One of the most compelling and effective convention speeches I've ever heard. That sound you hear is the chain of public opinionâ€”Sarah Palin's going up and the MSM's going down. All the smears of the last 48 hours look hollow. No wonder the Obama camp was trying so hard to disqualify her before the American people had a chance to see this. If this race is to be won in the blue collar towns of America, I'd rather have Sarah Barracuda by my side than the cuff-linked windbag from Scranton.
