A rich woman wore diamonds and pearls in front of the biggest audience she'll likely ever speak in front of (made up of mostly wealthy people like herself)? How dare she?
And what's up with her hair?
And what's up with Palin's hair?
I like Sarah's hair, in pretty much every shot I've seen. She looks very pretty. I thought Cindy's makeup/style people did a fantastic job, as she looked much prettier last night than she did at lunch. I don't believe Barack Obama would ever stoop to taking pot shots at either lady's appearance. I believe this demonstrates his maturity... and think maybe some more of his fans should consider comparing his behavior to their own.
The National Enquirer type BS about Palin and her family is even more disgusting. The GOP must be thrilled with the idiotic reaction of the Left, as the backlash from this type of childish sniping should prove more compelling than the sniping itself. Palin had every right to lash out at the press for their obscene behavior, and I admire her poise in the face of such asinine attacks.
Pity she chose to lie about other things in the process; but overall I think she has proven herself a compelling force to be reckoned with. I find her FAR more impressive than her resume would suggest.
Obama was the surprising star in the conventions last year. There can be little doubt that title goes to Palin this year. I've heard a few Republicans suggest they'd like to see the ticket inverted. Lefties may find that funny this year; but don't anyone be too shocked if this woman makes a serious run in the not so distant future. Alaska LOVES her. Polls showed AK was firmly in the undecided camp before she was introduced. Look now and you'll see she owns those 3 electoral votes.
I will stop short of giving her credit for "Uniting the Republican Party." There was never any doubt in my mind that Democrats would have no trouble accomplishing that... any more than I thought Democrats would have any trouble uniting behind Obama (save a small handful of idiotic Hill-people... who mostly are acting off some other agenda anyway.)
