Ann Coulter writes over at Townhall:
Then they attacked her daughter, who actually is pregnant now, for being unmarried. When liberals start acting like they're opposed to pre-marital sex and mothers having careers, you know McCain's vice presidential choice has knocked them back on their heels.Read the rest here.
Fred Thompson and Joe Lieberman were terrific Tuesday night-- One could hear a pin drop in that hall as Mr. Thompson spoke of what Senator McCain had to endure while in a prison camp. Senator Lieberman spoke directly to the Democrats inviting them to vote for this man. Tuesday night was about Senator McCain's character... his courage... his convictions...
Then last night... oh last night... Michael Steele, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee threw their support behind Senator McCain. Governor Romney was ok. He was not up to par last night, although he did say this:
Liberals would replace opportunity with dependency on government largesse. They grow government and raise taxes to put more people on Medicaid, to take work requirements out of welfare, and to grow the ranks of those who pay no taxes at all. Dependency is death to initiative, risk-taking and opportunity.
It is time to stop the spread of government dependency to fight it like the poison it is!
It's time for the party of big ideas, not the party of Big Brother!
and Governor Mike Huckabee, never someone I was crazy about said this:
Centralized governments may care for you from cradle to grave, but they also control you. Most Americans don't want MORE government -- they want a lot less.
Abraham Lincoln reminded us that a government that can do everything FOR
us can also take everything FROM us.
and then came the former Mayor of New York City--- so many memorable comments.. but this... this captured his moment:
On the other hand, you have a resume from a gifted man with an Ivy League education. He worked as a community organizer, and immersed himself in Chicago machine politics. Then he ran for the state legislature - where nearly 130 times he was unable to make a decision yes or no. He simply voted "present."
As Mayor of New York City, I never got a chance to vote "present." And you know, when you're President of the United States, you can't just vote "present." You must make decisions.
A few years later, he ran for the U.S. Senate. He won and has spent most of his time as a "celebrity senator." No leadership or major legislation to speak of. His rise is remarkable in its own right - it's the kind of thing that could happen only in America. But he's never run a city, never run a state, never run a business.
He's never had to lead people in crisis.
This is not a personal attack ... .it's a statement of fact - Barack Obama has never led anything.
The choice in this election comes down to substance over style. John has been tested. Barack Obama has not.
and then... OUR GIRL--- Governor Sarah Palin took the stage... Rudy was a tough act to follow.. but she did it... from beginning to end... she captured my heart. Scooter Trash hubby and I were cheering and applauding and high fiving during her speech as if we were watching some sporting event where our hometown team is winning (being that we are in Cincinnati-- you know THAT rarely happens). She was wonderful... she IS the American dream personified. She IS OUR GIRL.
When the cameras focused on her family as she spoke--- her youngest daughter Piper (I believe) holding Sarah and Todd's infant son Trig... licking her hand and smoothing the baby's hair... Freaking priceless..
I would imagine at worst Alaska tourism will be on the rise... at best we will have John McCain as President and Sarah Palin as our FIRST woman Vice President.
So, let me pile on-- I would like to sincerely thank the LIBERAL media--- in particular MSNBC, NBC, and CBS for uniting our BIG WIDE DIVERSE PARTY. Thank you for being the hypocrites... Thanks for reading Daily Kos and doing all that fact finding "proper journalists" are supposed to do...You folks are so entrenched and so desperately want your fella to win--- you have no idea what unbiased reporting is. Sure... you throw us a couple of bones... Joe Scarborough on MSNBC... Bill Bennett on CNN... yeah... 5 to 1 seems like a fair fight.. (in Bill's case- it is) SO--- Thank you LIBERAL MEDIA! WE have found our candidate because of you-- and Conservatives, Libertarians, and Republicans have found the winning ticket.
