After last night’s amazing speech, I’m jealous. Alaska, you can have Bill Ritter. Can we have Sarah Palin? Then I thought, in a few months she has a very good chance of being our vice-president. I’ll settle for that.
Interestingly, the Denver Post reports today about Gov. Ritter’s lackluster speaking performance at last week’s Democratic National Convention. A broken teleprompter appears to have been part of his problem. It seems Sarah Palin faced the same teleprompter problems, but went on unfazed to deliver a homerun. Could the same be said of Bill Ritter – or for that matter, Barack Obama – when they’re off teleprompter?
Broken teleprompter or not, I like this take from Michael at Best Destiny:
But let me just leave this first impression: the Bewitching Mrs. Best Destiny, who has the most active Bull S%*! alarm I’ve ever seen (a fact which has caused me no small amount of consternation over the years), and who, because of that, has almost no tolerance at all for politicians, WAS RIVETED by Sarah Palin tonight.
I was an easy sell–I wanted her to succeed; my wife had no stake in it, and loved what she saw.
This morning, Lefties are either suffering some serious heartburn, or in a terrible state of denial.
