Lots A Folks Watched Moose-Girl On Teh TeeVee

Sarah Palin's speech generated 37.2 million viewers, just a 1.1 million viewers short of Barack Obama's record-breaking speech on Day 4 of the Democratic Convention. More impressive was that Palin's speech was carried on only six networks while the Obama speech was carried on ten (including BET, TV One, Univision and Telemundo).
America got a good look at the purty ladee the GOP put on display, and can judge for themselves the stark differences in vision and approach between Barack and SaraCudda.

Those who care and those who were just curious about all the hub-bub saw for themselves the contrasting tone, the degrees of respect, gravitas and realistic proposals each of these competing self-described reformers bring to the table they say they know how to reach across.

I know what I thought, which should be no surprise to anyone. I know you can't get anything done, reach consensus or move an agenda by spitting in the eye of the people you must work with. If by some strange alignment in the heavens (or Diebold algorithms) McCain and Palin reach the White House only to face engaging a Democratic controlled Congress, there'll be a whole lot a pissed off legislators who really won't wanna hear your quaint platitudes, insults and smug attitude when discussing how to fix an economy that lost another 33,000 jobs in August -- something addressed in detail by the Democrats and completely absent in three days of GOP fanfare.

Oh, BTW. Cindy McCain's dress Tuesday cost as much as the average unwed working mom without a high school diploma can earn in a decade -- unless she lives in the Governor's mansion. Out. Of. Touch. Much?

Hard to call some one "uppity" when you wear a $300,000 stepford wife dress with Barbie tendencies!

Very nice post Mark!
