She's a 10

Your humble and obedient servant has a strict bed time: 10:00 p.m. That's eastern time. Last night, we made an exception, and watched Governor Palin live.

If we were selling, we'd urge our readers to vote for Senator McCain. We'd extol his virtues, and praise Governor Palin.

We're not selling.

Go find a recording of Governor Palin's speech. Don't read the text. Don't rely on the 175-year-old Bob Sheiffer to tell you what happened. Don't review Keith's countdown. Listen. Watch. Decide.

Miss Sarah is exactly who we hoped she was. Smart. Clever. Talented. Like Ronald Reagan, she cares what you think, but not too much. She's delivered five children. She knows she's adorable. Before her speech, to put her at ease, her husband promised that when they got back to their hotel, he'd do that thing she likes so much. You know, the thing that's illegal in Illinois.

I feel a little sorry for Joe Biden.

[UPDATE] Here's high praise from the other side:
The speech that Governor Palin gave was well delivered, but it was written by George Bush's speechwriter and sounds exactly like the same divisive, partisan attacks we've heard from George Bush for the last eight years. If Governor Palin and John McCain want to define 'change' as voting with George Bush 90% of the time, that's their choice, but we don't think the American people are ready to take a 10% chance on change," said Bill Burton, Obama Campaign Spokesman.
When the best you can do is hurumph that someone else wrote the speech that just left your candidate slack-jawed, you're in trouble. Possibly the Barry & Joe Show will now hire some of W's speechwriters. It's a thought.

Jonah Goldberg suggests: "She was put on this earth to do two things: kill caribou and kick butt. She's all out of caribou."

[UPDATE - II] Here's a "best of Sarah" clip:
