Last night, the world got its formal introduction to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. A speech that had its moments of humor and traditional red meat, also defined her upcoming role in the election. It seems as if she will play the standard role of the VP candidate, the attack dog. It will be interesting to see how this plays with the general electorate, but I know it played well to the base of the party.

One of the funnest moments of the speech had to be when the camera focused in on Palin's youngest daughter Piper who was holding the youngest son Trig. Piper must have thought that Trig's hair was not quite right because she started to fix it by running her hand over his head. This, however, did not work to her satisfaction. She then proceeded to lick her entire hand and comb over his hair with her palm. I've got to admit that Mrs. Palin lost my wife and me for a few minutes as we laughed our way through the innocence of the moment. (Video Link)

If you watched the speech last night and you would like to share your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment.

I found the funniest moment to be *after* the speach. McCain came out and seemed to be confused about who his running mate is. He kept saying to Mr. Palin various forms of "good job". Then, when he said to the crowd "don't you think we made a good choice," instead of turning to his left, where Sarah was, he turned to his right, where her husband was, and had to turn all the way around to get to the right person.
