I'm having a case of Palin fatigue, but I have to watch her in a few minutes, even after reading the excerps. This AM I turned on my browser to no new scandals, and this evening only another boring family thing about her, her husband and a former business partner and freind of her husband's. Yawn. She's supposed to be a great speaker so maybe I'll be happily suprised.
When watching a political speach I'm able to turn off my partisan brain and just listen. I don't listen to what is being said but how. I try to place myself inside the head of the intended audience. People say GW is a bad speaker, I disagree. Try listening to him as if you just got off a shift down at the sugar processing plant and you've already chugged a couple Lone Stars and a shot. I intend to listen to Ms Palin similarly. For this convention I'll imagine I'm a member of the flat earth caucus, or maybe one of her sucsessionist freinds.
Peggy Newnan's off the air remarks are telling. Especially since they are opposite to what she says in her WSJ piece today. McCain has been ducking out of scheduled interviews, Palin has been in seclusion, are they ever going to let her answer a question from a reporter? Wonder what she thinks of increased regulation by the Securities and Exchange Commision or the proposed entry of Ukrain into Nato.
Gota go and watch Huckabee, always my favorite from the debates.
