10:10 - Hi Sarah Palin. I like you. :waves:
10:12 - Where's your flag pin, Senator? Obama had one!
10:13 - Wow, there are some downright ugly Republicans. The hotness quotient has clearly gone down since the conventions I attended.
10:14 - Green background? Who threw up?
10:15 - Props to the President? Good. Got that out of the way.
10:15 - Uh oh. Here comes impatient McCain.
10:17 - Cindy is sooooo giving the Senator 'do me eyes'.
10:18 - McCain is thanking his Mom. So why are they showing Barbara Bush?
10:18 and a half - Ha.
10:19 - The background is changing colors. This has totally gotta be freaking out the Moveon psychopaths.
10:20 - "To the Obama supporters" Ok, who is the dumbass that started to boo?
10:21 - AH! BLUE! On a sidenote, what the hell is wrong with American flags as a backdrop? Do it the Mike Deaver way. Toss up a bunch of flags right behind his head and do it right.
10:22 - Wow. Way to handle the protestors, John.
10:23 - Hi Sarah. :wink:
10:25 - John, if you need help introducing the Governor to DC I'm happy to help.
10:26 - "Change is coming." Nice.
10:27 - They aren't really utilizing the new 'town hall' staging.
10:28 - "You will know their names." Awesome.
10:29 - :hangs head: Yeah, I admit it...I was one of those that thought he was finished a year ago when he was outta cash. Helluva comeback, John. Thanks for making us proud.
10:30 - Call out Obama on the surge strategy. Please please please please please.
10:31 - Michigan? Check. Pennsylvania? Check. Where is the Ohio mention?
10:32 - Great job personalizing the war on terror.
10:33 - Calling out Republicans, eh? I hope Tom DeLay isn't there.
10:35 - "A culture of life" and "judges that don't legislate from the bench". What a great big kiss for the base that was.
10:38 - Zzzzzzzzzzz.
10:39 - More substance, Johnny. We've been getting GOP philosophy the whole week.
10:40 - Hitting on the economy a bit. Atta boy.
10:41 - School choice!?!? Nice! Reward good teachers and get rid of the bad ones. Love it.
10:44 - No one will be able to say the speech was light on substance.
10:46 - Calling out Russia. Now THAT is a leader.
10:48 - "I know how the military....world works". Great implied contrast to Obama.
10:49 - "I hate war." Oomph.
10:52 - Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
10:55 - He seems like a different man talking about his time as a POW. What a stark difference between this speech and Obama's. So much more real.
10:57 - Wow. Incredibly touching point regarding standing back up for his country after being broken by his captors.
10:59 - Harsh comparison to Obama re: being "anointed". Has there been a more stark difference between two candidates for President in modern political history?
11:00 - Fight! Stand up! He's pounding through this part of the speech despite the applause. Obviously he was prepped so the campaign can use this for a commercial. Great way to finish the speech. Perfect. That will be played over and over.
11:01 - BALLOONS! WHERE ARE THE DAMN BALLOONS!?!??!
11:04 - There's the flag I was looking for.
11:05 - The story of this speech will be the last 60 seconds. Obama never had a moment like that during his speech at the Temple in Denver.
11:05 - Ah. There are the balloons. :-)
11:06 - BARRACUDA!!! Nice. Every GOP convention needs a good 'Heart' song.
11:08 - They look like rockstars together. Quite a difference from Bush/Cheney, eh?
11:09 - Wonder if someone has stolen the 'Ohio' sign yet? I'm a frickin' ninja with that stuff.
11:10 - Time to watch CNN. Gotta see what the opposition says. Tablesauce out.
