Sarah Palin just finished her speech. Incredible. Along with the stuff you would expect in a speech like this, an introduction and some nice words about her running mate, she took it straight to Obama and his campaign.
It would have been easy to take lay off Obama, but she didn’t shy away from it at all:
“It’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform, not even in the state Senate,”
“Since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves, I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.”
“What exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make the government bigger and take more of your money.”
And straight to the media –
“Here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”
I am looking forward to the VP debate.
