9:07 p.m. “CSPAN you might not be welcome at the Heathcare negotiations but you are welcome at the Tea Party convention.” ZING!

9:08 p.m. Gives a shout out to Scott Brown, in many ways he represents what this movement is all about. Talks about the Dems passing blame about the loss in Mass.

9:09 p.m. “They won’t blame their agenda and that’s what got them into this mess.”

9:10 p.m. Democrats own this. When you have supermajorites one would think that went without saying but nobody in the media seemed to want to say it. “If this can happen in Massachusetts it can happen anywhere.”

9:11 p.m. “Competitive primaries are democracy in action.” Shades of Mayor Wong. “May the best ideas win.”

9:13 p.m. “Don’t let any one leader define the movement.” I’m sure the media will laugh at that considering her speech. She calls the soul of the movement the American people.

Hasn’t she read Jacob Weisberg? The people are the problem

9:15 p.m “On Christmas day the system did not work.”

9:16 p.m. “There are questions we would like to have asked this terrorist before he lawyered up.” CNN and MSNBC made a big mistake broadcasting this. They will have to unspin this stuff to people who would not hear this straight.

9:20 p.m. Questions the administration lack of support for Iranian dissidents.

9:23 p.m. Take a lesson from JFK all your problems are not the fault of your predecessor. Ouch.

9:24 p.m. The bailouts have become a slush fund, asks were are the consequences for the bad choices of Wall Street, that is one thing that Obama might echo.

9:26 p.m. Borrowed printed up made up dollars, we can’t sustain the programs funded by them. “It’s tough to tell people no in tough times.”

9:27 p.m. “how’s that hopey changy thing working out for ya?” , hits Joe “nobody messes with Joe” Biden , “they held that transparency meeting behind closed doors.”

9:29 p.m. Mentions the phantom districts and the overruns. “The list of broken promises is long.”

9:31 p.m. Reminds us of the promise of having bills online 5 days before being voted on. “We are drowning in debt and many of us have had enough.” This has to be the first time a lot of the viewers on MSNBC have heard any of this stuff.

9:32 p.m. “We’re stealing opportunities from our children.”

9:34 p.m. Calls for lower taxes for small business, this part is republican boiler plate. “They need to get government out of the way.”

9:35 p.m. Take the reset button from Putin and give it to congress on healthcare. Talks about allowing insurance over state lines and tort reforms.

9:37 p.m. We need all of the above on energy, give Obama a shout out on Nuke power but wants more than words. Attacks Cap and “tax”.

9:45 p.m. “There is nothing wrong with American that we can’t fix as Americans.”, “Government working for the people is what this movement is all about.”

Just over 40 minutes. Ed on MSNBC calls it an “interesting” speech, Bob Shrum calls her a “Merchant of hate with a smile.” It’s going to be hard to sell that to people who actually heard this.

Palin Q & A. Didn’t know that was coming.

Q: How do you see the future of the 3rd party movement? “The republican party would be smart to absorb as much of the movement as possible.” That’s what normally happens to 3rd parties.

Q: What do you want to see from candidates here? A: Limited gov. Mentions we won’t agree on everything but the basics are important.

Q: What are the top 3 things to be done when he have a conservative congress? A: “Reign in spending and develop our resources (Green heads exploding now), not being afraid to go back to our roots as a God fearing nation not being afraid of saying we don’t have all the answers as fallible men and women. (MSM & Allahpundit heads exploding again) Don’t be afraid to proclaim their alliance with their creator.

9:53 p.m. “Who cares what the lamestream media says about us!” That’s going to stick.

9:55 p.m. “It’s cool to see blue dog dems peeking in under the tent of the movement.” Says they will come out of the closet as believers in conservatism.

9:56 p.m. Q: What is the Palin plan? A: “Support those who understand the foundation of our country.”, and echo’s Reagan’s “We win, they lose.”

9:58 p.m. I don’t think she knows CNN & MSNBC are carrying this.

9:59 p.m. She will endorse and campaign for candidates during this election.

10:01 p.m. “Don’t fake it.”, it builds distrust. Avoid promises you will not keep. MSNBC cuts away. CNN stays with it misses something key about her speaking fee happy to give it back. MSNBC is in full attack mode with Neil Boratz as their counter voice but attacks her for speaking up for life, of course he does..

CNN is replaying it or at lest seems to be doing so.

    I made a point to watch the Palin speech live on MSNBC. I even turned off my PS3 while playing the game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to do so!

    Watching it live it sounded as though she wasn’t prepared, didn’t know what she wanted to say, needed to constantly look down at her speech in order to know what to do next, and she jumped from topic to topic, interupting herself in order to attempt to get a random reaction from the crowd. The crowd seemed like it couldn’t follow her words, and only cheered when prompted to do so.

    Perhaps she needs a new speech writer, or if she wrote this speech herself she needs a professional one.

    There was a noticable change from her speaking roles of the ’08 campaign when she had the ability, one that not many of us have, to criticize and insult you to your face with a smile, and without you knowing she just did so.

    Last night’s Sara was not the Palin campaigning for VP that the country fell in love with.

    She had a few good one liners in her speech though. I liked how she pointed out that the same terrorists we are fighting against are receiving the rights that we fight and die for. Taking that point of view can get anyone on your side.

    The statement ‘we need a Commander-in-Chief, not a Professor of Law’ was very strong.

    She mentioned 0-3, referencing the democratic losses & conservative wins in New Jersey & Virginia Governor races, and Massachusetts senate of the recent elections. Failing however to point out that in NY-23, the candidate she endorsed and was made a big deal on this blog, failed to win the seat in the House of Representatives. 0-3? No, more like 1-4 and you get the same relative point across.

    An easy comparison, especially on Super Bowl Sunday, would be that of the New Orleans Saints. They started the year 13-0 (’08 elections), lost their 3 games with nothing to play for (mid-term elections) then won their Divisional Playoff vs Arizona (NY-23) had lots of mistakes and turnovers but squeaked out an over-time victory in the NFC Championship Game vs. the Vikings (Healthcare Reform) and now play for the Lombardi trophy!

    Anywho, as I posted on my facebook page immediately after her speech “well this speech sure has a lot of nothing in it. it’s uncomfortable to listen to. it doesn’t flow like her speeches did during the campaign in ’08. so disappointing. if she has any plans for 2012 or beyond, she must improve”

    Thats my observation of last night. She is losing the hockey mom image that gained her popularity. Heck, even I liked her during the ’08 campaign, but when voting for a presidential ticket I vote for the better candidate for president, not who would I like to see as Vice President!

    Additional observations…

    After the speech during the Q&A there was a change in Ms. Palin. When she knows what she is talking about she sounds more likable. Although she may have been prepared with the questions in advance but they were all softballs anyways so its not like she could have screwed them up.

    After SNL, I happened upon C-SPAN. They were replaying the speech. In the replay, I don’t know what it was or what caused it, it felt as though the speech flowed a little bit better; the sound may have been clearer and the camera view may have been different than that of MSNBC.

    I wasn’t alive during the Nixon/Kennedy (tv vs. radio audience) debate but if two different television channels can give you different opinions over what you just watched a few hours earlier i can understand the differences of opinions.

    I still stand by my position of the first but am cognizant of the second.

  4. […] can only work if they are the gatekeepers of information, and that title no longer exists. In fact when a MSNBC and a CNN viewer is able to watch a Palin speech and Q & A unfiltered it makes it a lot harder for their commentators to spin […]
