Last night's performance was quite simply one of the best, and most effective, political speeches I've ever seen.
He lists a number of good talking points about Palin's speech last night, but one that stuck out for me was this:
10) I'm getting tired of hearing the word "poised" to describe her delivery. She did indeed exhibit great poise. But I started to wonder...is "poised" the female equivalent back-handed compliment that "articulate" is for blacks? ... Still...has anyone heard "poised" used to describe a man's performance?
Bottom line: we are tremendously excited now on the Republican side. For many of us, who were supporting McCain reluctantly or to block the alternative, we are now juiced about supporting this ticket --- and helping Sarah Palin move ahead on the national stage.
