Sarah Palin Delivers: Updated!

I am blown away. Just blown away.

Maybe because I agree with almost all of the things she said tonight, but she is a dynamic speaker with a common, inviting manner that makes you WANT to listen to her.

I loved her speech. I still want to hear her speak to Troopergate, and why she filed an ethics complaint on herself. I want to know more about her earmark requests and whether that's consistent with McCain's position on pork.

But I think she did a masterful job of introducing herself, avoiding distasteful issues, and SKEWERING the Democratic ticket on a number of issues.

I look forward to more from Sarah as the campaign continues, and I think she'll continue to prove just why John McCain picked her as his running mate.

UPDATE: Here's what some of my Cotillion sisters thought of Sarah's speech:

She hit a home run - way out of the ball park tonight. She caught all those news idiots totally off guard... apparently they started to believe all the stories they were making up about her. Best of all, she showed that she can speak well and is tough as nails. I loved it. Can't wait to see her take on Biden - she will walk all over him and then use his shirt to wipe the floor. LOL!

AP piece on some of the fact checking. But honestly, everyone stretches the truth in their speeches.
