Rick Klein, from ABC’s The Note: The latest from the weirdest first day of a convention anyone is likely to see for a while . . .
Item One: The convention actually isn’t a convention today at all.
Item Two: This morning, the always colorful Karl Rove called Sen. Joe Biden "big, blowhard doofus."
Item Three: Biology as pushback — the McCain campaign puts out word about the Palin pregnancy.
Maybe it’s just as well that this day is lost to the McCain campaign — and they still have three days to tell the story they hoped to tell in four.
Maybe (as seems to be the case early on) the GOP base will rally around Gov. Palin in this latest revelation.
But how many more weird developments before that becomes the story — that nothing else can be told this week?
