Just a few minutes away from John McCain’s big speech.
It will be interesting to see how it compares to Palin’s.
David Gergen at CNN is apparently a little bit disconnected as HE stated that others were disconnected who said that Democrats were running Washington. Gergen’s perspective is apparently that the party of the President dictates who runs Washington, as he says that “Republicans have been running Washington for the last 8 years.” That doesn’t work for me.
Democrats have held Congress for the last 2 years. Gergen’s comments were very misleading.
Of course, if you don’t acknowledge the power of Congress today as held by liberal Democrats, you get to ignore the fact that the severe demise of our economy has occurred while Democrats controlled Congress.
The MSM will have us believe what they want us to believe to get more and more liberal control of the government.
Journalism’s demise has been a longstanding disappointment for me. I had majored in Journalism briefly in college, and I produced a daily 30 minute radio news program at my college for a semester. I dropped the Journalism major after taking a class in “Journalistic Ethics”. Seriously, the class was a disappointment as I discovered that, at least in the school setting, the title was an oxymoron.
Anyhow, there’s little hope of seeing the Press act objectively and outside the news.

Tonight’s speech is going to be important not only because of the drive for the McCain-Palin ticket, but for the need to have Republicans take back control of Congress and get us out of this misery.
It’s going to take some work. McCain needs to do what he can to help as well.

Palin’s speech last night really knocked the socks off of a lot of people… watched by over 37 million people. Everyone I talked to who saw the speech was really impressed.
Sarah is scaring the Left, including Obama who took the time to make some public comments about Palin today in an attempt to distract from the Republican Convention events. Listening to his comments, it sounds like he’s confused and unsure how to articulate serious thoughts.

I will not have time to comment tonight on McCain’s speech. I need to get some sleep. Tomorrow sometime I’ll comment.
By the way, Cindy McCain is speaking… pretty darn good. She’ll make a great First Lady. Great family story.
