So I guess for all of those PUMA women and other bitter Hillary Clinton supporters, tonight they found a new leader in Gov. Sarah Palin.
But before I get to Palin, let me just say that I don’t know what channel you were watching the speech on—that is if you were watching it at all—but I was watching CNN. And in doing so, there were a few things that I noticed.
First, gone are the over abundance of Black commentators the week of the Democratic National Convention.
Second, was it just me or was the audience overwhelmingly white. I mean there were a few Blacks sprinkled in here and there that I gather CNN’s camera operators where trying to highlight as best they could whenever they spotted one—but overall, I’d have to say that the GOP is still the GOWP and that was clear and apparent tonight.
Third, can we just say it’s official now that Cowboy Troy has officially crossed over.
Now onto Sarah Palin, who by all accounts has more energy and tage presence than Sen. John McCain—oh, and she can lift her arms higher when she waves than he can too.
Matthew Scully, Palin’s speechwriter, used her to send a message to the Obama campaign that McCain hasn’t been able to deliver—at least not with the delivery that Palin gave tonight. While I don’t agree with her politics, she’s definitely a better speaker than her counterpart and kept my attention in a way that no one in her Party has been able to do thus far.
However, all of the Obama attacking was a bit tired and didn’t do much except for put her in the same ranks as Hillary Clinton who was also good at delivering smart and witty pre-written attacks against her opponents.
Which is precisely what the McCain camp wants—to persuade those bitter Hillary Clinton supporters to find hope in Sarah Palin as their new leader.
She’s female, she’s white, she’s a mom, and she can talk shit with the best of em’.
“We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco,” Palin said tonight.
Well, I prefer candidates that don’t try to push their ideologies on the rest of country but then change the rules for their family—i.e. Palin’s 17-year-old pregnant and unwed daughter and the Party of Moral Righteousness.
“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?”
Sounds like someone has been listening to Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Messiah rhetoric.’
If you’re a Republican—Palin hit a homerun—no better yet—the self-titled hockey mom scored a goal tonight. If you’re on the fence, hopefully Palin’s speech and those before you was just the push you need to be pushed over to the party of lesser evil—the Democratic Party.
On a good note—at least Palin’s daughter—Piper, the youngest, left her tiara at home tonight.
Speaking of Piper, now that’s the debate I’d like to see go down…Piper vs. Sasha. My money is on Sasha.
