In the Convention Hall During McCain’s Speech

We are sitting in the convention hall and so far 3 different protesters have unfurled signs and yelled at Sen. McCain, only to be drowned out by chants of “USA!”
Honestly though, the audience seems very listless with only about 1/3rd standing during most applause lines. The loudest applause came when McCain said the words ‘Palin’, ‘Bush’, or ‘Petreaus’.
Oh, by the way. I’m sitting next to Paul Reickhoff of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
Update: “Drill, baby drill!!” Loudest chant so far
