Like much of the nation, I was interested to hear what Sarah Palin had to say last night. I tuned into the Republican National Convention shortly after 7:00 pm and painfully listened to the same re-hashed criticisms through four speeches. First, Mitt Romney -- what a bore! I can't believe he made it as far as he has in the political arena. I think he might be a droid. But that would be an insult to droids. Second, Mike Huckabee. Honestly, he was probably your (and I'm speaking to my two-and-a-half conservative readers) strongest shot at the White House this year. His was actually remotely interesting and though I personally wouldn't vote for him, I think he could've mustered more states than McCain. Guiliani. Aacck. More of the same attacks while patting himself on the back for being the NYC Mayor during 9/11. And Palin. She reads a good teleprompter. And she has sharp delivery. Her speech writer must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. I didn't hear much that wasn't a jab, or just flat-out incorrect. Oh well. I wasn't expecting to be pleased with what I heard when I tuned in.
I've been trying all night to force myself to listen to McCain. But forty more minutes of the same might make my ears bleed.
