Did somebody slip Jennifer Granholm 15 extra energy drinks before she spoke at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night? The former Michigan governor was almost unrecognizable as she morphed into a mix of a Howard Dean speech and Oprah giving everyone in the audience a new car. The Tom Cruise couch jumping incident looks like child’s play compared to the Granholm fist pump-a-palooza we saw last night.
At 1:42 is when she really starts to get going and then at 2:44 she loses her mind with the fist pumps (the Jersey Shore kids were jealous). I was concerned for her health at one point, when I noticed how red her neck and chest were becoming. She was doing so much yelling, I think Granholm forgot that there was a microphone in front of her. That microphone is attached to speakers, Jennifer, and their job is to amplify sound. I am not here to debate the merit of her message, I was just confused by the way she decided to convey it.
