Speech Reactions/Convention Round-Up/Countdown to 2012

Let's get this party started.

Must Watch: Keith Olbermann, keepin' it nonpartisan: breathtaking.

The only reason 9/11 is a painful memory to Keith Olbermann is because it hurt his beloved liberal suckers of cock. The rest of us remember it as an attack on America; he remembers it solely as an attack on the political fortunes of the Democratic Party.

Allah tipped this, not as a tip, but because he was so angry.

Keith, maybe you should drink some water so you won't get dehydrated after crying so much.

Like a bitch.


Palin Nielsens Smash: Even bigger ratings than we thought:

Barack Obama apparently isn’t the only “rock star” in presidential politics this year.

After days of intense media coverage about Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s qualifications, more than 40 million Americans tuned in Wednesday to see for themselves what they thought of her.

...

Her poised speech, primarily going after Obama and touting McCain’s case for the presidency, was gushed over by many analysts.

...

Last week, Nielsen said 38.4 million people watched Obama speak at a Denver stadium on the six commercial networks, along with BET, TV One, Univision and Telemundo — four networks that didn’t cover Palin’s speech. PBS added an estimated 4 million to that total.

Nearly 2 million more women were watching Palin than men, Nielsen said.

More: Lots and lots of women viewers.

The Nielsen ratings showed that Palin attracted a huge female audience of 19.5 million women, nearly 5 million larger than the third day of the Democratic convention when Hillary Clinton spoke.

The third day of the GOP gathering also attracted more Hispanic viewers than the third day of the Democratic gathering -- 1.4 million to 1.2 million -- even though Univision and Telemundo did not carry the Palin speech.

Oh, and this moron's still fighting with McCain's Junior Officer:

Sen. Barack Obama ditched his normal languid cool today, punching back at Gov. Sarah Palin as he spoke with reporters in York, Pa, hotly defending his work as a community organizer. He said he assumes Palin "wants to be treated same way guys want to be treated, which means their records are under scrutinty. I've been through this for 19 months. She's been through it, what four days?"

Obama's hackles were clearly raised by Palin's dismissal of his community organizing --a response to his earlier dismissal of her record as a small-town mayor. "Why would that kind of work be ridiculed?" Obama said. "Who are they fighting for?" The idea that community organizing is not relevant to the presidency, he said, just shows why Republicans "are out of touch and don't get it."

The Obama campaign was clearly on the defensive today, acknowledging how appealing Palin came across, and sending out surrogates hitting their talking points that Republicans have spent their time on attacks rather than substance.

Celebrity? An Israeli documentarian visited Alaska to film Palin as he documented amazing women around the world. He became particularly "mesmerized" by Palin.

Think he's cutting that documentary as fast as he can to release it?

Barracuda: Now I wantcha.
