The last day of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, was full of celebrities, touching moments, rousing speeches (I'm looking at YOU, Jen Granholm!), and -- finally -- President Obama's speech accepting the nomination. And social media was following right along:

curious why a commentator would say this is NOT the mommy party but the daddy party? why does confidence or a good speech need gender? @cnn
Vice President @joebiden: “Osama bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive.”
Shame on Joe Biden, turning the Bin Laden killing into a cheap political slogan.
I like to imagine Jill Biden & MObama hanging out drinking martinis, complaining about this silly "why I love my husband" speech obligation.
And it felt like all of Twitter choked up as Gabby Giffords led the pledge of allegiance.
Amazed by Gabby Giffords. I was a primary caregiver for someone w a severe brain injury. I have a small idea of what that huge moment took.
Gabrielle Giffords just said the Pledge of Allegiance at #DNC2012 and I'm pretty sure there's not a dry eye in the house.
@kerrywashngton "The other side wants to...render us invisible." getting great response from delegates..."none of us can be silent"
Fun fact: Scarlett Johansson comes from longtime NY Dem family; grandmother was a tenants'-rights advocate. (via the New Yorker)
Well @evalongoria, no one is stopping you from paying more in taxes.Go right ahead!
I see your Myth Romney and raise you a B(a)roke Obama.
Barney Frank on stage now, undermining the sanctity of Newt's three marriages.
In your car & on your ballot, the D is for Drive forward & the R is for Reverse. And in this election, we're driving forward, not back!
Is Jennifer Granholm a real person? It looks like she's an actor, playing the role of a kooky pitchwoman. This speech is weird.
If I ever get a time machine, I'm using it to take this John Kerry back to 2004.
Kerry line you'll definitely be hearing again: "Ask Osama bin Laden if he's better off now than he was four years ago."
What was your most memorable moment from the convention? Or were you not watching?
