The nomination acceptance speeches for both Barack Obama & John McCain were telling moments for their race for the White House.
Obama shattered expectations with an oratory masterpiece, while McCain managed to survive the night with the support of two crutches: his POW biography and sassy VP pick Sarah Palin.
When Obama’s moment came, he wiped the GOP’s character attacks of him off the map: Celebrity? Patriotism? Toughness? All arguments revealed to be nothing more than child’s play–the retorts in this speech were so delicious!!!
After a solid Joe Biden VP pick, a successful DNC, and Obama’s game changing speech, the Republicans had to make a desperate move in order to compete…that’s where VP pick Sarah Palin came in.
This pro-life, moose hunting, hockey mom-ing, miss congeniality-winning, right wing firecracker came out with venom for Obama, electrifying her base with an effective, substance free, biting performance. She gave the cowboy hat-wearing GOPs an early climax at the convention…and McCain put them to sleep afterwards.
