I have to say that Guiliani rekindled all the reasons why I don’t like Republicans. I found myself yelling at the TV after nearly every line he delivered.
Then Palin came on. She actually made me forget Guiliani.
I watched on CSpan and they seemed to focus on her pregnant daughter an awful lot. But, the family was lovely. The youngest daughter was so sweet with her baby brother and seems like a character. She seemed to enjoy following her mom aroung and waving…but I think kids that age are like that! I recalled Guiliani’s son practically taking over one of Guiliani’s appearances a while back.
As for Palin herself. Impeccable delivery, firm but warm. The line that caught me was when she said that running for President was “not a journey of personal discovery” or something to that effect.
I cringed at “clean coal” and free trade…
But I thought her mentions of John McCain were on point and gracious–they didn’t seem forced.
The best part was when she took on the pundits and media and let them have it, and her “small town” talks was right on target.
Overall, she aced it. Biden better watch out. This woman is more than his match.
