Image descriptionHalfway through Sarah Palin's speech tonight at the RNC, people following the speech noticed she was deviating from the prepared text.
According to sources close to the McCain campaign, the teleprompter continued scrolling during applause breaks. As a result, half way through the speech, the speech had scrolled significantly from where Governor Palin was in the speech. The malfunction also occurred during Rudy Giuliani's speech, explaining his significant deviations from his speech.
Unfazed, Governor Palin continued, from memory, to deliver her speech without the teleprompter cued to the appropriate point in her speech.
Contrast this to Barack Obama who, when last his teleprompter malfunctioned, was left stuttering before a crowd unable to advance his speech until the problem was resolved.
Sarah Palin. Winner.

Don’t know if you watched it, but Palin’s speech was a Grand Slam!
They’ll be lot’s of comments on it in the press and the rest of the media, but I think that she’s Obama’s worst nightmare.  She’s better looking, nicer, more articulate, smarter in a savvy way, funnier, and more deadlier than Hillary…..because she’s authentic.  And because of all those elements, she’ll make John McCain shine more brilliantly than he possibly could with anyone else. 
Peggy Noonan, who has a master's ability to see into the very essential essence of events, has some great comments on her in today’s  WSJ……(once you get past Peggy's mea culpa's regarding her own open-mic faux pas).  Read it here.....

Sarah Palin trashes media at RNC

ST. PAUL - Sarah Palin boasts she can take it - and boy, can she dish it out.
Stung by criticism that her resume is too thin to be Republican John McCain's vice president, and with her growing family under the media microscope, the Alaskagovernor lashed back at the "Washington elite" Wednesday night with an in-your-face defense of her small-town credentials.
"I'm not a member of the permanent political establishment," Palin told the GOPfaithful on Wednesday night in St. Paul.
"And I've learned quickly these past few days that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone."
"But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country," she said, bringing a roar of approval from delegates.  MORE


Palin Defies Critics and Electrifies Party

ST. PAUL — Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska introduced herself to America before a roaring crowd at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night as “just your average hockey mom” who was as qualified as the Democratic nominee, Senator Barack Obama, to be president of the United States.

Gov. Palin Makes Her Case

Palin mounted a vigorous defense of her qualifications for vice president in her Republican convention speech, portraying her small-town experience as an asset, despite a grueling barrage of accusations that she isn't ready for the job.

Focus Turns to Palin's Record

Palin has been embraced by the right and pilloried by the left as a staunch conservative. But a look at her record in Alaska shows a politician more flexible in her ideology as she has juggled the needs of governing.
