Ooooooooh, Barracuda!

Sarah Palin just delivered one of the most brilliant political speeches I have ever heard. Even MSNBC's Keith Olberman had to admit it was good.

Her performance was flawless. It was Ronald Reagan/John F. Kennedy perfection.

But, as a standup comic, I am truly thrilled that she can actually tell a joke. I almost teared up when she quipped, "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick." As a professional joke teller, I can say for the first time-- to paraphrase Michelle Obama-- I was proud of my country.

I don't like McCain. I don't trust him. I didn't intend to vote for him. I figured I'd just sit on my hands this election, or maybe vote for Barr. Now I've got to vote for McCain. Not because of his choice of VP, but because of the media.

I'm not even voting against Obama. I'm voting against CNN.

I hadnt planned to watch it or be impressed but after a few minutes I was completely blown away.

I was sent an email today from a gay friend that had questionnable pics of Bristol's bf getting a bj with an entreaty to pass it on. I wrote back saying I didnt see what a 17 yr old boy's sex life had to do with politics and my 'friend' wrote back 'of course you dont.' He doesnt even know who I'm voting for. People are insane.

Immediately following her performance both the media and the Obama campaign made a big deal about how she didn't write her speech. Really? I think Lincoln was the last president to actually pen his own words.

Talk about sexism!
