Because of the relative strengths of their competitors.

McCain is a bad choice in a pool of even worse choices.

Obama is a mediocre choice in a pool of mediocre choices.

Then it should have been a cakewalk for Joe.

I've noticed this pattern in general. Republicans are fine with outlawing, cutting funding, reducing availability, etc. Until they need it. Then the song changes. You can always find exceptions, but it's a general pattern.

I'm not really surprised by anything anymore, after the American public reelected Bush, of all people.

I thought her speech came off as shrill and nasty. And I'd be saying that if she was Obama's VP, too.

My other thought was, at the beginning when she was ticking off the names of her family, how much filler was that to be naming family members and getting applause, when she should have been making a case for herself? I didn't get it.

That's just your joints, there are plenty of OTC vitamin supplements that will help that.

Did Biden do that? Or is that just a special thing women get to do?

Another reason to admire Sarah, she can think on her feet:

BREAKING: Sarah Palin "Winged" Her Speech Because of "Broken" Teleprompter
Posted by: Erick Erickson

Thursday, September 4, 2008 at 01:00AM

66 Comments

Halfway through Sarah Palin's speech tonight at the RNC, people following the speech noticed she was deviating from the prepared text.

According to sources close to the McCain campaign, the teleprompter continued scrolling during applause breaks. As a result, half way through the speech, the speech had scrolled significantly from where Governor Palin was in the speech. The malfunction also occurred during Rudy Giuliani's speech, explaining his significant deviations from his speech.

Unfazed, Governor Palin continued, from memory, to deliver her speech without the teleprompter cued to the appropriate point in her speech.

Contrast this to Barack Obama who, when last his teleprompter malfunctioned, was left stuttering before a crowd unable to advance his speech until the problem was resolved.

Sarah Palin. Winner.
