Thomas Lifson at American Thinker tells us about it - - -
The smug laughter among liberal elites at Sarah Palin is quieting down, replaced by low moaning. Clive Crook of The Atlantic admits that there might have been just a bit of misunderestimating going on among the left:
...the Democrats have a problem. They had a few days of calling her a clueless redneck, a stewardess, a nonentity, and she has hurled that back in their bleeding gums. (If I were Joe Biden, I'd start practicing for October 2nd right now.)
I think he's right. Expect the Democrats to caricature Palin (again), this time as a wild-eyed religious fanatic bent on imposing her views on others' lives. That's fine with me. Let's have a nuanced talk about the infanticide Obama supports, while little Piper Palin slicks down Trig's hair. ….
The rest of Lifson’s post’s here.
I thought Gov. Palin hit a home run last night. It was a very well crafted speech very well delivered.
It obviously played well in the convention hall. It’s a safe bet it also played well among the American people.
It’s not hard to understand why the Democratic MSM, aligned with special interests groups like NOW and the Green orgs which want to hold back American efforts to become more energy self-reliant, want to take her out with smears and ridicule before the American public get to know her.
Palin’s outstanding example last evening of grace under pressure has the Dems and MSM moaning this morning.
But don’t underestimate the mendacity of many of them.
They’re going to come after her with more smears and ridicule at the slightest opportunity.
