Now

Philip R. Klein gushes over Governor Sarah Palin's speech last night at the Republican National Convention:

Governor Sarah Palin gave a speech of a lifetime. And showed that a Hockey Mom is different than a pit bull - she just wears lipstick.

Typically, Philip falls right in lockstep with the Republican Party Line. What I saw last night was a college graduate with a degree in Mass Communication who knows how to read from a teleprompter. Too bad Philip didn't make into his sophomore year at TT, else he might have been less impressed.

On a personal note, I was leaning towards McCain in this election cycle, but after watching Palin's speech last night, I've moved into the undecided category.  Having documented Philip R. Klein's meanderings from issue to issue based on a bumper sticker mentality, I have a hard time taking anyone at face value who has a history of coming down on both sides on any issue. 

As an example from Sarah Palin's past, she was apparently for the Alaskan Bridge to Nowhere before she was against it.  In Philip's case, he's apparently against eminent domain and wasteful spending in Downtown Beaumont, but thinks the Trans-Texas Corridor is just fine.

Philip offers his endorsement, the kiss of death for any politician:

Governor Sarah Palin gave a speech of a lifetime. And showed that a Hockey Mom is different than a pit bull - she just wears lipstick.

Not too many people play hockey in Texas, but we have another colloquialism down here about lipstick on pigs.  I suspect Sarah Palin will join Geraldine Ferraro as a footnote in history.
