Last night, the question about Sarah Palin wasn't if she's risen too fast, but where she's been for so long.
She may have given the best speech of either political convention. She delivered a brilliantly written text flawlessly. Politicians who've been on the national stage for decades could do no better, and usually do worse.
Newsrooms across America must be in abject despair. The unlikely VP nominee the media hoped to crush out of the gate is unaffected by their condescension and scorn - and is bent on giving better than she takes.
Miss Congeniality isn't afraid to administer an old-fashioned beat-down. Annie Oakley brought a gun to a knife fight and made like the Obama-Biden ticket was a moose lazily meandering into her gun sights.
she said the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom is "lipstick." It wasn't just a cute line. She immediately began to prove it, starting with her killer line that being mayor of a small town is just like being a community organizer - except you have actual responsibilities.
She was merciless on Obama's elitism, scoring him for saying one thing about working-class voters in Scranton and another in San Francisco. By the end, you began to feel sorry for him for having been so thoroughly eviscerated by a woman and to wonder - how are Obama and Biden possibly going to handle her?
Palin was obviously comfortable laying body checks on Obama. In fact, she seemed to enjoy it.
Throughout, she never lost that ineffable quality that is literally priceless - her likability.

With Palin, critics stoop to new lows
Savages on far left blogs, along with cohorts in some of the mainstream media, have stopped at nothing to invade Sarah Palin’s privacy and vilify her family.
Unapologetic, overt sexism runs swiftly through the blogosewer.
“After the birth of her fifth child, she was back in the office after a few days,” laments Washington Post columnist Sally Quinn...
Palin rose to prominence by taking on a corrupt establishment, not playing by its rules. Barack Obama - the head of his ticket - rose to a relatively low-level of power through Chicago’s notoriously corrupt political machine. He has never been known for raging at that machine.
Palin manages a $11 billion budget - more than former Arkansas Gov. Clinton...
Obama has never managed public finance. Instead, he has a short political career centered mostly on speaking and writing.
Palin is the executive in charge of 15,000 state employees; Obama has employed a handful of government employees in a Senate office.
Palin has dealt with union disputes, lawsuits, oil leases, major infrastructure projects, and hundreds of other routine issues any governor must process daily.
There are 18 million PUMA gals who will switch over.They respect Palin, but so far do not identify with her ideology. Palin could appeal to them by saying that Obama needs to be defeated because of what he did to Hillery inside of the Dem convention.Obama muzzled Hillery speakers in private caucus, spread horrible rumors, and also bused in supporters from out of state during several swing state primaries.
The PUMApac.org gals hate Obama. Millions hate him enough to vote McCain. Many have stated they will on the PUMApac.org blogs.The more uncommitted women who go for the McCain ticket, the more likely that PUMA gals will come over too.
That has Obama campaign workers all in a frenzied tizzy. Its interesting to read the PUMA blogs. That is why they have tried to defame Palin in the fascist style. Obama is a fascist, so are his campaign workers. Hillery didn't know until it was too late for her to do anything about it.Hillery has an abiding hatred for the Obamster. She means to take back the Dem party from Obama, Soros, and Howard Dean.
Without those four networks, achieving the audience Palin did is a monumental PR accomplishment.
glad you are on board....
i was not sure what to do...in fact, having just moved to California from Indiana, i was not registered to vote...and, i was considering sitting this one out.
the day after she was indicated as the VP candidate....
i sent a contribution to McCain...and indicated i was referred to the campaign by Sarah Palin
and...i sent in my registration form.
now, its very unlikely that Palin/McCain will get the California electoral votes....but i want my vote in the national totals...
McCain’s Speech Draws 38.9 Million Viewers
The total exceeded the 38.4 million who watched Democratic nominee Barack Obama last month.
Obama’s Aug. 28 address also aired on Black Entertainment Television and TV One, channels primarily geared to black audiences.
Those networks didn’t air McCain’s speech.
Obama’s Years at Columbia Are a Mystery
Rep. Charles Rangel paid no mortgage interest on a beach resort property for about 15 years...
Rangel failed to report rental income from the resort property on his taxes, but didn’t realize it was necessary because of the way the deal was structured.
