    Bloomberg is reporting that Palin's speech was seen by 37 million viewers last night. Pretty impressive.

    Damn... she sounds like a celebrity. It's almost like people view her as a messiah-like figure, drawn to her cult of personality...

    You know what Karl, you're right. But let's call her a Hero and a Patriot instead, you know, something less anti-American.

    So when is she going on her European tour, like the last celebrity messiah-like figure?

    I'm sure she's just waiting for Jack Abramoff to fund her trip if she can't drum up enough money in earmarks.

    About the same time the politics of the most intellectually progressive time in all of human civilization stop revolving around non-issues, smears, attacks and outright hypocrisy in supporting their party's candidate.

    I'm sure Cindy McCain has an extra one Palin can borrow.

    The only people who deserve to be called Patriots were the ones that signed the first Treaty of Versailles. Anyone else is part of a football team. ;)

    Well, she did sell the state's plane on ebay. Maybe she will be able to have those styrofoam columns sent before her to use.

    I guess that means when we all start supporting Obama. It is ok to come out and say it. We are all friends here, right? ;)

    Sir, I must kindly ask you to tone that down a little, any more and the entire room will have their heads explode.

    Both at the same time on the same days? I'd click the link, but it doesn't seem to want to load properly for me.

    Cheers. I wonder what the figures will be for BO and JM.

    I guess that people knowing nothing about her and Biden being old hat hat something to do with it. Impressive, none the less.

    I'm sure that had a lot to do with it. But it sure is impressive.

    In my opinion this makes it even more impressive. An unknown VP candidate getting almost as many viewers as the opposing party's Presidential candidate. Not to bad.

    I'm looking forward to it, none the less. It's not on until 3 AM though. Being the political junkie that I am, I'd not miss it for the world :D

    People watched for the same reason they slow down when passing a horrific car wreck on the highway. Morbid curiosity.

    Agreed. I'm sure not everyone watching Obama's speech was a supporter either. I wonder what the ratings will be the next time she speaks or during the VP debate.

    I'm dying to see how she performs in debates, especially against Biden. I'd be surprised if Obama ever attends a debate, or just weasels his way out of it. That man just can't speak off of script.
