I'm curious how this "rally the base" strategery will play in a Republican party at a low ebb in party identification. I don't think the same strategy will work in 2008 as it did in 2000 or 04.

Also a little confused on her super ninja abilities- is both catnip for the base and a secret weapon to get independent voters?

My independent, conservative leaning mother strongly disliked her speech. My conservative father thought she was a good speaker but that the speech was forgettable and average.

I'm afraid it was quite a good speech and one that will win the hearts of many independents, mom's and small town American's.
well said.

actually obama is only half the man she is.

She was extremely empty and partisan. Shockingly so.

We obviously didn't watch the same speech.

Why use her son as an appeal to parents of kids with special needs?

This is the line that almost made me retch. There's something there bothering me big time that I just can't put my finger on yet.

So let me get this straight:
hockey mom = qualified to run stuff
community organizer = irresponsible boob

My name has appeared in the local newspaper more than once, followed by community activist.

I know many community activist and organizers.

Not me or any of them ever thought we were preparing to be POTUS.

I'm talking about the whole night, not just one speech. Palin's speech spent too much time on her family and not enough time on her, and yes, there was too much mockery.

But the most disgusting mockery was easily Guiliani's speech. He is dispicable. As is Romney.

I'd never vote for Huckabee, but at least the man made an attempt at respecting the other side and having a little class.

If your Mother is "conservative leaning" then why on earth did she not like this speech??????? Hey, it wasn't "I Have a Dream" but there was absolutely nothing in it that should have anyone claiming to be "conservative leaning" disliking it.
