Sarah Palin Delivers VP Acceptance Speech With Aplomb

Gov. Sarah Palin delivered a historic speech tonight addressing the GOP as Sen. John McCain’s VP nominee. Anyone who watched her tonight wondering if she was qualified for the job had to give her kudos for her poised delivery, her dead-on attacks on Obama, her tenacity, and her political savvy. She pitched a shut out. She did exactly what she had to do — define herself, show support for McCain, and above all attack Obama, like a good VP would.

Her speech has been transcribed at the Chicago Sun Times, but here’s one of her best throws to Obama:

I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.

Or, this one:

But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot—what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world.

Hat tip Powerlineblog trio for blogging live during the speech. They have not been particularly supportive of Palin, but I think they were pleasantly surprised tonight. I know I was. This presidential race just got interesting.
