Big T's Pic of the Day

RNC Coverage Night 1 or was it Night 2?

Night one was washed out by hurricane Gustav, and the Republican National Convention was turned into a fundraising drive for the hurricane victims. The RNC put the country first and cut their convention short, which was definitely the right decision.

Joe Lieberman put it all on the line for McCain

Wow…Joe Lieberman really put country before party last night. His democrat colleagues are not going to be happy about that at all.

“So tonight, I ask you whether you are independent, a Reagan Democrat or a Clinton Democrat, or just a Democrat: This year, when you vote for president, vote for the person you believe is best for the country, not for the party you happen to belong to.”

Lieberman is probably finished within the Democrat Party, but I doubt he cares all that much.

Fred Thompson was On Fire Last Night!

Fred Thompson gave a great speech last night. If he had spoke with that kind of spirit and humor during the primary he might have been the nominee.

Thompson gave his overwhelming support for VP candidate Sarah Palin and had a word for her critics.”Some Washington pundits and media big shots are in a frenzy over the selection of a woman who has actually governed rather than just talked a good game on the Sunday talk shows and hit the Washington cocktail circuit. Well, give me a tough Alaskan Governor who has taken on the political establishment in the largest state in the Union — and won — over the beltway business-as-usual crowd any day of the week.”

The John McCain Story Backed by Friends.

One of the major differences between this convention and the Democrat’s convention is how the story has been told about their candidate. John McCain has friends, personal experiences from people like Fred Thompson and Joe Lieberman who worked proudly with McCain in the Senate. Character witnesses if you will…We did not see that during the DNC.

No one during the DNC could tell a personal story of working with Barack Oabama or share any of his life accomplishments…Yeah, there was his wife, but it isn’t as meaningful when it comes from family. Maybe the reason we never got any character witnesses is because the people that know Obama the best are the ones Obama doesn’t want you to remember that he is associated with.

They’re Trying to Write Her Off the Ticket, It’s disrespectful to women and down right sexist!

The leftist media and liberals are running scared over Sarah Palin. They are attacking her on anything they can find! The New York Times actually ran a story questioning whether a mother of five should be working at all! Wow…is that fair? Did anyone ever question a man on whether he could be a father and hold a job?

Then we have this so-called “troopergate” thing, which is going nowhere. Palin called the investigation of her own actions and the officers who lost their jobs are even saying she had no role.

These attacks are disgraceful. They are disrespectful to women and completely sexist.

Now we have the media asking if John McCain properly vetted their VP pick. Come on folks. Is this the best they can do?

It is truly amazing; it took three days for the media to unleash a non-stop attack on this woman and her family. This same media won’t even ask Barack Obama why he was associated with an unrepentant terrorist named William Ayers, or why he sat in a pew of a church that preached hate and discontent toward America for more than 20 years.

The problem with Sarah Palin is she is not a member of the DC political establishment. She is a member of the middle-America crowd. She has a family that probably reminds you of your family or the one that lives next door.

This lady scares the media. They know she is a winner, and they’re going to do anything they can to try and write her off the ticket. They want John McCain to drop her from the ticket.

Big T's Suggested Reading and Viewing from around the Web

Columnist David Harsanyi says Libertarians should be happy with the Sarah Palin choice. I am very happy with her.
Now the media has released Sarah Palin’s social security number, minus the last four, with her address and birth date. Gee, shouldn’t be that hard to get the last four now!
I am noticing a lot more of this. Once Hillary Clinton supporter now backing John McCain because the Democrat Party is being taken over by the types.
Here is a no brainer: Drilling for oil is going to be a major theme for the GOP in this election.
Barack Obama comes from the Chicago political environment filled with corruption. Here is the latest from Mayor Daley’s Chicago. I grew up in Illinois folks. It has always been that way.
Here is more from Chicago politics. Tony Rezko’s sentencing date draws near and rumor has it he may be cooperating with the feds. Rezko’s real estate dealings, his ties overseas – including an Iraq power plant deal – his work as Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich adviser and fund-raiser are all of interest to the feds.
Recently I told you liberals were happy with $4.00 gasoline. Here is another liberal Thomas Friedman. He says we need high gasoline prices to continue working on alternative energy!
Check this out…The Ballad of Sarah Palin: Queen of the Alaskan Frontier. Hilarious!
