I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we don’t quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren’t listening.
That above set a tone for the speech that the Democrats are still trying to spin. This lady who the media has tried to discredit all week and the Obama campaign has had trouble discrediting last night stood up before America and showed why she was John McCains selection for VP and why she will be a tremendous asset to him, his campaign and eventually the people of the United States.
Her speech was strong and well delivered. Her impromptu moment of addressing the hockey moms was lighthearted, funny and well received. She took a swipe at the elite media who are now back on their heals, as they thought for sure all of the hard work they have put into getting Obama elected had paid off.
But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion – I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.
But this lady from Alaska has shown them they do not control the American people and they have even less influence now then ever before.
Last night America saw a recharged Republican party, they have seen the future of America and they now understand why the McCain/Palin ticket is the only one that makes sense for America.
