Sarah, Sarah, Sarah...

If John McCain's plan was to announce his vice presidential choice the day after barack Obama's acceptance speech was in fact designed to "steal his opponents thunder," he succeeded far beyond anyone's imagination -- including his own I believe. Since last Friday it has been all Sarah Palin.

And tonight, we get our first real chance to find out who she is really, and what's she's really made of, when she accepts the Republican nomination. Just as Obama's acceptance speech was highly anticipated, so is Palin's....and maybe even more so.

McCain's choice was a of those that could backfire and cost him the election, or one that might prove to be the most brilliant choices of any presidential campaign ever. Time will tell on that one. But I'm looking forward to her speech tonight.

As for last night's opening of the Republican convention....I thought Lieberman's speech was okay, not great, but okay. I certainly understand his support for McCain, but have to admit I found it hard to accept his praise for Palin. She is, in fact, on the opposite end of most issues with his own beliefs. But then again, she was picked because she is a "reformer," and that is what McCain is all about.

the best speech of the night was Fred Thompson. In fact, it was so good that if he had given speeches like that when he was running, he might have actually done better in the GOP primaries.

Palin's speech was just what I expected, especially after the pit-bull speech by Giuliani immediately preceding hers. Check out Gloria Steinem's response to Palin...I agree with her every word. It's here:,0,1290251.story

I agree with Ann Coulter’s most recent op-ed:

• Palin as V.P. finally gave real Republicans a reason to vote for McCain. {That is other than B. Hussein Obama).

• The liberal media claims Palin was chosen only because she's a woman. In fact, Palin was chosen because she's pro-life, pro-gun, pro-drilling and pro-tax cuts.

• As a right-winger, Palin will appeal to the narrow 59 percent of Americans who voted for another former small-market sportscaster: Ronald Reagan.

• If you're going to say Palin was chosen because she's a woman, you're going to have to demonstrate that the runners-up were more qualified. Ann can think of 40 million un-born reasons why Tom Ridge, Joe Lieberman, the other also-rans are less qualified than Governor Palin.

• Excited by the choice, gun-ho Republicans gave McCain 10 million bucks in the two days online subsequent the Palin announcement. Who else could have delivered that for McCain?

• Palin has more executive experience than the Democrat nominee for President and Vice President COMBINED. [For that matter, she has more experience making tough decisions than McCain].

Oh and one thing I didn’t read in the Bulletin. Palin's ex-brother-in-law tasered his 10-year little stepson. Well there goes the best issue you guys got against her. I would have tried to have that bully fired too.
