All the Lefties in the media could say was "well she didn't write it"...
Ace has the perfect response to that script:
The MSM's and yours.
MSM Talking Point: Repeated endlessly, "Someone wrote her speech!"
Someone wrote Obambi's speech, too, Hoss. Didn't see you pointing that out then.
Britt Hume directly challenged Nina Eaton and Mort Kondracke on their repetition of this mantra.
OOOOH!!! Obama's statement says in the first paragraph she delivered the speech well, but it was written by George Bush's old speechwriter -- Gee, I wonder if that's why Mort and Nina and everyone at MSNBC were already repeating that line?
Hey, MSM: Your lines were written by Barack Obama's spokesman.
Am I lying?
(read the whole thing)
And when that's all they could say, it is a pretty good indication--as I have believed since Friday afternoon--that Barack Obama is in deep doo-doo. The media may have framed this as John McCain "rolling the dice", but John McCain has come way to far and gone through way too much along the way to not have had a very good idea how those dice would come up.
And to those imbeciles who were thinking McCain would drop her from the ticket: consider that he spent 5 years being tortured and encouraged to abandon his fellow prisoners--which he would not do; he is not about to abandon this woman, and would not have even if she had fallen flat on her face.
But she didn't, did she? To walk out on that stage, with a malfunctioning teleprompter, with all that pressure, speaking to the largest live audience she had ever faced, with an unprecedented national TV audience watching (many on the Left predicting and rooting for her to fail...), and considering all of the bullshit she and her family has had to endure over the last few days--and then to hit a home run like that? This woman may well become the first female President. She was that good.
The fact that the media didn't get it that you do not defeat an incumbent Governor and then garner an 85% approval rating in the largest state in the Union by being a rube says a lot more about the media than it does about John McCain. But fortunately for the GOP all the MSM could see since Friday was a conservative wearing a dress. Until now, that is. ("The Horror. The Horror...")
A couple of hours before Sarah Palin rocked the house in St. Paul last night, I caught a few minutes of Bill O'Reilly's interview with Sally Quinn, who is front and center among the female media elites chastising Sarah Palin for her supposed inability to manage the demands of the Vice Presidency with the role of nurturer in chief among her own brood.You will want to read the rest...
We women are not known for our capacity to mind our own business. As soon as I saw Sarah Palin take to the podium, though, Quinn and her minions' disdain for the tough-as-nails-smooth-as-satin Alaskan governor became crystal clear.
They cannot stand her because she easily makes 4 or 5 of them. Palin is able to accomplish, with one arm seemingly tied behind her back, more real work with less complaint than nearly all the working liberal women in America. From liberal women, one hears nothing but complaint and woe-is-me tales of how unbearably hard their lives as women have been.
Sarah Palin doesn't wallow; she doesn't entertain pity for her lot.
She loves being a woman. She loves being a mother. She loves her husband. She loves America. And she certainly does not shy from hard work on the people's behalf.
On those down-to-earth, solid-gold issues Sarah Palin made her speech last night to an all-American embrace that will not be soon forgotten.
Palin rules; Libs drool.
When Barack Obama's campaign unleashed their first stab at Palin's candidacy last Friday, by condescendingly mocking her experience as mayor of a town of 9,000, they opened the door to this Palin zinger:"I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities."This line was delivered by Sarah Palin with such amazing aplomb that I wondered how many would be brave enough to point out how far this woman has surpassed the hyped-up charisma of Barack Obama. Not only does she best him on the experience issue, but she easily outflanks him on stage appeal. Not bad for one night's work.
Palin rules; Libs drool.
On what is shaping up to be one of the most important issues of this presidential campaign, Governor Palin, artfully reminded Americans that she has presided over the government of one of our Nation's most important energy suppliers -- Alaska. And she addressed the drilling issue head on with an intro that should have shamed Nancy Pelosi into hiding under a desk somewhere. Governor Palin reminded Americans that "our opponents say again and again that drilling won't solve all of our energy problems - as if we didn't know that already."
No-nonsense Palin then proceeded to lay it out for the voters plain and simple, reminding us all that we must begin somewhere soon or saddle our children with an even worse energy situation:"...the fact that drilling won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we're going to lay more pipelines...build more nuclear plants...create jobs with clean coal...and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers."
Oh, am I ever going to sleep well tonight...
