Tonight at the convention pretty much made me pee my pants with glee.
*The video about Michael Monsoor made me pretty much lose it. You too? I didn’t figure I was alone. Beautiful tribute, thank you, Gary Sinise.
*How hot does the First Lady look tonight? Man. She’s gotten even more beautiful over the years. And what a speech. We couldn’t have asked for a better First Lady. Full of class.
*President Bush’s speech is excellent.
*FRED! speaks next. Holy cow, the dude is on FIRE. I’ve never seen him with so much energy. Who gave him a six pack of Red Bull? At his age, that can’t be good for his heart. This speech is so full of red meat I’m getting cholesterol.
*LOL. Did y’all see when Fred mentioned the McCains’ kids, Cindy turned around and told one of her adult sons to wave? It was so cute. Such a mom.
*FRED! Yeah, Fred kicked pinkytoe hard. In particular Obama’s pinkytoe. I loved those sharp barbs he threw out there. And also the mega-support for Sarah Palin.
*Joe Lieberman’s speech was good, too. But I felt for him, having to follow such a bleeding red, meaty speech from Fred. I don’t agree with all of Joe’s points and opinions, but I respect that man more than most in Congress, including most Republicans. He has his principles, he stands by them, even when it means being ostracized by his party.
*Did anyone else have issues with Fox’s feed? By the time Brit Hume came on to talk about Fred’s speech, we were sure that Max Headroom was doing the talking.
*Newt is as in to Sarah Palin as I am. And he’s right: Tomorrow night, if she even gets on base, she’s hit a homerun. Personally, I think she’s going to nail her speech. I’m not the slightest bit worried. She’s gonna rock America’s sox. You watch.
One more thing. I have to admit that even if McCain hadn’t picked Palin to be his running mate, I would have been happier about voting for McCain after tonight’s speeches, especially Fred’s. Of course, having Sarah on the ticket makes me cautiously gleeful.
