With such a staunch "Family Values" mom in the race this is not going to be a boring final two months
Ms. Palin's distortion laden screech on stage did nothing to clarify in what ways or how the GOP Plutocrats intend to actually help working class Americans but she proves a powerful Rovian performer.
As a side note, I was betting on - and I won - that Rudy Guliani would not be able to make it through a speech without at least one mention of New York and Nine-Eleven. I was not disappointed. Having a urban, patrician pro-abortion, pro-gay rights, anti Second Amendment kind of guy doing the intro for Ms. abstinence now was curious however.
She sure sounded like the typical ReThuglican corporate whore that I'me accustomed to hearing from Washington, however. And all that crap about raising taxes on Joe and Jane America, what a bunch of hooey! Watching multi-millionairess Cindy McCain gloating smile made it clear, however, that she did her run for the Gipper, you betcha!
And having two multi-millionaire corporate ladies [one, we should remember, knowingly compromised release of sensitive information about people so blatently that she was ousted as HP's CEO] only made my cynicism temperature rise even higher.
And the blatant pandering to the hapless evnagelicals - not the James Dobsons, but the men and ladies who scrimp and save to give their tithes to that ilk - was so, so lame, but not unexpected.
