On Sarah Palin

Barring some truly scandalous information and barring some disaster, if John McCain is elected president, Sarah Palin will be the first female president of our country.

Not only is she an amazing public speaker, but she’s a fighter, she’s smart, and she has a great story. She knows how to deliver a message and she’s relentless.

Every speaker did well tonight--I was surprised by how good Huckabee sounded and Giuliani fed the believers a metric ton of red meat and funny lines--but none of them compared to the excitement generated by a woman the Obama camp would have you believe is a mere hockey mom from a small town in Alaska. The folks on that side of the argument were served a hell of a message tonight: she’s a woman who has made a political career of punching way above what everyone else assumed was her weight, and she’s not done yet.

That was a hell of a speech.

More thoughts from ViewpointJournal.

Patterico, too.

Goldstein’s readers seem to be impressed.

As I said a few days ago: it was a big risk to bring Palin into the McCain campaign and I still don’t know if it will work out in the end. But it is the most exciting thing to happen to a Republican candidate--any Republican candidate--since Reagan. She is injecting life, youth, and a small town, working class spirit into the race. Amazing.

Remember to monitor Founding Bloggers for ongoing posts, video, and great photos. Brilliant stuff.

I think Kate loves Sarah. I don’t blame her.
