A whole lot of low-class oral flatulence.
This article sums up my thoughts on the much anticipated Palin speech.
Yes, it was a great speech politically, and a great night for her family, but an empty speech for America — and for America’s families. It was defined by its lowest moment, Palin’s shameless lie about “the Bridge to Nowhere.”
And empty too for the millions around the world whose countries and economies, while they are not in or from America, are affected by every single foreign policy miss-step the U.S. makes.
It was a Speech to Nowhere because…well, I urge everyone to read the text, without Palin’s sharp delivery or her adoring fans in the crowd and in the press box, and tell me where there is any kind of policy at all — except for the short boilerplate passage on energy — or any mention of the issues that concern everyday Americans, including the No. 1 issue of the economy.
I hope America wakes up tomorrow and realizes that Sarah Palin’s words were rousing — and completely empty, that they offered no road map (let alone bridge) for America other than more of the bogus partisan name-calling that has gotten us into the mess that we’re in now.
On a totally superficial and irrelevant note, it’s getting on my nerves that both Sarah and Todd Palin seem incapable of holding their 4-month old son, preferring to palm him off constantly onto their
babysitters other kids, except for the occasional photo-op. Grr….
