Unconventional Thoughts

-This Republican ticket has really turned politics upside down. That I know of, for the first time most old white Republicans are saying that a woman is the right person to be second in command of the nation while left leaning feminists are complaining that a mother cannot do the job of VP because she should be at home taking care of her children.

-This morning, I am a little tired. I knew I had to get up at 4 AM as usual, but I was compelled to watch Governor Palin give her address to the Republican convention.

-The speech started around 10:30 PM, but did not end until almost 11:20. It was scheduled to go 40 minutes.

-Due to an uncontrollable crowd ovation when she came out, the speech went long. It was as electric and exciting a moment as I have ever witnessed.

-I was worried that she would not be able to stand up to the pressure of the moment but was totally reassured that McCain made the right choice.

-This speech was really just words, but it should make a difference for those who were worried if she could take the pressure. She pulled no punches in her jabs, she was warm and personal, and most of all she really pointed out her accomplishments (which quite surprisingly are far and above those of Senator Obama).

-Win or lose, Palin is someone to watch for the future of the conservative/pro America movement.

-It’s football season and the Life Pointe Fantasy Football league (click here for instructions to join) has 8 teams. We have room for 4 more, although 8 will be enough to have a solid league. You still have time to sign up; the draft is Sunday at 5 PM, and our first set of match ups will begin in week 2 of the NFL season.
