Headlines recently declared "Sarah Palin's Speeches Were Ready but Never Seen -- Until Now." While Palin did not deliver her concession speech on election night, she did deliver most of it eight days later.
Five minutes into yesterday's Oprah extravaganza with Sarah Palin, I messaged Steve Schmidt, John McCain's presidential campaign manager: "So how did you know Bristol was pregnant before it was announced?"
It's been a strange week for the Republican Party, with noisy events pushing the old-time religion, a speech urging a new moderation, and back-to-the-future reactions to Obama's friendly gestures to Chavez.
While it is great to see people like Schmidt so dramatically shift their positions on such a hot-button political issue as gay marriage, we should all clearly realize see this for what it is: political ambulance chasing.
Everyone who sees this ad can see how dirty it is. If Obama wants Americans to respect him, he should react with the kind of anger -- controlled, but still palpable -- anyone would feel if somebody did this to them.
