A smart take on John McCain’s speech.
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton hopes the Bush administration leaves on a high note. I’m skeptical.
My recent interview with Bolton who talks about Sarah Palin and the world’s hot spots is here.
Arianna Huffington tries to warn the Left and the Obama camp: “Americans love the outsider plucked from obscurity. And Palin provides bucketfuls of the new and exciting. As long as voters and the media are caught up in the latest installment of As Sarah Turns or the Alaska version of All My Children, they aren’t paying attention to the lack of solutions McCain is offering to the serious crises that face us.” She may be right but it’s hard to imagine they will heed her warning: “It’s tempting to prime the Palin attack pump. But Obama and the Democrats do so at their own peril.”
McCain gets better ratings than Barack Obama. The Palin effect?
This is certainly the question of the week. They do seem flummoxed. Claim she is too negative? Argue their Presidential nominee is more qualified than McCain’s VP? Perhaps they could do clever web ads mocking her as a celebrity. Oh, I guess that’s been done.
Could one of those on the chopping block be Section A?
It struck me viewing the Michigan delegation up front on the floor of the RNC that they might like Palin a lot there — blue collar, pro-gun, etc. I was right.
In the hall on Thursday, you could barely hear John McCain. Listening again I agree it does have a Churchillian quality.
And let’s be honest: they were never this excited before Palin.
