Go, Balloons!

This is footage of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, immediately after John Kerry was formally nominated.

This is also footage of the coordinator of same trying to get the balloons to come down.

This is also footage of CNN giving breathless coverage of the electoral history of balloons falling at political conventions, as opposed to silly little things like John Kerry's stances on the issues as compared to opponent George W. Bush.

I was so glad I'd gone out to play poker that night, as it meant that I taped John Kerry's speech and (more importantly) this hilarious moment afterwards.

I'm not sure which reaction on the part of the CNN anchors is more absurd, the instant comparison to Carter in 1980 or the copout "We may have heard a profanity..."
