Sarah Palin: Even Pretty Speeches Need Truth Under Them

First reactions, beyond my rants:

She indicated her support for the continued undermining of the Constitution by criticizing Barack Obama for supporting Miranda vs. Arizona

She ignored the fact that she cut funding for teen pregnancy support in Alaska while claiming family values.

She skipped over the fact that she cut funding for special needs children while using hers to call women to her side.

Her snark didn’t play well with this woman.

They continue to claim some pathway to victory without ever defining victory.

The power of her speech was all in the appearance. The family on the stage at the end was intended to send the message that Mom, Apple Pie, America was there with a true hero thrown in too. It played like a 50’s tearjerker. Of course, the hope is that everyone reacted emotionally, and they did.

A pretty speech, pretty loose on facts, heavy on snark. She made an election about big issues an election about small things.

We really can’t let that happen.
