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.
WRT my post #16, this morning it occurred to me that I neglected to mention Linda Lingle, the Governor of Hawaii, who spoke I thought on the night of Palin’s speech. She was an impressive lady, came across as very poised and intelligent, and I didn’t mean to slight her. Just for the record.
