His speech was short, to the point, punchy and even had a good zinger or two. Lots of the usual conservative talking points (The New York Times is evil, liberals are weak and PC and will raise taxes to feed the bloated government they so love, etc.), and the crowd ate it up. Weird that he called Washington and the Supreme Court liberal when the conservatives have run the executive and judicial branches of government for the better part of a decade now. It was also funny hearing him talking about "Eastern elites" when he used to be a liberal governor of Massachusetts.
No disrespect to Gov. Palin, but it became clear between 9:00 and 9:20 PM ET tonight that Mitt Romney should have been chosen as McCain's VP. Now that would have been a tough ticket!
I have a feeling we'll be seeing Romney running again in 2012, should McCain lose, and this time doing a whole lot better.
Next up, Huckabee, Giuliani and Palin.
