The Convention Is A Potemkin village

I heard Sean Hannity refer to the Democratic National Convention as a Potemkin village. Now Senator Clinton has made the same accusations of the republican convention.

Now perhaps I am revealing my own deplorable ignorance here, but I decided I needed to look up in the dictionary what a Potemkin village was that both sides wanted to go accusing the other of building one.

After a through reading of both the Ameircan Heritage and dictionary.com definition I have 1 word for both Mr. Hannity and Sen. Clinton, "DUH!!!!" I mean what is the convention if not the best sounding rhetoric of the party. Politics as a whole is a Potemkin village. This accusation does not carry much weight for me on either side.
