A reader writes, “Don’t overthink it. She absolutely kills. No wonder Democrats curse Republicans as evil geniuses.”
And, to go along with that note, another one (from a lady): “I’m not a feminist, and in fact think most of them are nuts. That said, when Governor Palin walked onto the stage, I teared up. I was surprised by my reaction. I think that’s the reason Governor Palin is up there.”
Another: “I have never been more energized by a national Republican candidate in my life.”
Finally, a rather less lofty point. I said that this year’s tickets included people from Alaska and Hawaii, the 49th and 50th states. Several readers have written to say, “Don’t forget the 48th — where McCain is from.” And they add: “Besides which, Biden’s from the first state!”
An extreme year, where such numbers are concerned . . .
