    she did good. I'm not surprised. She seems like a bright, articulate woman.

    They gave her a great speech and she nailed it.

    It's too bad she's not the one running, even with her NRA/pro-life bullshit I'd be tempted to vote for her....if I weren't getting John McCain in the deal.

    She did amazing. She showed knowledge of foreign policy in many aspects, she showed her knowledge of energy independence, she showed her understanding of working-class America, and she took great jabs at Barack Obama. Home run!

    Frankly, I don't know if my expectations were so low or that I really, really want to have sex with this woman, but I thought she gave a pretty good speech. Heck, I might have to become a Republican again!

    I LOVED the line, "What's the difference between a bulldog and a hockey mom? Lipstick."

    It sounded like a direct challenge to Biden.

    :lol: now don't go crazy toro... she's pretty fertile and doesn't believe in birth control

    I don't think it was that my expectations were low, cuz they weren't. I just didn't know what the expect.

    I will say this, she's one of the few Republicans I can actually LISTEN to speak for any length of time. She didn't bore the snot out of me and even if I strongly disagree with her she got her message across.

    It's the wrong message for the country at this point simply based on what Bush & Co have done to this country over the last 8 years. We can't take the chance on McCain/Palin because we can't trust that they won't continue on with business as usual.

    She hit that one out of the park. That was nothing short of outstanding. The hits were well placed and delivered with force and perfection. She even did it without an elaborate movie set. Great speech. Watch the polls bounce now.

    Hate to break it to you, but she didn't write those words. McCain's speech writers wrote it for her.

    Why can't you trust them? The WHOLE night has been about reform and change, every person who got on that stage talked about it, including Palin. They want change to, but as they said, there's good change, and there's bad change. It's clear to me the direction McCain/Palin wants to go, and it's the direction I want to follow in.
