« Coup de Grace? | Main | Obama campaign slams GOP cynicism »

Palin takes the stage, and the cheering is just going on and on and on ... for what, exactly?

Sara Anderson makes a good point over at her place in the line veto slashing of funds for teenage mothers.



The framing of her having her youngest child despite his being Down syndrome is pissing me off.

Oh yeah, you'll have to live blog it. I refuse to watch it - plus I'm at work.

I'm pretty much interested in hearing if it's particularly good or particularly bad. Canned and pedestrian doesn't do anything for me either way.

Well, just to be clear. I have no intention of doing play-by-play.

She did just mention that her son is deploying a week from now. Jon Soltz questioned at dKos today whether disclosing the deployment date is illegal. I'm sure Bubblehead will have something to say on this:


Palin is introducing her family, and I have to say: Bristol's beau looks shell- shocked.

"I was just your average hockey mom and signed up for the PTA ..." (wild cheers)

Talking about being mayor of Wasilla now. "I guess being a small-town mayor is like being a community organizer except you have actual responsibilities."

Slammed Obama for pretending to listen to working people "one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco."

Huge boos at mention of Washington insiders and media.

Ooops, I'm doing play by play.

I'm trying to listen for fundamentalist dog whistle phrases. "A servant's heart" could be one, though I honestly believe Barack Obama truly has that impulse, too.

Touting Alaska's new natural gas pipeline. Alas, she's not mentioning that it was God's will, just like the Iraq War.


Flat-out lying, as Lieberman did last night, about Obama's record. She says he hasn't authored any major bill nor reform. Uh, Walter Reed oversight? Ethics reform? Financial disclosure? Securing loose nukes? And in Illinois, expansion of health care for children, early childhood education, and $100 million in tax cuts to working families?

Just mocked Obama, asking what he'll do after "turning back the waters and saving the planet."
