Again, impressions from last night:
- Reminder of how much I like Joe Lieberman
- New appreciation for what John McCain endured in the service to his country.
- A pang of regret that Fred Thompson will probably never hold high office in government again, which, in my opinion, is a national loss.
- Noting that George H.W. and Barbara Bush are definitely showing their age now, but are still imposing figures.
- Thinking what a national treasure Laura Bush is and Cindy McCain will be.
- Amazed how alert and well John McCain's 90+ year old mother is and how much she looks like Jessica Tandy.
- Appreciating how little negativity and how much positive energy was expressed last night.
- Renewed anger over the imminently double-standard and sexist media and leftwing response to Sarah Palin and renewed sympathy for Hillary who also had to endure some of that.
Would be interested in personal impressions of the evening from others who watched.
Good list, and to add my comment, Laura Bush is one class first lady. And history will show that George W. Bush was no slouch of a president.
Isn't it amazing, Joe Lieberman a vp nominee from just 8 years ago, now endorsing the Republican ticket. Goes to show you where the lefties have taken the Democratic Party. Thats why there is an organization, not insignificant, Democrats for McCain.
I also heard every word of Thompsons testimonial of McCain's experiences, and needless to say even though hearing some of it before, I was impressed. It was more powerful by the fact that Thompson was not complementing McCain out of obligation, but because every bone in his body believed it.
One other thing I noticed, the terminology, "liberal media" and "angry left," are now making their way into the mainstream conservative sphere as very obvious and established problems in America today.
