Look above! What do you see? The Rhode Island delegation at the 2012 GOP Convention during the roll call… and what else? Look harder. What else? Give up?
See the pink spot below the face in the upper right-hand corner? You see it? Well, that’s Terry Bernardo, the Chairwoman of Ulster County Legislature. I know, Ulster County it’s not in Rhode Island. At least not yet! Don’t forget how resourceful Terry Bernardo is (even more so with her husband in tow).
We missed Terry at the convention. We hoped to see her waving, but our hopes were dashed during the roll call. So many delegates from New York – most of them taller than Terry – we couldn’t catch a glimpse of the famous pink suit. We were despondent… But then, miracle! We all saw this on Terry’s Facebook wall:
- “For everyone that missed me at the convention….. I got stuck behind the Rhode Island delegation…. watch for me at about 50 seconds into the video in the upper right corner of the screen…. I even wave :)”
Seriously now, do I have to draw you a picture? Here are the delegations’ sizes, from New York to Rhode Island:
New York (95 delegates)
North Carolina (55)
North Dakota (28)
Rhode Island (19)
Desperately looking for a way to get on TV, Terry moved with the roll call, from delegation to delegation, from New York to North Carolina to North Dakota, etc. Thank God for small states! Terry Bernardo “got stuck behind the Rhode Island delegation” and the rest is hysterical:
Don’t forget to see the video for yourself.
Speaking of video, there is another one on YouTube, posted by – who else? – Terry Bernardo. The video is a piece of crap, but Terry’s description is a gem:
- 2012 RNC Tampa, Romeny [sic] walks past the New York, South Carolina, Illinois, Wisconsin, Utah and Virginia delegations on the way to the stage to accept the Republican nomination for the President of the United States. He walks past me at about 1 minute 45 seconds into the video.
I suppose congratulations are in order for Mr. Romney.
Should we laugh or should we cry? Mayo Clinic defines the “narcissistic personality disorder as a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem…”
