AP: Stayin' on Top of the Important News | Main | Joe Biden: Barack Obama May Pursue Criminal Charges Against Bush if Elected
September 03, 2008

Speech Reactions

The MSM's and yours.

MSM Talking Point: Repeated endlessly, "Someone wrote her speech!"

Someone wrote Obambi's speech, too, Hoss. Didn't see you pointing that out then.

Britt Hume directly challenged Nina Eaton and Mort Kondracke on their repetition of this mantra.

OOOOH!!! Obama's statement says in the first paragraph she delivered the speech well, but it was written by George Bush's old speechwriter -- Gee, I wonder if that's why Mort and Nina and everyone at MSNBC were already repeating that line?

Ya think?

Hey, MSM: Your lines were written by Barack Obama's spokesman.

Am I lying?

BROKAW: Is explaining to Keith Olbermann what just ran over him.

"Well, as we've all been saying, or at least I've been saying, this is a very competent woman..."

Or words to that effect at the end. The point is Brokaw had to correct "we" to "I" as he realized that the people he's talking to have done nothing but belittle Palin since she was announced.

TNR: A "focus group" -- really just the guy sitting around with some moderate friends as well as liberal friends -- concludes Palin's speech was "alarmingly" strong.

Several moderate-Democrat friends of mine have been emailing--few if any would ever vote for McCain--but all agree that Palin was very strong. The more liberal among them are a little panicked.

I completely misjudged how negative she would be. Her lines about Obama were brutally cutting and possibly over the top in places. But she's a far better messenger than an angry white man.

That's Michael Crowley, who's an asshole, but I forget why.

Eh. What's it matter.

Thanks to Allah for that.

Another review: Marchand Chronicles:

Sarah Palin: Roland Martin

Barack Obama: Donut

Childless Bachelor Mark Shields... who just insulted Palin as a cruel mother for subjecting Bristol to the hate and slander that he personally woud visit on her, said that her line about the Presidency not being a journey of personal discovery "belittled" Obama.

And he meant that in a bad way.

Andi's Freak-Blog: Like a live-blog, except he's freaking over what just happened.

After pushing a grotesque gothic conspiracy theory of changeling babies and faked pregnancies all weekend, he actually has the fucking stones to commit these words to pixels:

"10.40 pm. We've just seen a picture of a seven year old cradling and stroking the hair of a Down Syndrome infant. This, apparently, is relevant to deciding who should be the next vice-president of the United States."

Thanks again to Allah.

Boy, back in the day, when Allah didn't have to be respectable, and when I could spend all day on Sullivan, I tells ya, man did we have a nice little high-low thing going on this goof...
