Palin Bio Video
— DrewM

This was supposed to be played last night at the convention but Rudy ran long (and I think was worth it).

Speaking of Rudy's speech, it was an ass kicking of historic proportions. If he wasn't followed by Palin, it's all we would be talking about. In case you missed it last night, do yourself a favor and take a look.

1 I'm so gay for Rudy after last night I'm doodling his name on the back of my notebook.

2 I'm glad they left it out.  I thought it made her look so ballsy to just walk out there alone with no introduction.  Also it kept the crowd hyped up after Rudy instead of bringing it down.

3 Fox News showed it today. Did CNN or MSDNC show it?

5 There is an update at HotAir that 2 more of the media "independents" aren't so independenty after all - so that's like 3 out of their 4

7 That not suprising ability to give this speech is one reason I thought earlier that Rudy was going to be the VP nominee.  I didn't support him during the primaries but I would have had no trouble voting for him if he did get the nomination.

Speaking of speeches, did any see Romney give his speech? I was only able to read the transcript. It read good but seemed brief.

10 Rudy's speech had so many "OH SNAP" moments that I think the animated gif Moron Pundit was using wore out.  It was a grand sight to behold.

  They love her in Hillary Land

  "I love, love, love this!! We are going to kick Obama's butt all the way back to Kenya!!!!!!" ...

  Yeah. It's really easy to see now what they were so afraid of. I have to watch that again.....if no other reason but to catch that joke about the greek columns again.

  Follow the link to the discussion on hillaryclintonforum.net. Seriously.

12 All the speeches were good and hammered home the message the RNC wanted. They also built up to Palin nicely.  Rudy was funny and fun. (Can you imagine having to sit through the droning of  John Edwards? And he gets $65k every time he puts an audience to sleep, too.)

13 Rudy really had fun with that speech last night. So did I as a viewer. It was great! And you guys are right, Governor Palin walking on right after Rudy and digging right in really worked. The movie would have been lame.

14 polynikes #9: I saw some of Romney's, but frankly it didn't seem natural -- too much the professional pol, so I was going back and forth to other channels. Huck was better but I still did some surfing. But Rudy, he was a grabber. He was great. He was having a blast. and then -- Babe Ruth came to the plate, and hit one big fat Obama pitch after another out through the rafters.

15 To be honest I thought Rudy got started a little slow. But once he was up to full speed it was awesome.

16 Dkshideler,

Yeah, if you look at the liveblog from last night you can see how we were killing him at the start and then watch the orgasms build to historic levels.

17 I'm glad they skipped this video.  Very glad.  It would have been a momentum-killer after Rudy's massive pwnage - comes off as too parochial my tastes.  Instead, we went instantly from the high of Rudy ladling out chumbuckets full of red meat straight into the continued buzz of Palin emerging on the national stage and knocking the ball out of the park. 

Rudy's avuncularity was the best thing that could have happened to the GOP convention last night.

18 Rudy had me grinning like a comic-book villain whose Evil Plans are finally coming to fruition.  When he said ``Biden better get that VP thing in writing,'' I roared.  And he was smiling the whole time, which made it even better.

Linda Lingle - meh.  Too slow and dull, frankly, though that may have been the fault of the telepormpter.  I was thinking, ``C'mon, gal, quit pausing - every line can't be an applause line for God's sake.'' 

But I agree with Rockmom - having her walk out right after Rudy spoke was the way to go.  And by God is she ballsy.  What's the betting that McCain will start introducing himself as ``Governor Palin's running mate''?

Palin did well enough introducing herself at the beginning of her speech. The video is redundant.

Since Fox just ran it, I guess that means it's not showing at the convention, which is fine by me. Those who want to see it can go online or ask a Republican friend to screen it for them.

Today really should be the McCain-a-thon. Wishing him the best. . .

On NRO they were saying that Romney showed lack of class by sneering at Massachusetts. Don't do that you @#$% sell-out, it's your state.

Belately I have to say, I'm glad he's not the nominee. Imagine if he'd lost and toured Europe talking about how dumb we all are.

God, I can't fucking get one off without bumbling it.

Rudy beat Obama like a redheaded stepchild's rented mule.

23 Probably wasn't worth correcting anyway.

No, no, I actually thought you were going for an 'and' there.

I'm thinking, what the hell did that poor mule do to Rudy? And when was Michelle banging a ginger Scandi?

Darn tootin'. . When they decided to scratch showing the video, they had no idea that it would add tremendously to Palin's impact on the audience. You can't plan these sorts of things. It's almost as if God reached down and provided a little gift of electricity, unasked for...

27 The reax on Palin's speech at that Hillary forum were a thing of beauty. I think McCain's got the disgruntled Hillary supporter vote in the bag.

30 Apparently they're planning on showing the video tonight.  I think that's unnecessary.  I just don't think it's that well put together.  Skip it.

I watched re-runs of the speeches last night after work.  Romney's was completely forgetable.  It wasn't necessarily bad, just dull.  McCain was wise not to have picked him- watching him debate Biden would've been coma inducing.

Hawaii lady sucked.

Lieberman fairly much sucked.

Romney and Huckabee were OK. Decent.

Thompson, and even more so, Guiliani and Palin were excellent.

I think Thompson gets a bronze, of everyone who reiterated McCain's PoW story I think he did it best (and longest).

McCain will probably suck. He's not a good speechifier.

I'm not a fan of Mike Huckabee's, but I thought he really nailed his speech-maybe even more so than Rudy. It was thoughtful, witty, and the story about the veterans and the classroom desks was a killer.

Rudy's speech reminded me of watching Filipino knife fighters; they just slice someone to bloody pieces with the barest effort.

35 I cannot fathom what is going through the minds of the Palin family as they each witness their lives 'packaged' in beautiful video clips prepared by complete strangers -  for an audience consisting of  complete strangers and some acquaintences they didn't likely think to share such details with.  I imagine, just a couple of weeks ago, life was very very different -dare I say, 'normal'  in the Palin household.  May God grant this beautiful family the strength to endure our curiosity and admiration.  If it's any consolation, I am voting for Palin this November.  McCain wasn't my cup of tea . . .and "O" was never an option.  I was planning on staying home on election day.  Sarah Palin changed my mind.
