Why, Fred, Why? (Day 2 RNC speeches: Thompson and Lieberman)

Why didn't you run? I damn near peed myself watching you kick so much "pinkytoe" (to steal a sarahk-ism). This was among the best political speeches I have ever heard. I really hope John rewards you with some kind of role. In any case, I look forward to your time on the campaign trail....

And, Joe, my man, your Democrat friends are taking you off their speed dials tonight. That took serious balls. My hat's off to you for going through with the courage of your convictions and backing your friend for President.

Can't wait for the Sarah-Cuda tomorrow. I really look forward to hearing what she has to say for herself, and how she responds to the rivers of BS that have been spewing since Friday.

I didn't know if Fred's speech excited me because I'd wanted him to run so badly... or if it was just a great a$$ kicking speech. But my husband and I loved it. ;)

Thompson was incredible -- they definitely picked the right person to deliver that bit of history. I'll admit I fell asleep during Lieberman, and I look forward to Palin tonight too...

and can you believe the excerpt they keep playing on NBC is when he called Obama unqualified? I can't believe they picked that sentence to vilify their hero.

I watched the youtubes this am...and wanted to cry I loved it so much..

I watched Fred, and thought,

Why in the hell did you not make this speech months ago...
