Reactions to Cousin Oliver's debut

A tiny sample size, but hopefully indicative of the response we'll see nationally when convention-mania dies down.

Republican reaction: "Wow! Once again we see that the GOP can do no wrong!"

Democratic reaction: "Oh, Lord, not again..."

Independent reaction: "I never did like that episode where Greg's hair turns orange."

Actually, here are a few actual reactions from self-described independents:

"She was a Republican novelty act with a sophomoric script."
"She spent little time helping Americans learn who she is."
"I found her barrage of snide remarks and distortions to be a major turn off."
"Her delivery style reminded me of a high school valedictorian who also might have been a cheerleader."
