Fact checking Palin's speech
I'm not so sure it was a good speech, it was good in the sense that she applause at all the right spots. But much of it was really just sound byte bullshit. It seems that's what sells though.
One example (I'll try to do some more examples later) is when she said.
"There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you where winning meant survival and losing meant death".
Of course McCain lost (that's how you become a POW, you lose) but survived so she was using just a little bit of hyperbole.
The crowd loved it though.
