Between taping, and watching the Coverage of the Democrat and Republican Conventions I was glued to the TV like I haven't been in quite some time.
Needless to say I was less than impressed by the Dimocrats, and the Nutroots lovefest, though the speech by The Chosen One was an impressive bit of Socialist Propaganda, and was blown away by the Republicans.
The choice of Sarah Palin surprised, and impressed me.
What she has gone thru, in attacks from the Liberal Nutroots, Mainstream Media, and even an official Obama Website, so far, has angered me no end.
As much as I loved the speeches by Thompson, and Giuliani, Palins speech was a glorious, star making, turn.
Palin to Detractors:
....kiss my perky small town, Middle American, Christian, Ass. ;-D
...and as for you Obama, and Biden... ;-D
My God, that was GLORIOUS! ;-D
As one person on FOX noted, the speech may have been written by someone else, but there can be no doubt from its content, and themes, that she had to have had significant input in how the message was framed.
Her performance was a very poised, very funny, very powerful, very specific, very pointed, F*** U! aimed at the Left, the Media, and the Nutroots. ;-D
If she can survive the next 2 months and, if McCain is elected, she survives, and grows, in the job of VP, this Star has a very reasonable chance of becoming the 1st woman President, in 4 or 8 years. (Sarah Palin: Most popular candidate in the race)
I was also impressed by the speech of John McCain, though it was a far less spectacular piece of writing than that of Palins powereful stemwinder, it WAS interspersed with a few show stopping moments that roused the audience.
The Elephants had more viewers for their week, than the
Jackasses Donkeys according to Nielson:
The Republican convention was the most-watched convention on television ever, beating a standard set by the Democrats a week earlier.
Nielsen said that 38.9 million people watched McCain accept the GOP nomination Thursday.
Last week, Obama's speech in Denver was seen by 38.4 million
This week's ratings, with an average of 34.5 million viewers watching the GOP convention over three days, proved people are becoming more interested in what the Republicans have to say.
The Democrats had an average audience of 30.2 million over four days, Nielsen said.
All that with 4 fewer networks tuned in to the Republicans than the Dims!
Obama, and his Socialism, scares the hell out of me, and every intelligent American paying attention to the election:
This is freakin' scary, and disturbing, and needs to receive the widest audience possible.
I guess the American Revolution, the Civil War, World War 1, World War 2, Korea, the Cold War, Vietnam, and Iraq 1 and 2, don't count for a hill of beans?
As others have pointed out...this is just so condescending to African Americans, as well.
Okay, that's enough!
I only am writing about this, on this blog, because we were ALL glued to our sets the last 2 weeks, and I felt it important that I weigh in with my thoughts.
My Inner Political Junkie will now go back into hiding. ;-D
