Ad: Alaska Maverick

Ad below the fold, but see this too.

I want Palin to now tout herself and compare her experience, point by point, with Barack Obama's tonight. She almost certainly will not do this, as it's generally the person introducing the speaker who touts her accomplishments, not the speaker herself.

They really ought to change that up. No one will be listening to Palin's introducer. Or not as many. We need Palin to tout herself.

She'll have to disarm the public and let them know she realizes she's being a bit "braggy" but she has no other choice, given the fact her experience has been impugned, and her less-than-one-half-term senator opponent Obama refuses to even recognize her as the serving governor of Alaska.

And then compare. While Palin was exposing corruption in her own party and taking on the political establishment, Barack Obama was making shady deals with Tony Rezko and supporting mobbed-up candidates for state office.

While Palin was taking on oil companies who'd got a too-favorable deal from Alaskan politicians (most likely through corrupt inducements), Barack Obama was voting "Present" 130 times in the state senate to avoid any paper trail on difficult issues.

While Palin was negotiating the largest public infrastructure in American history -- the Alaskan pipeline -- and finalizing the terms of the multibillion dollar international project with representatives of the Canadian state, Obama was being given a made-up committee on European relations, simply to pad his nonexistent foreign policy resume... but he never called the committee into session. (Still lists it on his CV, I bet, though!)

And etc., and etc., and etc.

The main problem here is, again, it seems ungracious. She will put some people off by touting her own accomplishments. But it will be a home run if she does this. She just needs to explain she's as uncomfortable with this as anyone, but what's a gal to do once she's been demeaned?

This Had Better Be Expectations-Reducing! A "preview" of Palin's speech so spectacularly ill-advised I pray to Gaia it's spin and disinformation.
