Palin Wins the Night – Now Let Her Loose.

October 3, 2008

Palin knocked it out. MSNBC and the left are both spinning the same messaging (news flash) that Palin “held her own” but “the question is whether it all coaching and rehearsed?” Is that all they can come up with? She wasn’t supposed to win, hell, even Couric’s award winning journalistic skills were too much for her, and lets not forget every poll the left could find polling negatives on Palin. The game changer does it again. It’s time to let her loose and let her campaign handler free. I’ll leave you with the best part of the debate:

“Ah say it ain’t soh Joe, there you go agin, pointing backwards agin, no you prefaced your whole comment with “The Bush Administration”, now dog gonnit lets look ahead, and tell Americans, what WE have to plan .. to do for them .. in the future.” – Governor Sarah Palin
