[EDIT — well hey there C-SPAN, thanks for the link. Mind you, while he’s a fellow Alaskan Republican, I wouldn’t call Halcro a Palin supporter as such — they have a long and complicated history, as he’s more than happy to explain! Also, two ‘t’s in my last name, please. Thanks, and welcome anyone who’s clicked through to this, feel free to browse around the place. But if you’re just following up on thoughts on Palin’s speech, I’d just recommend going to the link to Halcro’s page directly, all I’m doing here is providing a link and brief summary.]
…really I was just waiting to see what Andrew Halcro would say. And he delivered — he boosted her performance in the first couple of paragraphs on what you would expect a fellow Alaskan and Republican to approve of — he has no reason not to, after all — and then slammed down hard on nearly every key part of her gubernatorial record as stated in the speech as being false, a distortion or at the least widely open to creative interpretation.
Then he concluded:
Even with the over reaching, good job Governor Palin.
Backhanded compliments are sometimes the best.
(And don’t think that Obama’s team aren’t happily noting all this information and figuring out how to address it all. Trust me, they are, and they’re going to have some fun with it.)
[EDIT — Halcro’s next post delves deeper into recent developments. When they start talking subpoenas, one wants to hope that anyone starry-eyed over the speech might want to at least question facets of her general savvy in office…]
