In case you missed it...

I stayed up late last night to watch all the speeches online from the Republican convention and I was extremely impressed! Mike Huckabee, Giuliani, and Sarah Palin all did an outstanding job! Palin's speech was awesome! According to
Sarah Palin "Winged" Her Speech Because of "Broken" Teleprompter. Halfway through Sarah Palin's speech tonight at the RNC, people following the speech noticed she was deviating from the prepared text.

According to sources close to the McCain campaign, the teleprompter continued scrolling during applause breaks. As a result, half way through the speech, the speech had scrolled significantly from where Governor Palin was in the speech. The malfunction also occurred during Rudy Giuliani's speech, explaining his significant deviations from his speech.

Unfazed, Governor Palin continued, from memory, to deliver her speech without the teleprompter cued to the appropriate point in her speech.

Contrast this to Barack Obama who, when last his teleprompter malfunctioned, was left stuttering before a crowd unable to advance his speech until the problem was resolved.

Sarah Palin. Winner.

Here is the video of her speech:

I even thought Giuliani did a fantastic job with his speech and I'm not a big fan of him.

Last but not least, here's Mike Huckabee's speech. Of course Huckabee gave a great speech with some great quotes in it. My only regret is that he is not our Presidential candidate. Oh well, there's always 2012... :)
