Hello Sarah Palin

3 Sep

Gov. Sarah Palin just finished giving her acceptance speech for the VP slot and she was very impressive. We will be breaking this down tomorrow on LFN from 6-9am on 790 KFYO, but I’d like to know what you thought tonight.

Everyone will be saying this tomorrow, but tonight a star was born in the Republican party. She is the GOP’s answer to Barack Obama and that’s exactly what they need. McCain can’t compete with Obama’s star power or his speeches, but as we saw tonight Sarah Palin can.

Palin hit a homerun tonight…a big homerun. She related to the everyday person and she seemed like the mom next door. Even when Palin went on the attack against Obama, she seemed funny and sweet yet strong. Hillary Clinton was attacked many times for being too mean. That won’t happen to Palin. When she attacked Obama, she had a great smile and did it with humor. You didn’t see the attack coming, but what she said still hit home…and I bet it hit the Obama camp.

I did find it interesting that Palin didn’t mention Obama by name tonight at all, she only referred to him as “our opponent”. I guess they didn’t want to give him free mentions. I’m sure we will see a bounce tomorrow for McCain, but unfortunatly McCain speaks tomorrow and we all know that he isn’t the best. I’d rather have Palin speak again.

At the end of the day I still think all Palin does is energize the Conservative base which is important, but I’m not sure she will be able to pick up too many independents. And yes when people vote I do think they will be deciding between McCain and Obama. However, it seems as though the McCain camp wouldn’t mind seeing Palin mix it up with Obama more than McCain.

One last thing before tomorrow. Does anyone else think that McCain and Palin look a bit uncomfortable together on stage? It’s like McCain doesn’t want to get too close.

It wasn’t looking like a great race between Obama and McCain, but now with Palin in the mix…Game on!

    Aside from lies about Obama’s positions and about her own record, I thought it sounded like a speech at a pep rally for vice president of the student council.

    But you’re right – – she’s probably got the conservative base fired up. And good for them — they needed something to get excited about.
