YouTube - Convention Night

Does anyone else find his "perfect" comment to be a bit insincere?

I mean he probably means what he says, but the tone of it suggests that he's also implying something else.

I don't find it insincere, though I don't like when he's done with his congratulatory comment, his face is shown with the 'I'm John McCain and I approve this message'.

I thought that too. I walked in during the middle of the story on the news and had no idea the story behind it, or that it was even an ad. I just thought, Why does it sound like he's mocking Obama's nomination being on this day? When I heard the whole story, I thought it showed class, though.

More people watched Obama speak than watched the Olympics opening ceremony in Beijing, the final "American Idol" or the Academy Awards this year.

So he picked her so a bunch of people would talk about it and forget about Obama's speech? So that's why he didn't go with Romney?

That's the attention span of the media and the American public-has little to do with picking Sarah Palin

Country first, guyz!!! That's why he chose someone who's never debated, campaigned or been involved with national politics on any level.

it may have little to do with the picking of Palin, but it had everything to do with the timing of the announcement, as well as the many red herrings over the past week.
