Primetime RNC Review + Ah-nold’s Speech
I’m not the biggest ah-nold fan in the world, but I have to give him credit for the great speech he gave last night. He was funny, did a good job of talking up W., and it’s always fantastic to hear someone who audaciously points out the obvious: that the United States is a beacon of freedom for the world and the greatest nation that is, has ever been, or likely ever will be.
On the other hand, I wouldn’t advise the Bush twins to quit their day jobs (wait, do they have day jobs?) and go into stand-up comedy. Frankly, I didn’t think they were very good and I’m a little surprised their lame act made it to prime time without someone cluing them in.
Laura Bush’s speech seemed pretty tame compared to Schwarzenegger’s potent time at the podium, but she was targeting a different crowd. Laura was up there to bring in the “soccer moms” and humanize W. a bit and while she certainly couldn’t sling red meat like Arnold or Rudy, I think she earned a primetime slot.
