UPDATED UPDATE! ZOGBY- McCain Opens Up a 4 POINT LEAD OORAH!
It is also being reported that McCain had a bigger audience than Obama and McCain was up against a football game which also means that he had less networks covering him. HOOAH!
The left wing media did us an enormous service by attempting to destroy mom and apple pie. I called it here.
I said in my previous post, "The upside of this media firestorm is I believe so many people watched her speech that wouldn't have without the media madness which is a great thing".
Well, Atlas nailed it. The overnights are in from Nielson and 37 million Americans watched PALIN! (19.5 million women, much more then Obama, heh). As many people watched Palin as watched Barackopolis, that embarrassing spectacle - bread and circuses. What is so amazing, the Obama build-up for a year, a year, of the stadium speech spectacle with all those Hollyweird stahs!
Beware the venal one. He and his flying monkeys will bare their fangs. Dirty tricks a go go. It's the only way Obama knows how to win. Never on merit.
Here's my nightcap/recap. What promised to be your typical, shiny happy Republican convention was anything but. Slammed by Gustav, tentative cancellations abound. Monday was scratched. Tuesday a question mark .... 80,000 folks, all dressed up with no place to go.
We wanted to help (and we raised a ton of money doing it) but the dirty media would have loved nothing better than show victims suffering in Gustav's wake against a backdrop of partying Rightwing revelers.
So we laid low and commiserated privately there was talk of the convention being canceled...... and then (doodadooda) here come the sun (doodaluda). And we were are off and running.
If I had to define the convention in one word ... PALIN. She is a the standard bearer - a metaphor for how Republicans are systematically treated at the hands of a thug, state media. And she emerges unfettered. Stronger, even. Across from my hotel you are forced to listen to blathering of Chris Matthews , his daily bellowing, belching, and spewing invectives - A compromised twisted soul spewing invectives at this mother of 5, mayor, governor, hunter, gatherer ....in other words a great American hero. Poor Chris, and Tom, and Wolf, and NPR, and New York Times. PALIN IS AUTHENTIC AND SHE WILL BE THE STANDARD BEARER FOR OUR PARTY. This is a great ticket.
This week, Governor Palin is delivering the weekly radio address for the first time.
DOWNLOAD THE AUDIO FILE HERE: Governor Sarah Palin's Weekly Radio Address:
Sarah Palin represents the very best of our party, she is the future of our party.
She is a Rand character. And so is McCain. Obama is a construct, The last ten minutes of McCain's speech last night was historic. Moved me to tears. He is the real deal, he will save this nation from anarchists, infiltrators, Islamists, and those that want us to go down.
Obama's team wants us to go down .... and rebuild it in a Marxist model. He's a statist.
We were a rejuvenated group. SUCCOR! We were thrilled, excited -- amidst the Marxists, anarchists, Democrats, islamists, haters and and every self tortured misfits
OUTTAKES FROM MY FINE ADVENTURE (CLICK BELOW FOR ALL THE PICS!
I had the most extraordinary experience of my blogging career. Learned a lot and met everyone. (RNC flag 1892)
First night of the convention when the convention appears to be but a footnote in the wake of Gustav. Miniter grabbed me and dragged me t Hindracker's gig (one $50 cab ride into Stephen King country)
After which, Miniter's party after party moved over to my Hotel bar - he holds court so well. Let the debates begin. Richard Miniter and Detroit Press (who is in hard denial on the death of print)
Heather parties and blogs. We love that
