Palin's acceptance speech: near-perfect. Too bad the organizers let China-boy Rudy intrude on her time.
After she got through the formalities and started listing her actions and philosophies as governor, purely perfect.
"End our dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart. ... We cannot leave ourselves at the mercy of foreign suppliers."

Sidenote: Amid all the superficial talk about this 'historic' election based on race and sex, it strikes me that this year's R ticket is superficially historic in another way.
MC McCain is the first honestly bald candidate since Eisenhower (leaving out Jerry Ford who didn't really mean to be President) and Palin is the first honestly bespectacled candidate since Goldwater.
Most politicians are willing to be seen wearing glasses when reading a document, but take them off or use contacts for public appearances. Palin makes a point of wearing spectacles all the time.
Both of these are healthy signs that the era of absolute control by the TV camera has faded if not ended.
