiries about what would be on the menus of the 250 parties that corporations and their smooth-tongued lobbyists were throwing for their favorably-positioned congressional bigwigs.
