Oh my goodness...I swear I have never been so jazzed before. I promise I won't blog too much about politics because that isn't what this blog is for. But I really haven't ever been this engaged. So I'm just typing as the speaches go on...random thoughts and such. Feel free to disagree or to give your views if you watched. :)

Watching Rudy Gulianni speak at the Republican Convention - I was laughing my bootie off! (oh how I wish that were literally true!) He gave the Messiah quite a shellacking. The "community organizer" line was hilarious.

Now Sarah herself is up and the applause, yelling, screaming, and cheering seemed to be never ending. She is looking RIGHT into the camera. Like she has no notes. I realize there's teleprompters but she's very natural (we know how bad Bush is at using teleprompters and McCain isn't all that much better).

She's talking about McCain...bla bla bla. We want to hear about her! Her son deploys soon to Iraq. Good for him and God Speed! He's 19 and deploys on 9/11. Wow. I hope that my future children decide to serve our country.

What weird names her kids have...but OMG the little girl is freaking ADORABLE. She just waved at the crowd like a pro. And their youngest, Trig, is just sleeping away. I don't see how any baby can sleep through all that noise.

She's talking about how every family has challenges and ups and downs - boy ain't that the truth. We all think our own families are the "crazy" ones. lol At least I do!

Oh man..."a friend and advocate in the white house" for special needs children and people. That makes me choke up.

Her hubby Todd is a "real" man...a manly man. World champion snowmachine racer. Didn't know there was such a thing. lol He's also an Inuit Eskimo. And cute! lol Very cute. Two decades later he's "still her guy." lol

Lesson learned from her parents..."This is America and every woman can walk through every door of opportunity" - hey...that's what my mom (and dad) taught me. "We grow good people in our small towns." Oh hell yes we do. My mom and dad were both from a super small town. So are my grandpa and grandma.

{one thing I noticed ... at the Democratic convention they chanted "Obama" "Obama" "Obama" ... at the Republican convention they are chanting "USA" "USA" "USA" ... just a note ... yes they did chant "Sarah" "Sarah" a few times but way more "USA".}

Cute joke..."difference between a Hockey mom and a Pit Bull? Lipstick." *grin*

Explaining to the opponents what being a mayor of a small town is about. ROFL hahahahahaha "sort of like a community organizer, except you have actual responsibilities" *giggle* Love it!

Man...I want to work for her...though she's probably a beeyotch to work for. I've worked for women like her and they totally rock but they run you ragged. :)

Oh...I love her necklace. I could have made it. hahahaha

WOOT! She's not going to Washington to seek the good opinion of the commentators and news people. She's going to Washington to serve the people! WOOT! You go girl!!!

Govern with a servant's heart - oh hell yes. I love that. One of my good dear friends has a wonderful servant's heart and I often have to be reminded to keep that heart in front.

I love her hair...I wish I could get mine to do that. :) Then again, I'm guessing she didn't do it herself.

Got rid of the luxury jet - it was over the top. She put it on Ebay. ROFL The crow LOVES it. She drives herself to work. No personal chef. Though the kids sure sometimes miss her. OMG a close up of her youngest daughter with her new son. PRECIOUS!

Power of the Veto works! Alaska now has a surplus. She vetoed nearly 1/2 B $ in wasteful spending. Returned competition and fairness - breaking the big oil monopoly. Energy independence - new natural gas line started.

bla bla bla ... energy independence ... I agree we need to drill.

Booya! "A man who has authored two major memoirs but not a single law or reform." Facts are sticky things. "A man who can give an entire speach about the wars this country is fighting and never use the word victory...except when he's talking about his own campaign."

Lots of giggling about the Greek columns.

Ouch...What are O's plans (after he's healed the waters and planet)? hahahaha

O's "fine print" will raise taxes of all sorts and increase the tax burden of all Americans. Not just the "rich" ones. DVR is set to record Bones and America's Next Top Model...see that's how much I watch the news. ROFL :) So I guess I'll have to catch ANTM on rerun. They usually replay it on Saturdays.

Okay...back to the speach. "McCain not looking for a fight, but sure isn't afraid of one." *grin*

Harry Reid "majority of the "do nothing" Senate" said "I can't stand John McCain" which is proof that we've chosen the right man. *snort* That's funny. Oh but even better "clearly he meant that he can't stand up to his level" niicee.

Boy she is NOT holding back. "the journey to the white house is not supposed to be a journey of personal discovery" She is hitting hard. "There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you."

Beautiful! I so admire all the hard working men and women of our brave military services. That is a strong line.

Shoot...I missed whatever she said that made the older guy up front tear up. I think maybe he was in Hanoi with McCain.

I get it ... McCain is a good guy. I agree. But I'm getting bored. Although she is an excellent speaker.

Thank you and God Bless America.


Does anyone else feel like she's the one running for President? ha! I hope to see her run in the future. I'd totally volunteer for that campaign. She looks great - poised. Not nervous at all. She is tough! Oh and here comes her family. Good grief they are cute.. Oh Trig is so sweet. I LOVE seeing a mom on the stage.

And now the nominee himself joins her on stage. She didn't look all that comfy hugging him. Ha! Funny. She is very presidential. Okay crowd...shut up.

"Don't you think we made the right choice for the next VP of the United States?"

Oh hell yes I do! I can't imagine the crowd being this excited for ANYONE else. No way would they be this worked up.

Did I mention how frickin' adorable her youngest girl is?!? She looks like she's having a blast - waving at the crowd like a pro. hahahahaha If I were her I'd be peeing my pants. =)

Time for ANTM! :)

I take personal offense to the comments about community organizers. I do it for a living and I assure you, there is plenty of responsibility to go around. To say otherwise is an enormous insult. We’ll show Miss Palin what community organizing can do.

I also found her sarcasm to be rather over the top and unneeded. I was looking for someone that I thought I could be okay with leading this country in case Obama does lose, but instead I found what appears to be a snake just waiting to wrap herself around this country and squeeze the rest of the life out of it. Her speech only reinvigorated me to work harder to ensure she does not get into the White House.

I find it rather interesting right now that any woman would be supporting the McCain ticket since it is clear that it is going to have a pretty negative impact on woman’s right as a whole. No More Choice, No More Birth Control, Never Equal pay, no investing into sex education to help reduce the rates of unwanted pregnancy, let alone investing into woman's health resources. Talk about cutting off your own hands.

Being a mayor of a small town that is your own home town is not really an impressive feat to me either. Selling a plane on ebay does not impress me.

They chanted a lot more than just “Obama” at the democratic convention. The difference is, this is a candidate that unites the people, has HUGE masses of people who work together on common goals. But you know, that community organizing thing is surely something to joke about. You’ll see.

You missed the part about them chanting “Drill Baby Drill” when you posted. They chanted that as much, if not more than “USA.” For your information the USA only has 3% of the world’s Oil Reserve and we use 25% of the world’s oil. That means it is impossible to be independent of foreign oil.

By your comments of them chanting USA, are you implying that those of us who support Obama are not patriotic? Cause I certainly would beg to differ.

Your cynical sarcasm on Obama being the Messiah is overdone too.

Her speech rocked too. Excellent choice on McCain's part. :)

Oh lindy lindy lindy...whereh to start.

What exactly does a "community organizer" do for a living? Obama certainly didn't accomplish anything that he can point to that is concrete.

I love sarcasm...being a sarcastic person myself. Her speech only invigorated those of us who were pretty underwhelmed by the McCain campaign to work 110x as hard to get him elected.

A snake? how do you figure??? The hysterical cries of "no more choice, no more birth control" are so out of focus with reality as to be mental. You seriously SERIOUSLY believe that the second the GOP ticket wins that all of a sudden abortion will be outlawed? Give me a break. If you believe that then you clearly do not understand our political system as well as you think you do. Equal Pay? WTH? I have equal pay with men. As do most women who don't take time off work for maternity leave. I don't vote for a person based solely on their views on abortion as I don't really think that is the number one issue for women. There are a lot more women out there supporting Palin than you might imagine based on your clearly radical feminist views.

I actually did hear the "drill baby drill" and I totally agree. DRILL NOW!

And she wasn't *just* a small town mayor - but even if that is all she ever has done it is more of an accomplishment than a "community organizer" (whatever the hell that is). Obama has never had any executive experience in his entire life! Running a presidential campaign certainly is the closest he's ever come.

I have never questioned Obama supporters patriotism ... well, that's not entirely true. Bill Ayers certainly HATES America and wants to see it brought down. But I'd expect nothing less from a domestic terrorist. Sad company to keep for a potential president. If you're judged by the company you keep I'd rather have a small town mayor, moose hunting, basket ball playing, hockey mom on my side.

This is the best conservatives could muster up in picking a #2? Come on people. I've never bought a copy of the National Enquirer. I've always thought they engaged in yellow journalism, sort of, for lack of a better term, the 'Fox News of print reporting.' But folks, we're in a campaign where the Republicans are wallowing in lies and fantasies and salacious emails. The stakes, in my mind, are too great not to do something. I figure by exposing all of you to this, I'm just doing my part. And, you know what, I doubt these are lies. The stakes for the Enquirer would be just too high for them to have made this up. For my Republican friends on my distribution list, it is my absolute intention to make you uncomfortable. Perhaps Palin, as she assures us, is ready to be President. She apparently was NEVER prepared for parenting. In South Georgia, we call folks like this 'trailer trash.'

With the National Enquirer's newfound credibility after the John Edwards affair, many are looking with interest to their expose' of Sarah Palin. According to the story, Palin's son Track, the Iraq-bound patriot, is a mainlining drug addict (Oxycontin!) who used to break into cars. And preggers Bristol was quite the out of control party girl herself. Here goes:
The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that Sarah's oldest son, Track, was addicted to the power drug Oxycontin for nearly the past two years, snorting it, eating it, smoking it and even injecting it. And as Track, 19, heads to Iraq as part of the U.S. armed forces, Sarah and her husband Todd were powerless to stop his wild antics.

And as Gov. Palin has billed the state of Alaska for various expenses related to her children, as reported by The Washington Post, The ENQUIRER's investigation reveals that she was so incensed by 17-year-old Bristol's pregnancy that she banished her daughter from the house.

Another family friend revealed pre-prego Bristol was as much of a hard partier as Track was. 'Bristol was a huge stoner and drinker. I’ve seen her smoke pot and get drunk and make out with so many guys. All the guys would brag that the just made out with Bristol.”
From the print edition, here are some quotes from Track's friends.
• 'Before joining the Army last September, Track partied all the time. I saw him do so many keg stands, and all he ever talked about was getting stoned.'
• 'Track was a master at playing people and paying them to get drugs, alcohol, steal car rims, Xbox games, you name it.'
• 'All the girls loved Track, but he was more into drugs and himself. He used his local celebrity status with the other guys to get them to steal things he wanted.'
• 'I've partied with Track for years. I've seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed. OxyContin was definitely his drug of choice.'
• Track was a full-on OxyContin addict in 2006 and 2007, the Enquirer says, and was mainlining the drug. Which is very bad.
• 'I've smoked weed with Track many times. He was one of two kids in school that had a fake ID.'
A commenter notes, 'It's a sad, sad day when the Enquirer is the most hard hitting reporter in the nation.' As for Track, he sounds pretty much like the typical drug-damaged teen who gets sent into the Army to get straightened out. Only this teen's mother is being heralded as the ultimate role model for American families.

You be the judge. What does this say to you about John McCain. He had six months to pick a running mate. He spoke to this trixie for fifteen minutes.

Get your bibles out and start praying. God Bless the USA!
