During last nights event the live thread was locked, and I could find no other on FR. Anyone know why?

Here’s last night’s live thread. I was on it from 8:00 - 10:00 eastern, and it looks like it ran until the program ended.

No schedule posted at the website, what time is Palin speaking?

Over in Iraq and I want to make sure I watch it live.

I like John McCain’s pick of Governor Sarah Palin. The left is running around in circles acting like screaming crazy wacko’s over his pick. He’s got them running scared.

Makes me think McCain’s pick was brilliant!

How many times will the delegates turn to the MSM’s and scream something like ‘Stop The Misogyny’ or something during Palin’s speech? I just have a feeling it will be one of the most electric crowds in recent history, Obama’s Greek Coronation not withstanding. I hope it is viewed by more people than anyone and of course she knocks the speech right out of the ball park.

I cannot wait to see Governor Palin talk tonight. I saw her acceptance speech live and I was very impressed. I predict with confidence that she will bring down the house in Minnesota tonight.

I tried to put this into Breaking for you, but it will take a mod to do it....you put this in Chat, and there is no topic selection for Breaking in Chat...you need to put these in NEWS, so that Breaking is an option.....

I’m watching Fox News and they are showing the McCains and Palins at the airport in Minneapolis. Bristol Palin’s fiance is with her, holding her hand. The young man’s more mature and responsible than John Edwards ever thought of being.

Did anybody see on Fox News this morning the look on Bechtol’s face, when he was told that O’Reilly’s going to interview Obama on Thursday. He was in a state of shock and disbelief. So much so, he put his head in his hands.

After a minute or two passed, he said, “I wouldn’t put him on that show, but if gets through it, it could be a plus for him.”

Too funny. :-)

Rudy is supposed to be the keynote speaker tonight. I’ve also heard Mike Huckabee and someone else are scheduled to speak.

Unfortunately, Obama will probably set the rules for questions, and then be given them prior to any questions being asked. I doubt he’d go on the show without pre-conditions. Something he wouldn’t require for our worst enemies.

Fox, CNN, and PMSNBC were all covering Gov. Palin this am, while she was scoping out the Hall, and being ‘introduced’ to the Podium. Classic....

Fox let ‘fair and balanced’ Moonbat Lanny Davis talk about her.
PMSNBC had a Barking Moonbat talk about her (Laurence O’Donnell -sp?) what an idiot.
CNN had all their barking moonbats talking about her! Yep, RNC Convention coverage is almost as good as NBC’s Olympics coverage, just a ‘little’ more biased!

Doesn't it continue through the earlier hours? Like in the afternoon? Every time I check it just more of Obama, even CSPAN. I thought I saw part of the Dem convention in the early afternoon.

I don’t know about the RNC schedule or TV schedule. I cancelled Directv and have tuned out of TV for the year.

Has anyone been monitoring CSPAN coverage? I just turned it on and two callers in a row complained about Obama...the first that wanted to vote for a black man but that Obama wasn’t the right black man, the second about Obama’s cocaine usage. Is this the trend or an aberration?

CNN had Jack McCafferty on yesterday doing a total hit piece on Gov. Palin.
All the negative talking points, nothing positive. Tabloid in flavor.

He looked VERY angry, and had a very grim look on his face.
I was thinking to myself, “There's a 99.99% chance this guy is a registered Democrat.”

The text of the Palin speech will be posted on the Real Clear Politics website shortly after midnight. And by tomorrow morning video highlights will likely be posted at this site as well.

Rush said it all today: Mccain is not only running against Obuma but also the entire print and broadcast media, Hollyweird, and the entire Washington establishment including the gov’t. No easy task. Each and everyone of us who is so outraged over the treatment of Palin and MCcain should cancel every so called mainstream print publication and turn the TV off for good with the exception of Fox.

I am no starry-eyed teen looking forward to seeing my hero on tv but I find myself looking forward to this speech at least as much as I yearned for President Bush’ speech following the 9/11 attacks. This is quite possibly the most important speech in American politics in many years and could be either a home run or a swing and a miss....I am on pins and needles here.

7:30-9:30 others......9:30 Sarah Palin

That means network 'balanced' coverage will just be Sarah Palin....Rush just pointed out that last nite, NBC carried the 'President Bush' video feed only (ie, no applause from the Convention floor). So pregnant pauses during the video feed were when barking moonbats could comment amongst themselves....Expect Barking Moonbats to tune in to NBC again tonite....and of course CBS (and others) didn't carry Thompson at all....yep equal time....riiiight!

I would think all speeches will be on youtube very quickly but you can see the speeches using ustream.tv, it is what the GOP is using for the convention and is pretty good. You can see the speeches live or watch the replays right there.
