McCain Delivers Great Speech

with one comment

Despite a boring and blah first two speakers, Senator Lindsey Graham, (R-SC) and Governor Tom Ridge (R-Pa), the night evolved into bringing the Republicans together. In a touching speech, John McCain told his life story, his plans, his policies, and showed what a remarkable man he was. For the for the second time, second night in a row, I was moved to tears by a political speech. This was the best I’ve seen McCain talk but I really don’t think he’s a great speaker. Give me Sarah Palin any day!

Just for the liberally hearing-disabled with genetic lack of comprehension, the Architect, Karl Rove kept track of everything that John McCain’s speech contained:

  • 67 Paragraphs in McCain’s presidential acceptance speech
  • 19 Paragraphs were about kitchen table issues, (what the liberals were complaining about) jobs, health care, education
  • 11 Paragraphs were humbly told about his personal biography, his career, his time in a Vietnam Hanoi Hilton
  • 8 Paragraphs were about foreign policy
  • 6 Paragraphs about McCain being a “maverick reformer”
  • 6 Paragraphs about political bipartisanship (McCain better not compromised)
  • 6 Paragraphs were targeting Obama – with one paragraph praising him and five paragraphs dissing him.
  • 3 Paragraphs devoted to Palin
  • 8 Paragraphs saying hello, goodbye, thanks

McCain had the Republicans off their seats and jumping in an excitement! That’s a good thing. Republicans are once again united with the goal of winning the White House this time with the Gipper smiling from heaven!

  1. An inredible speech, indeed. It took me a good 10 or 15 minutes to stop comparing it to the mind-blowing, Reaganesque performance of Gov. Palin, but once I did, it just kept getting better.

    The line about pork was great. “I will make them famous and you will know their names!”

    Humble, witty, reassuring, positive. All the things the left has abandoned.

    And his closing remarks can only be summed up in one word – Churchill.
