CPAC came to a close this afternoon with none other than Sarah Palin bringing down the house. She began with “Obama has transformed a shining city on a hill into a sinking ship” and never let off the gas.

A brief heckler interruption with that annoying “mic check” thing, but otherwise, as they say, this is what they came to hear:


You’ve gotta laugh at the photo Reuters is running. Obama gets halos, Palin gets this.

    I like the WTF picture. That's why my face looks like every time Blamo opens his mouth.

    Wait, what ? You`re not a guy ?

    And I'm not Palin, either.

    Closing statement:

    "For the sake of our country we must stand united, whoever our nominee is."

    Classic Palin. Makes a great conservative speech and then takes us to the same place McCain was taking us. If she really wanted to make a difference, she should have chosen to run instead of being a pundit. Her adoring cult will follow her anywhere but that is all she is these days, a cult idol.

    She blew it when she embraced McCain as her first public act coming out of "retirement". She has done nothing to burnish her conservative credentials since. Very inconsistent.

    So well said.

    She just keeps getting more shrill and cliche' And I am a devotee.

    Gov. Palin made a great case tonight for a Convention Speech to deliver the base. And people–young, old, male, female–all went BANANAS with joy when she walked through CPAC earlier today.

    So what? This is a CPAC that went for Rombama. It should be renamed RPAC.

    …so anyone who wants to get applause only has to invoke the name of Regan in a speech and Palin proves this more than anybody else. The master of the obvious. Regurgitates the nightly news.

    No ideas, no new information, never anything new for conservatives to chew on which is probably why she didn’t run, she has naught to offer other than her cheerleading, which admittedly she is good at. When her luster begins to fade she rises to the surface again, leads her groupies in a cheer-speech and shines for a while then disappears again until her ego deflates from home life and then back to the microphone.

    Since she burst on the scene in the lower forty-eight over three years ago, how has she changed in a positive way and grown in political astuteness and leadership abilities? Is growth in three years too much to ask?

    She’s easy to look at but same-ole, same-ole.
