Sarah Palin was warned about the potential for vicious attacks from
McCain's opponents. She is no shrinking violet though. William Kristol posted this:
"A nervous young McCain staffer took it upon himself to explain to Palin the facts of life in a national campaign, the intense scrutiny she'd be under from the media, the viciousness of the assault that she'd be facing, etc." Here is what she had to say,
Palin: "Thanks for the warning. By the way, do you know what they say the difference is between a hockey mom and a Pit Bull?"
McCain aide: "No, Governor."
Palin: "A hockey mom wears lipstick."
You have got to say she has chutzpah!
I am eagerly anticipating her speech tonight. Will we see the same confidence we saw in her on Friday?
