Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, September 03, 2008

I think Sarah Palin rather effectively introduced herself to the American public tonight.
Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the current do-nothing Senate, not long ago summed up his feelings about our nominee.

He said, quote, “I can’t stand John McCain.” Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps no accolade we hear this week is better proof that we’ve chosen the right man. Clearly what the Majority Leader was driving at is that he can’t stand up to John McCain.

That is only one more reason to take the maverick of the Senate and put him in the White House. My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.” This world of threats and dangers is not just a community, and it doesn’t just need an organizer.
And one of my favorite parts:
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word “victory” except when he’s talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.

Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit.
I'm beginning to appreciate why she's been named "Sarah Barracuda".

First Rudy, then Palin, wow, that was two hits right out of the ballpark. This is what was necessary to get me enthusiastic about McCain.

I stated publicly that I would not support him if he chose a bad VP. But this has exceeded my expectations.

I hope he makes Rudy the press secretary. I would love to see him gut and fillet David Gregory.

I thought that she started out a bit slow and then really hit her stride. Our friends on the left have misunderestimated Governor Palin at their peril.

The Dems (and their lackeys in the press) certainly underestimated Palin. She appeared quite happy to take them on, regardless of whether its a home or away game.

I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities.
Geeze, and we thought McCain would be the attack-dog...

I think I see a mushroom cloud over the Obama Camp...

Apparently, they’re starting to realize that:
Several moderate-Democrat friends of mine have been emailing—few if any would ever vote for McCain—but all agree that Palin was very strong. The more liberal among them are a little panicked.

I really don’t want to be premature about this, and I’ve tried not to say "it’s over for Obama" but ...
Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden said yesterday that he and running mate Barack Obama could pursue criminal charges against the Bush administration if they are elected in November.
As reported in the Guardian mere hours ago.

This is what desperation looks like. If, at this point in the campaign, the best they can pull is the "we’ll throw that criminal mastermind Bush behind bars!" if they are so bereft of ideas they’re swinging for the Democrat Underground crowd, I’ll come out and say it: it’s over. This is a hard left swerve, and a cracking of the veneer. And I can’t help but think it is a frantic move leaping full-armed from the sweaty brow of desperation. A pale brow beaded courtesy of Sarah "Baracuda" Palin.

Rock.

McCain is so far inside Obama’s OODA loop, it’s actually kinda sad...

*chuckle* I can’t believe you dense righties fell for her act. I mean, I know you’re dense and all, and you really, really want to believe that McCain has a ghost of a chance even after we wise leftists have assured you the election is over. But she’s so transparent! Her speech was obviously written for her by GOP power-mongers, and she was intensively coached to make it come out to please the delegates.

But the American people won’t be fooled. Certainly the people here in the faculty lounge were not. We hooted at half her lines. And who does she think she is, making fun of Obama? Why, the entire black population will be offended by her remarks! Why, I bet the percentage of the black vote that goes for Obama will be at least 95% now. Well, I suppose it would probably be at least 94% no matter what, but still. They’ll be angry!

And they’ll tell the media how angry they are. And we’ll continue to see article after article tearing her down for her hairdo, her accent, her nondescript degree from some Idaho cow college, her pregnant daughter, her alcoholic husband, and the way she treated that poor innocent government worker just because she didn’t like him.

No, the American people are much too smart to be taken in by such an obvious phony as Palin. The election is over. You dense righties are just delusional to think otherwise.

I’ve got to give credit to McCain. He is running a pretty good campaign and choosing Palin is a good decision so far. Who knows if she can withstand the media onslaught although, after tonight, she seems pretty tough to me. I hope she kicks Biden’s a$$ in the debate.

I’ve read it somewhere but I think it bears repeating - Obama is learning how to play checkers while McCain is playing a masterful game of chess.

Wow.

Gloria Steinem is apoplectic. The faux feminists can’t stand a woman who actually likes being a woman and is good at it. To paraphrase George Hanson (Easy Rider): "Oh, yeah, they’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about women being equal to men. But when they see a woman actually doing it, it’s gonna scare ’em".

We may have seen the first female President of the United States. Yeah, it’s early. But wow.

The McCain Palin signs go up in the yard today. I’ll probably send $ to the Libertarian Party, as per usual, but my vocal support and vote are going to the team that has the best chance of stopping the nightmare that will follow if the bad guys win.

McCain is looking like a genius.

Oh yeah, wow.

Sorry for the multiple posts, I had to edit out the term "E_u_r_o S_o_c_i_a_l_i_s_t" (without the underscores)before it would take.

Yeah, sorry about that Augustus. Some villain in marketing decided that "Ci@lis" would be a good name for a pharmaceutical. So out goes "Speci@list" and "Soci@lism" and so on, so that we can filter out some of the spam.

The campaign crew around McCain were probably rolling on the floor with joy about halfway through that speech.

Honestly, taken as a whole, I’ve never seen anything like it in American politics.

Completely down to earth, none of that high-flown BS, an exactly real person, with an exactly real life. You cannot manufacture stuff like that. She sat right down at the kitchen table with people and told them, yeah, I know how you feel and this is exactly how I’m going to be when I sit down at the table in Washington, and they didn’t just want to believe her, they did believe her.

She has it all working, and the Democrats should be happy only in one respect: that she’ll be debating Joe Biden and not Obama himself. Because she’d take him apart so bad he’d be crying.

Biden: no president ...is above the law
If he and Obama are truly convicted that the president is guilty of crimes, they should begin the impeachment process. What are they waiting on? Since they have not, they either do not truly believe what they say or do not have any balls.

Do you suppose she has a bit of that old FDR fireside chat quality? The way she defined their energy policy makes me think so. It would be interesting to have her do a series of televised talks about conservatism/libertarianism.
