Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wasted no time in her acceptance speech last evening comparing her experience as governor and earlier as mayor to Barack Obama’s penning of two memoirs and his “community organizing” experiences on the street of Chicago. She stressed that being a mayor of a municipality or governor of a state entails real responsibility. Below I have printed some rough notes from Palin’s acceptance speech as she spoke.
In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change in politics…..John McCain is not looking for a fight but sure isn’t afraid of one either….Harry Reid;s statement “I can’t stand John McCain” is proof we chose the right man….Let’s take the maverick out of the senate and put him in the White House….There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you..in places where winning means survial and defeat means death and that man is John McCain….John McCain’s journey is that of an upright and honorable man only his is of one of those who came home…his compassion is of one who was once powerless, who has seen evil and has seen evil overcome…we’re gonna pull throught this….create the kind of America we need to see us through the next four years…John McCain has inspired with his deeds….join our cause and help elect a great man as the next President of the United States…thank you , and God Bless America.
Absolute pandemonium followed the Palin speech and it was some minutes before John McCain appeared on the stage saying: “Don’t you think we made the right choice for Vice President of the United States?”
