Well worth the wait
There were a lot of things I liked about Palin's speech but to say it in a few words, there was "meat" there, not just "milk."
In places, sure, she played the expected partisan game. In others, the speech took a very serious turn and caused me to reflect more on the gravity of the choice for President than I had so far this year. Maybe, because I take some of the issues she spoke about very seriously, myself.
I like Palin for VP. I'm cautiously optimistic.
She struck me as very real, very smart, perfectly self-controlled.
A pit bull with lipstick. Yeah.
(Did anyone else watching PBS think Gwen Ifill looked disappointed and morose when she gave her closing thoughts?)
