It really hurt me to be subjected to CNN's coverage of GOP floor delegates dancing to Earth, Wind, & Fire recordings. Describing what they were doing as "dancing" is charitable. It was painful to watch. Brooks Brothers suits stiffly stirring invisible cauldron paddles with tightly clinched fists. If there was ever a case against the urban myth that white guys (only 2% of the Republican delegates in Minneapolis are African American) can't dance, the GOP convention was not it. Funk deserved a better fate.
