I had to watch the Palin 'hockey mom' speech last night, and as much as I expected the usual Obama bashing that the republicans like to do, I was most struck by the creepy fanaticism of the crowd- all white, pasty (old) faces chanting 'Drill, baby drill' and the booing, and laughing at their own lame joke about how Obama was a 'community organizer'- seemed like a bunch of disrespectful frat boys. Actually it reminded me of that dream sequence in Rosemary's Baby when the devils are impregnating her- I wish I could find a clip of it. Scary. Now I know the conventions are all about celebrating your cause, but they really got rowdy in an unpleasant way. I am looking forward to the debates when Palin won't be able to rely on her (so far only) subjects of her large family and McCain's war record. But damn she does look alot like Tina Fey!
