When was the last time you watched such a smooth, feisty and all-that politician like Sarah Palin during her acceptance speech Wednesday night? She showed she is in control. She showed wit. She showed a tough side. She showed a motherly, compassionate side. And she showed Joe Biden is in a heap of trouble when they debate.
For all the media punching she's taken since Friday, I have to say she slapped it back, way back in her speech tonight. The kids were cute. Little Piper licking her hand to smooth her baby brother's hair was priceless and clearly unrehearsed. You don't just inherit compassion for a younger sibling like Piper was displaying tonight. You learn much, if not all of it, from your mom and dad.
It's a new race for the presidency as of about 20 minutes ago. All the joking about how qualified Sarah Palin is to serve in office probably will continue, but I think she put some people on notice tonight. Sarah Palin don't play that. And that's what makes her a worthy opponent, and that's how Sarah Palin delivered tonight.
