Wow, I still have a blog; I'd wondered if I'd neglected it so long that it disappeared on me.
I won't bore you today. My own rhetoric is vastly inferior to the acres of ink spilled already on the subject of the presidential election. Anything I could say in defense of John McCain and Sarah Palin has doubtless already been said elsewhere, and more eloquently. And fortunately, both are up to the task of fighting their own battles; two such strong characters do not need my clumsy attempts at protecting their good names.
I just want to take this opportunity to link to the best speech I've ever witnessed. Since the dying, dysfunctional medium known as the "mainstream" media refused to air it, it is my opinion that Fred Thompson's RNC speech should be posted on every conservative blog in the country; it should be mirrored and linked, transcripts should be emailed in quantities rivaling the most insidious of chain letters. Segments of the speech should be put into political ads; individual lines should be disseminated on t-shirts, posters, and bumper stickers.
I think I have just witnessed the birth of the political heir to Ronald Reagan.
