Sarah Palin didn’t use a teleprompter last night in her 40 minute keynote address at the Tea Party convention in Nashville. She doesn’t need one even in a speech she knows is televised nationally on C-Span.
A always lively exchange can be found at Just One Minute. I posted these comments earlier with respect to Palin:
I believe that it’s time we started to put an end to the idea that Palin is inexperienced.
Closer to the truth is the idea that she was more experienced than was McCain, Obama and Biden. She was the only one who had executive experience as govenor of a state. She’d run a large state agency. She’d been a successful local public servant as a school board member and mayor. An unlike any of the others she really does know what it’s like to run a small business – the family fishing business.
Much was made of the Obama judgement. Bill Bradley ran that up the flag pole when he endorsed him. Clearly his judgement is faulty unless it’s taking actions that have anything to do with his own dangerous ideologies. Judgement – which comes after wisdom – is gained through experience. This our president had very, very little.
Aside that is from associations with anti-American leftists, stuffy Harvard faculty types and organizing a corrupt agency. No, Obama has lived a life – as Krauthammer insightfully pointed out – a life of simple adulation.
Not only is his ideology a danger to America, but so is his lack of experience in making decisions. It should be of greatest concern to the nation that he surrounds himself with sycophants in the inner circle.
Palin is the antithesis to everything that is Obama and the extreme left wing of his party. While attempts to demonize her in some of the most disgustingly unacceptable ways imaginable, she’s evolving in a way those whom demonize her fear most. More than being an effective contrarian voice, she’s becoming a figure – even a symbol- of significance.
Not afraid to be an independent voice among her own party, she has endorsed and will campaign for John McCain against the popular conservative J.D. Hayworth. She’s thrown her support behind Rhan Paul in the Kentucky GOP senate primary against the establishment and Mitch McConnel supported candidate. She will also campaign for Texas Govenor Rick Perry going against the power of the Bush family and Dick Cheney.
She’s also grown and become more polished. In today’s interview with Chris Wallace, she gained the upper hand even when Wallace attempted to dismiss some of her statements. Any attempt by Wallace to get his Katie Couric moment was swatted aside by Palin.
And they sure loved her last night in Nashville.
