Challies on Palin

This years presidential race promises to be one of the most intriguing ever...and not just because i live here now! John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin as his running mate has just about knocked Obama and the Democrats off the front page for the first time in months.

Her speech two nights ago at the RNC was almost universally well received, except on the rabidly liberal news stations, which seem to be intent on throwing their journalistic integrity away rather than just losing it. MSNBC is a case in point. last friday as Palin was giving her maiden VP candidate speech, the breaking news ticker said something like, 'Palin: How many houses does she add to the Republican ticket?' This wasn't a comment section of the show, this was the way they covered breaking headline news.

Challies has got an excellent article on her here.

Oh, and Hanna is just starting to arrive, we've got heavy rain and some winds here at the moment from the outlying clouds, and it should be with us for real in about fourteen to sixteen hours. I'm becoming vaguely obsessed with the weather channel website, which is now in my eight most visited websites (thank you Google Chrome)
