Jennifer Granholm’s bizarre Howard Dean moment: Mockery, pics & video!/CarolCNN/status/244014099627905025

Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm helped close out the last night of the Democratic National Convention with all the unhinged theatrics of Tom Cruise and the over-the-top screeching of Howard Dean. As Granholm might say, God has ways of shutting internal filters down.

I finally saw a clip of Granholm's speech. #TheHell?

The mockery was swift.

It's like Granholm went back to overacting school with Al Pacino.

Is Jennifer Granholm a real person? It looks like she's an actor, playing the role of a kooky pitchwoman. This speech is weird.

Bless her precious heart. The former governor is hoping to inspire an Eastwooding-style trend with her antics: Granholming.

Is #Granholming starting to trend on Twitter? We hope so! Full speech transcript here: cc @JenGranholm #TheWarRoom

Of course, some lapdogs thought Granholm’s wild performance was the best thing ever.

Wow. Granholm's speech absolutely over-the-top crowd pleaser.

— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) September 7, 2012

Granholm is fantastic! Part union boss, part Tina Turner.

CNN is playing Granholm's speech as tho her meltdown was a good thing.

— John Nolte (@NolteNC) September 7, 2012

All in all, a great close to the Dem convention.

Jennifer Granholm made a fool of herself and Obama flopped. Way to close, Dems.
