Video of McCain and Palin in Dayton

Skip ahead to 9 minutes or so to get right to Palin's speech, although McCain's introduction isn't bad. He's a lot more vigorous in this appearance than he's been on other occasions.

Palin is extremely likable. And her oldest son is in the army (he even enlisted on September 11th! -- of last year, anyway.) All her kids have kooky names (Track, Piper, Willow, Trig, etc.) That's not a bad thing at all.

The liberals who are claiming Republican men would never vote for a ticket with a woman on it don't know what they're talking about.

Palin: “It was rightly noted in Denver this week that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America. But it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.“ Heh. Not bad at all.

Baracks Speech was great democratic red meat. Im sure he spoke to the hearts and minds of hillarys people. By the way did anyone hear Chris matthews of msnbc? He basically endorsed barack obama on air. Whats up w that? Anyone who thinks NBC is unbiased is smoking large amounts of crack. Read that in the http://fargpophantom.com
Lets see what the Goverment Channel has to say at FOX News tonight. Looks like a successful Speech and will prove to be a strong force of change.

Moonbat heads are exploding...woman...son in the service...more executive experience than both dem candidates combined...

Right away their "chicken-hawk" argument is gone...

Their "fresh face" and "new ideas" arguments are toast...

Their whole "we're the party of minorities" argument is toast...

Expect much moaning and wailing in the left-o-sphere over the long weekend...

So they ended the Sarah Palin speech with the Van Halen song "Right Now" playing. Interesting choice, not just because it is popular with sports teams for introductions, but for the unintended humour factor. It's not nearly as funny as when Pat Robertson campaigned using John Philip Sousa's "Liberty Bell" aka the theme to Monty Python's Flying Circus (he really did!), but pretty funny for anyone who (like I do) remembers the music video for the song.

The video shows a series of different visuals with captions that all start with the words "right now". Among the captions are the following:

- Right now, oil companies and old men are in control.
- Right now, our government is doing things we think only other countries do.
- Right now, justice is being perverted in a court of law.
- Right now, someone is working too hard for minimum wage.
- Right now, God is killing dogs and moms because he has to.

Not quite a pro-McCain message, but hey. It's only the video. But it does make me wonder if McCain got permission to use the song or if this is another case of song stealing on his part. Anyway, you can see the whole Van Halen video here. Right now!

Looks like I was right. McCain is still stealing songs:

But did you know ... Palin's child born this past April is named "Trig Paxson Van Palin"? The name, it seems, is a shout-out to the band. So maybe they will forgive them:

Breaking news: VP hopeful Sarah Palin announces that her 17 yr old daughter Bristol Palin is pregnant and will marry the father.

At least they're keeping the baby and getting married as responsible people ought to do under these circumstances. Will Sarah or her husband carry the shotgun? :)

No news here. Even the Messiah himself, Hopey McChange, was the product of a teenage mother. Contrary to popular belief, he does not believe in infanticide.
