7:15 I actually like Romney.
7:25 Where do the Republicans get off suggesting that the media are McCain's enemies?
7:28 Romney just said that Obama on his first day would have less experience than Palin would after years if, God forbid, McCain died in office. Uh, duh. This was the guy I was just thinking I liked?
7:30 Changed my mind. Huckabee just said that the last few days have been tackier than backstage at a Madonna concert. I like Huckabee. He makes me laugh.
7:33 "Americans want less government." And the crowd goes wild.
7:36 "Sarah Palin got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States." Hmmm. That doesn't sound right to me.
7:42 "Thank you. God bless you folks." I like the word "folks". I use it as much as possible.
7:52 A talking head just called Huckabee "quality sirloin". HAHAHAHAHA.
7:54 Found one piece of the math problem above: Sarah Palin was elected mayor of Wasilla, Alaska in 1999 with 909 votes. Back in a moment. The talking heads are saying that my man John McCain is trying to "fortify the base".
7:58 Not to call Huckabee a liar, but Biden got 2,328 votes in Iowa before he dropped out. That's more than 909 votes. Huck, that's not cool. If you think your candidate has experience, say so and give some real examples. You don't have to lie.
8:03 RU-DY! RU-DY!
8:06 Actually, any of these old white guys would have been qualified to be veep.
8:07 I agree with Rudy. John McCain has been tested again and again and has passed the test. He is a true American hero. He IS the most experienced candidate.
8:10 Rudy, you were a mayor, and so was Ms. Palin. Yes, that's true.
8:12 "Obama's never had to lead people in crisis...he has never led anything. Nothing. Nada." I was about to agree, and then Rudy had to keep talking. I am totally on board with the whole "he's never been a top elected official" thing. It's a legitimate criticism. Spending a significant amount of time as the leader of a very large state (or city, in Mr. Giuliani's case) could give a person the experience he or she needs to be president. Obama does NOT have that experience. I'm not sure it's fair to say he's never led ANYTHING, though.
8:16 Poor Bristol Palin looks so nonplussed. Someone take the camera off her.
8:23 I think Rudy just called Obama a flip-flopper.
8:25 Rudy's saying that Wasilla isn't flashy or cosmopolitan enough for Obama. Now that's a low blow. I don't think Obama's ever said anything that even hinted at that.
8:30 RU-DY! RU-DY!
8:32 Steve says she looks like a naughty schoolteacher. I, of course, am offended by this sexist observation.
8:36 I really wish this was one of the introductory speeches. I would have been thrilled to see Sarah Palin as an up-and-comer.
8:39 She really does have a cute little girl.
8:41 I like the shout-out to families with special needs. They really do need a friend and advocate in the White House.
8:44 The little girl is licking her hand and fixing her baby brother's hair. Very cute. Meanwhile, Ms. Palin is saying that being a small-town mayor is sort of like being a community organizer, only with responsibilities. Not so cute. She says John McCain is the same man, no matter where he goes. I do believe that.
8:47 Apparently the media consider people unqualified if they are not part of the Washington elite. Ms. Palin says it, so it must be true. News flash, Ms. Palin: You are unqualified, and it has nothing to do with your experience in Washington. Please come back next time. I mean it. I'd love to see how you grow. In four years, you might be ready.
8:51 Did she really put the jet on eBay? I like that.
8:52 DO NOT MENTION THE BRIDGE TO NOWHERE. YOU KEPT THAT MONEY FOR OTHER PROJECTS. ARE YOU PLANNING TO MENTION THAT?
8:58 I love it. She's going to talk about lack of experience. Oh...wait. She's talking about someone who actually has more experience than she does. Carry on.
8:59 I think the RNC is against rights for prisoners. They're standing up and cheering her quip about reading people their rights. I need to know more. Which rights are they against?
9:07 "He would bring the special confidence of those who have seen evil and seen how evil is overcome."
9:08 They're applauding for a vet who was a POW with McCain. He's saluting them.
9:10 "Thank you and Allahu Akbar!" HAHAHAHAHA. Just joking.
9:12 It's him!
9:13 "Doncha think we made the right choice for vice president of the United States?" Sorry. I don't. I like you, though.
