I saw the majority of Palin’s speech at the RNC last night, and I have to say I was impressed, but my admiration of the speech seems to pale in comparison to what the rest of the media has been saying. Apparently she came off even better than I realized, even when her teleprompter broken halfway through the speech (Anyone remember what happened to Obama when his teleprompter malfunctioned?).
And while I’m at it:
Obama needs to clarify what he means about “sex education for 5-year-olds.” Look just after the 2:20 mark.
I didn’t intend to post links to those videos that I’ve had stored back, but they just kind of slipped. Now back to Palin:
The most interesting article that I’ve seen thus far comes from the British media. I’ve long admired the wittiness and humor that they sprinkle into even their more “professional” publications, but this article from the Sun was more positive than I could’ve expected. Read the entire article here, but I’m posting a few highlights.
Today she is the most talked-about woman in the world. And with good reason.
Sarah Palin’s sensational performance at the Republican Party Convention may turn out to be the tipping point of this rollercoaster American election.
Obama fans hoping she would fluff her big night were in for a nasty shock.
This speech has turned the election upside down. It was simply stunning.
For an unpopular party divided over Iraq and struggling to compete with Obama’s Messianic glamour, the choice of Palin looks absolutely inspired.
Main Street America will have loved her performance.
And it was seen by 30million voters – the greatest number ever to watch a candidate for the much-derided VP post.
When she duffed up the Lefty media commentators for their sexist sneers, the vast crowd roared approval and pointed in anger at the titans of the American press aloof in their special enclosure.
And quite right too: who ever asked whether Obama could still be a good dad if he became president?
The irony, as Palin pointed out, is that liberal media sniping has only succeeded in uniting Republicans behind her.
And what I considered the most stunning of all…
But most fascinating of all, consider this: If Obama loses, Hillary Clinton will run in 2012. Opposing her is sure to be Sarah Palin.
That would guarantee America its first woman president.
And my fistful of dollars, having seen both in action here, would be on Palin.
