I suppose this was the first and last time I'll get a chance to watch a person whose political career I've observed from the very beginnings to such a stratospheric level, give such a highly heralded debut on the national stage. Judy thought the speech was good. I was horrified.
Not by Palin's delivery, but by the audience's responses.
Meanwhile, the phones keep ringing. I can't begin to list the topics that come up, but - believe me - Sarah Palin will have to be insulated in some kind of astronaut suit designed to get you back to earth from an asteroid hit on your Mars craft 20,000,000 miles from earth without any other means of support, to survive until the November election.
These investigative reporters are always polite toward me, toward Alaskans, neutral toward Palin and the now augering landscapes of our fall election. But it is becoming increasingly obvious to me that our Alaska press editors and publishers have utterly failed to explain how things really work here to our citizenry.
Not our reporters. To reiterate - our editors and publishers.
More in the morning.
