Jeff Toobin Rips McCain Speech: "Shockingly Bad," Worst Since Carter In 1980

Posted: Updated:

CNN Senior Analyst and New Yorker magazine columnist Jeff Toobin didn't mince words in his reaction to John McCain's acceptance speech.

Shortly after McCain's speech wrapped up, Toobin told Wolf Blitzer:

I thought it was the worst speech by a nominee that I've heard since Jimmy Carter in 1980.

I thought it was disorganized, themeless, I thought it was very, very boring until the end when he started talking about his personal story, which is, of course, remarkable and always important to hear. I personally cannot remember a single policy proposal that he made because they had nothing connecting them. I found it shockingly bad.

Toobin did praise Sarah Palin's speech from Wednesday night, however, and noted the difference between the two.
