Oops. Palin speech as it happens 

The RNC Convention's MC just mispronounced Sarah Palin's last name. Forgivable, nobody had heard of her before last week.

... She sounds like a schoolteacher on South Park. Just saying.

Good Lord! Republicans just cheered for The United Steelworkers' Union.

... The only difference between hockey mom's like me and pit-bulls ... lipstick.

... Community organizers have no responsibilities.

... "I'm not a member of the permanent political establishment" (huge applause) ... Um, like McCain?

... That luxury (governor's) jet, I put it on eBay. McCain's wife can't get around her state without one.

A couple minutes about how Obama will raise taxes ... this from about 10 minutes ago is obviously part of the speech that was written before McCain picked her last week. Republicans are indeed generally intellectually incurious, but I have a hard time believing independents - and most Republicans - will actually believe Obama is going to raise your taxes - unless you bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

... "there is only one man in this campaign who has really fought for you. (applause) ... in places where winning means survival and defeat means death." Uh, you mean to say we WON Vietnam? The Ministry of Truth must start their presses!
