General DNC Thread

So we can leave this thread dedicated to President Obama's speech, here's a space to discuss the other goings-on at the DNC last night. Some of my favorite moments:

Video Description: Rep. Gabby Giffords takes the stage, accompanied by Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to lead the Pledge of Allegiance. The audience goes absolutely wild. Her speech is still a bit slurred, and her right side still has some weakness, but she has made a remarkable recovery. So much blub.

Also! Former Republican Governor of Florida Charlie Crist rivals BrianWS in eyebrow acting [via]:

Thanks to Eastsidekate for the heads-up on that one. And thanks to Jessica for the heads-up on this:

Well, that's pretty much the cutest thing ever. Wrap it up! We're done here.
