And the Winner IS...

If you haven't been watching the RNC, you totally missed it last night.  I mean really.  If I had been a Democrat last night after watching the many speakers, I would have changed parties this morning.  No one beat around the bush or tried to say what they really felt in a way that they thought would sound appealing to everyone or wouldn't be offensive to anyone.  They just said it.  Period.  I loved it.  And I LOVED Sarah Palin.  She looked like she had been speaking in those settings for her whole life.  Completely comfortable.  And she didn't pull any punches either.  She just told it like it was.  You could either like it or lump it.  It was great.  I just kept trying to imagine what it must feel like to be in that place at a time like that.  But I couldn't even imagine.  So, just in my personal opinion, if I was concerned before about who was gonna win, after last night I'm not really that worried anymore.  I'm not saying it still won't be a fight or won't get ugly, and absolutely we still need to get out and vote like nobodies  business, but if this had been a competition between the two...hands down, the Republicans won.

Sis and I have been talking about it all day back and forth. Joel and I about a month ago felt such an urgancy to watch the campain trail. Last week we watched the DNC (we just wanted knowledge). We planned for last night with cheese and grapes and crackers(like some movie date night) we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. We are looking so forward to it tonight also! I told Joel, "I want to be Sarah Palin!" What an absolute breath of fresh air. Joel also said that yesterday in the office all the wemon were so put out over the attacks of her family that they were up front in saying that they may be democrates, but they were voting for the R's!! Yeah God! Anyway, we are so tired cause we are up late every night, but it has been worth every yawn the next day!

complete and total agreement. just put her on the ticket for everything and lets just let her run everything. mccains so old theres a good chance she might make it to the top anyway :-) ok that may have been bad but...at least he seems like a straight shooter. so what if he wasn't my first choice, he's the ONLY choice now, especially with Palin on the ticket. the only downside i see to tonight is that she isn't speaking :-)
