Bloviation and substance
I did not watch Governor Sarah Palin’s speech last evening at the Republican Convention.
Nor, for that matter did I watch the speeches of Senators Obama and Biden.
The Englishman in me finds these Conventions to be tedious.
I dislike the “hoopla”; the scripting; the bloviating; and the inevitable applause.
I see the Conventions (Democratic and Republican) to be utterly phony and silly.
But I did read the “pistol packin’ momma’s” speech today.
The pundits, the press and the bloggers swooned about Gov. Palin’s performance.
But I found her words to be filled with style, sans substance.
Not a word about our collapsing economy; or about health care, pensions, employment and our wars.
A ton of rhetoric. Not an ounce of wisdom.
