Straight Talk Express to Boredom

John McCain got all the help he needed. The VP choice was a smashing success 36 million people watched including 19 million women. This was only beat by the 37 million, which had watched Obama, although his women number was lower. The table was set the speakers the night before had laid the groundwork; the VP Sarah Palin brought the house down. His wife stepped to the podium and delivered a heartfelt tribute to the inside on living with McCain. Then at 10:20 EST he stepped to the stage and we think most of America was a sleep by 10:40. There was no fanfare, no thrill, and no excitement. When he gave the closing remarks, they were not inspiring. The crowd erupted and grew with enthusiasm, he story is compelling as well as amazing to hear. It just felt that if you were a democratic Hillary supporter or not and fan of Obama, or even an Independent there was nothing to wrap your hands around. We have already endorsed John McCain and at least with the addition of Palin we feel it the ticket has shifted to a more solid conservative standing. So next up is the debates so here is the breakdowns on that, as remember it is not a job to stay informed it is a gift. Let the games begin.
