JAYLY NEWS.......Thursday a.m.
First thing First: as a prominent show business agent said in reviewing Sarah Palin's performance Wednesday evening, "SHE CRUSHED!"
And truly she did.
But even more enjoyable than Palin's mastery of stage last night was the hilarious glumness and nastiness of the reactions by virtually all the "journalists" on TV: Keith Olberwellian, Chrissy Matthews, Gene Obama Robertson, Rachel Mad-Ow, et. al. all looked and sounded like children who had just lost their best friend.
And maybe they have: little Barack.
"SHE WAS MEAN!"
"SHE WAS NASTY!"
"SHE WAS SARCASTIC!"
"SHE WAS NEGATIVE!"
Translation: she was EFFECTIVE.
Sarah Palin obviously has Democrats scared to death - the most compelling evidence she was a good choice.
However...now comes the hard part: Sarah Palin must now face the Media Assasins without a script, teleprompter, and protection. She will be out there on her own, cross-examined by hardened media killers - every one of whom is seeking a career-making opportunity to be the one who brings her down in flames.
This is why it will take circa 10 days more to know how Sarah Palin truly plays: the first round of post-convention polling, plus her first round of full-contact scrimmages with her sworn blood enemies (MSNBC, CNN, Boston Globe, NY Times, Wash Post, CBS, ABC, et. al.)
That said though, Sarah Palin's Opening Night was a Smash...in the face of Democrats.
