Sarah Palin's Big Generic Moment


by Turkana

Keep in mind that you will not actually be hearing from Sarah Palin. As Chris Cilizza reported, yesterday, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis has openly admitted that Palin will deliver but an adaptation of a generic speech that was previously prepared for a presumed male nominee:

Davis generally dismissed the controversies surrounding McCain's vice presidential pick -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin -- as a media creation but did acknowledge that her acceptance speech, which seems likely to come tomorrow, is critically important to defining who she is to the American public.

As for the speech itself, Davis said a generic, "masculine" speech was being prepared before the pick was made and, now that Palin is the choice, she is adapting the speech to her own needs and personality.

It's comforting to know that McCain and Palin take politics so seriously. It's comforting to know that they take the voters so seriously. You can be certain she will read it well. You can be certain that the corporate media foofs will eat it up.
