Still More on the Conventions
Finally the Republicans have generated some spirit at their convention. The speeches last night roused the crowd and got them on their feet. It was typical conservative rhetoric with an attack on government, the media and elitist thinkers who might be influenced by European ideas. They clearly differentiated themselves from Obama and the Democrats. It appears that McCain's selection of Sarah Palin has healed the rift with the ultra conservative right wing of the party. Now, all that remains is for the Senator to put the finisheing touches on a relatively successful convention.
