Bias Is Interesting. (Mine, that is.)
I admit I didn't see the tail end of Sarah Palin's speech -- the DVR had two other things to record, apparently -- what I saw didn't seem particularly interesting, though she certainly does seem like a good speaker. But the biggest cheers I heard were about hockey moms and pit bulls, and the like.
But what do I know? I'm not disposed to giving her an entirely fair chance, I'll admit. But the networks certainly suggested she gave a good speech.
What I will say is this: when each candidate got nominated, even though it was theater, the absolute ROAR when Hilary nominated Obama (and did so in about fifteen seconds) pretty much dwarfed the solid but unspectacular cheering that followed the Arizona's five minute nomination speech about Barry Goldwater and blah blah blah. (Though I did like that she, unlike Palin, called him by his non-abbreviated name of John Sidney McCain.)
But like I said, I'm not predisposed to like it.
