A reader writes, “Don’t overthink it. She absolutely kills. No wonder Democrats curse Republicans as evil geniuses.”
And, to go along with that note, another one (from a lady): “I’m not a feminist, and in fact think most of them are nuts. That said, when Governor Palin walked onto the stage, I teared up. I was surprised by my reaction. I think that’s the reason Governor Palin is up there.”
Another: “I have never been more energized by a national Republican candidate in my life.”
Sarah is real!!! What a fabulous contrast with Obama, who is not real. Sarah is from America. Obama is not.
Sarah gives me hope for America, because of who she is, not because of any group she "represents."
More valuable than pearls is a woman who likes to fish and hunt.
Consider that after last night's extravaganza we are all excitedly discussing the Republican team. That is a political feat of no small significance. Beginning to think the McCain folks can play this game.
Emails like this coming at the rate of roughly one a minute:
Toss me in as another Republican who's ecstatic about this pick and who's writing a check. I teared up as I watched the speech given by Gov. Palin. I haven't been this proud to be a Republican in far too long a time. I am proud we have a bona fide American hero running for president who has the political chops to miraculously energize his base and sucker punch the opposition at the same time.
Unbelievable. Now where's my credit card...

And I just bet twenty bucks that McCain would win. #
