I’m still no fan of Sarah Palin’s political views, but I sure as hell loved that speech. She did her job and motivated that base. Her delivery was excellent. I wish she were a democrat!
More importantly, I wish more democrats were like her. She came out swinging, she didn’t pull punches, and she wasn’t afraid to be a little aggressive in her criticisms of Obama/Biden. I want to see more of that from the Obama campaign. That being said, it is not Obama’s style to be cutting or sarcastic, so he needs to outsource that edgy-ness to more people than just Joe Biden.
Being right on the issues isn’t the same as being perceived as being right on the issues. The longer the democrats assume the mantle of “I’m right / you’re wrong / I don’t need to be edgy”, the more they stand to lose.
