PoliticoConservative media outlets are gleefully sharing video footage that appears to show Bill Clinton dozing off during his wife’s primetime acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Breitbart, The Daily Caller, Infowars and The Gateway Pundit all featured posts with the video of Bill Clinton sitting next to vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, with his head dropping and his eyes closed. …

The media outlets particularly seized on the idea that Bill fell asleep as Hillary Clinton, a former secretary of state, was delivering a line about the fight against the Islamic State.

Here is everything I hate about politics in one excerpt.

Bill Clinton dozing off in the middle of his wife’s speech is objectively funny. It shouldn’t matter where you are relative to the Clintons on the political spectrum, a guy falling asleep while is wife is talking is objectively hilarious. It’s relateable. It’s human. It’s universal. It should be one of those “there but for the grace of God go I” moments everyone can have a laugh about.

But if you support Hillary you’re supposed to pretend it isn’t funny. And demonize anyone who laughs about it. And believe me, the reverse is true. If Donald Trump drifted off to the Land of Nod while Melania Trump was stealing Michelle Obama’s speech, the liberal side would be having a field day. And with good reason. Politico, “The Daily Show” and The Huffington Post would be all over him while the conservative press would be hammering them for their bias.

Well, that’s not my idea of politics. In Jerry Thornton’s America, finding your wife’s speech so boring you can’t keep your eyes open transcends our petty differences. Laughing at another husband’s harmless misfortune should rise above ideology. And regardless of your political leanings, we need to be able to reach across the aisle in the spirit of bipartisanship and admit it’s hysterical.

This election has three months to go. And whether they’re falling asleep or being weirdly fascinated by balloons, mocking and ridiculing the candidates and the people close to them is what can make America great again.

Not to make excuses, but it’s been a busy week. Between doing 20 hours of radio, going to Patriots training camp and feeding the blog, I haven’t had time to address every topic. Especially the Patriots’ personal lives, which have been at Warp Factor: 10 lately. But I’m not about to let the sun set on another day without mentioning the news, apparently confirmed (at least not denied) that Julian Edelman is having a baby with Swedish model Ella Rose.

Now, I acknowledge that some people might not approve, but I’m not here to tell adults how to live their lives. And besides, the formula of having a baby with an insanely attractive woman, then dating a Brazilian supermodel and still being a loving, responsible father has worked out pretty well for this team before.

Anyway, I think we should get to know Ella a little better, since she’s practically going to be family in 5 1/2 months. Congratulations to Edelman and the lovely Ms. Rose on their coming blessed event.

After two weeks of listening to speeches that were meant to inspire the nation but ultimately were various degrees of boring, overly long, self-indulgent, irrelevant, weird or just plain stupid, it’s refreshing to hear one of our leaders who knows how to get to the point. This is the kind of people we need running the country. But unfortunately, we only have one. And he’s got more important business to work on.

Sports Illustrated has done a profile of Aaron Hernandez’s brother Jonathan as he tries to face life as the brother of a famous convicted murderer. It’s a great read and makes you feel for the guy as he struggles to find his path, given the fact that he had nothing to do with what an evil sociopath his brother turned out to be but nevertheless is paying a price for someone else’s sins.

But it also gives us a peak into Aaron’s prison life, including one tidbit that absolutely made my head explode:

“Aaron probably never recommended a book in his life before he ended up here, but incarceration has turned him into a reader. He has plowed through all the Harry Potter books.”

No. No, no, no. This cannot be allowed to happen. You do not get to enjoy the adventures of the world’s most beloved boy wizard, Aaron Hernandez. That’s for decent, moral, non-murderers only.

As someone who read every single one of those books at a kid’s bedtime, complete with each distinct character voice like doing an audiobook (my Hermoine Granger was especially spot-on), and own all the movies, it is an affront to me that you would be pouring through the books in your blood-stained hands.

And what does it say about our criminal justice system that a killer gets to read one of the great works of family literature ever? It’s an outrage. Murderers shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy the story of the Boy Who Lived Under the Stairs, going off to Hogwarts to discover who he really is. Of his friendships with Hermoine and Ron as they learn how friendship can triumph over unspeakable evil. Of Dumbledore’s secret arrangement that leaves us guessing about the true nature of Professor Snape right up until the very end of the last book. Of Sirius Black’s sacrifice and Neville Longbottom’s courage and Mrs. Weasley’s maternal vengeance at the Battle of Hogwarts and how Harry finally ends up with Ginny in the end.

These things are precious to some of us. And to have a guy facing trial for yet two more murders after being convicted of one already is an abomination. As Harry himself says at the end of “Order of the Phoenix,” “You’re the one who is weak. You will never know love or friendship. And I feel sorry for you.”
