Wow. Just wow.

I expected a lot tonight, and got a whole lot more than that.

John McCain brings in a ringer from the Great White North.

Reminded me of a B-52 Arc Light. A lot of ordnance, right on target.

I had tears in my eyes. The lady is fantastic. The media and the dems cannot afford to let her win, because Hillary will never get to the White House if Sarah gets there first. Big LOL at the left tonight. They see their goose cooking. Woo Hoo!!

I was pleasantly surprised at the positive comments on NPR after the speech. No snarky comments, even replayed her comment about Obama never authoring a major bill.

I honestly think she has the potential to become the USA’s version of Lady Thatcher, whom I, as a conservative woman, have always considered a role model.

I can’t offer any words, this woman is beyond any and all expectations. I even like her little giggle between volleys at Obama.

Somehow, I don’t think they’re up to the task.

She’s taken everything they’ve thrown at her since her nomination and not even blinked.

And some in the media are starting to realize that their sliming of her is backfiring. Badly.

As in possibly three to six million PUMA votes. And from what I read over on their websites, the more the MSM says, the madder the PUMAs get.

Not all of them will vote for Mc/P, but there’s a whole boatload of them that, by now, will walk on broken glass to do so.

And you’d be amazed that some of them are actually donating money to the Mc/P campaign.

And don’t forget about a whole lot more Red Staters who won’t stay home and have found enthusiasm about the ticket after a long drought.

Here’s how I’ve been bumping Palin/Obama threads today.

Sung to the tune of “Oh! Susanna, don’t you cry for me.”

“Oh, no Bama, please don’t lie to me... for I’m off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.”

I come from Minnesota with my laptop on my knee;
I’m goin’ to Free Republic my true love for to see.
It rained all night the day I left,
the weather it was dry;
The sun so hot I froze to death,
Obama don’t you lie.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I come from Minnesota,
with my laptop on my knee.

I had a dream the other night,
When everything was still;
I thought I saw Obama dear,
A-coming down the hill.
The smearing lie was in Duluth,
The tear was in his eye,
Said I, I’m coming for the truth
Obama don’t you lie.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I’m off to Free Republic,
with my laptop on my knee.

I fight in my pajamas,
It’s plain for all to see.
I aim to be the next Buckhead;
The media all hate me.
I fell in love with Sarah
When my sister bit a moose.
The Guvnor’s family ate it up
And then they set it loose.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I’m off to Free Republic,
with my laptop on my knee.

She loves her sons, she likes her guns,
and Trigonometry.
The media will jump the shark
When Juan makes history.
Well, JimRob knows she’ll pave the trolls
So controversially,
And Berg will knock Obama down
With friends of Hillary.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I’m off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee.

I soon will be in Hawaii,
And then I’ll look all ‘round,
And when I find his birth record,
I’ll fall upon the ground.
But if I do not find it,
This Freeper’ll surely die,
And when I’m dead and buried,
Obama don’t you lie.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you cry for me;
I’m off to Free Republic with a laptop on my knee

I like it.

My wife and I were in Hong Kong, coming off one of the MTR stations, when we heard music far off in the distance.

When you get off of a train, you can go several blocks underground before you get to go back up to street level.

We kept walking, the music got louder.

We came up on a Chinese man sitting on a box that was about six inches square and two feet tall, playing a two-stringed Chinese fiddle called an erhu and a harmonica in a bamboo harness, a la Dylan.

And what made it truly "Twilight Zone" was the fact that we'd come halfway around the world, and the first busker was not only playing music from the American Southeast, but archaic folk music: Oh, Susannah.

And you don't have to ask. I've played instruments for money in my past, so naturally I tipped him well.

With McCain/Palin we can look to a rebirth of the Republican Party and America.

They will take Washington by storm and clean out the Democrat filth in Congress and the White House. It will be like Heracles cleaning out the Augean Stables. And when it’s done, there will be a newer, cleaner, more limited government for America.

I thought all the speeches were fantastic, tuned with the the CEO of ebay, the former CEO of Hewlitt Packard, the governor of Hawaii, Giuliani, Mitt, even Huckabee, must have missed somebody, thought Cindy was going to speak, maybe I tuned in too late for that. I've never witnessed anything like this in my lifetime because I wasn't into politics when Reagan ran. She was uniquely herself and gorgeously scrappy, and I wouldn't compare to her to anybody in the past.

I'm glad they b!tch slapped the media. CNN commentators seemed kind of chastised by it, but they and the rest of them had it coming bigtime. Two places I saw very unflattering stills of her, CNN showed her with her tongue partly out. That wasn't nice and I'm sure was done on purpose. Our local paper picked another one that wasn't very flattering whereas almost at any angle she's very photogenic to say the least.

One thing they did say is they had copies of the speeches and she went off the script with the pitbull and lipstick remark. I thought that was one of the things I read that was excerpted and given to the press ahead of time. What gives?

She positively electrified that hall! I thought they weren't going to let her say anything but thank you! Her family rallying around her on the stage was really a sight to behold even though I thought some of them were a little uncomfortable in the spotlight which I found endearing. Just ordinary people at an extraordinary moment in history.

I want to hear more lots more of what she has to say in a different setting with a different delivery, not that I think she didn't do what was needed tonight, hit them hard.

I about jumped out of my chair when she said she put her jet on ebay it was so funny. But there will be some more foaming at the mouth in the days ahead.

I’ve heard that instrument, it has very sweet tones. I know a woman who plays it, she just picked it up and plays it by ear. Amazing talent.

Lately I’ve been entranced by the water harmonica.

In spite of his poor poll numbers, I feel that W. Bush has done an outstanding job as President. He began his presidency with three goals: revoking the Clinton tax hikes, increased de-regulaton, and re-building of the post-Clinton military. He was NOT a nation-builder. However, he always admits that 9-11 "changed everything". If we had not already had the June 2001 tax changes in place, no telling how much worse 9-11 would have been on the economy. He ended up being a nation-builder and the only real leader to try and help the African AIDS crisis. People criticized his speaking ability but many of his best speeches were delivered with Churchillian grace. I have kept copies of most of them. Yes, they were written by others, but he was incapable of reading them unless they connected to his emotions and his vocabulary.

He has said that the historians who will judge him haven't been born yet. I think that those people of the future will be kinder to him than today's fickle, ignoramous American public.

Isn’t a water harmonica generally used to accompany the waterboarding exercise when it is conducted on Dimwits?

I think the best line I heard to describe her speech was from Tombstone, “you called down the thunder, well now you got it!”
