Subbing for Lars today

Lars is on his way back to Portland from the RNC, so I will be subbing for him today. I'll be talking, of course, about the convention, McCain's speech, and the Palin phenomenon.

I will take a bow for my predicition on how the Palin choice would play out. In my posts this week I begged the left to keep up the attacks. I knew that the more they went overboard with their condescending elitism, the more regular folks would come to her defense.

They did, and they did.

Palin gave an incredible speech, and now she's off on the campaign trail. Polling this morning by Rasmussen has the race basically tied, and that poll was done over three days - two of which were before Palin's speech.

Rasmussen also polled Palin. She has 58% positives - higher than Obama! More than half of people say that the media is trying to hurt her candidacy - an astounding result. That is the first time I have seen any poll in which more than half the people said the media was definitely biased.

In other words, Sarah Palin has taken on the media, and beat the crap out of them.
