Neilsen: Obama's speech 38 million viewers. Palin's speech 37 million. Wow.
The right side of the internets sure is enthused about Sarah. More at Dirty Harry's.
Polls show people believe reporters want to damage her. People aren't stupid.

Gloria Steinem hates her feminist sister Palin. Is the only correct way to be a "liberated woman" to be a screeching angry victimized lesbian abortion-loving man-hating bitch? Or is it a wonderful thing that women can chose to be and do what they want?

Quote from Henninger:
I asked a number of women this week to account for Sarah Palin's sudden appeal. Here are the common threads.
The angry woman-as-victim drives them nuts. They hate victimology. As one woman said, "The point is that across the ages women have been doing pretty much what Sarah Palin has been doing: bearing children, feeding families, bringing in an income, working to improve their communities."
Another woman said, "Her story reflects a more normal reality" of active women; "the harder you work, the luckier you get." Hillary Clinton still plays the victim card. Sarah Palin gives off no victim vibes. These women mentioned her grit, determination and character.
They also said the Roe v. Wade litmus test has become too knee-jerk. Simply writing off Sarah Palin as "pro-life" caricatures pregnancy and motherhood.
