Quotable: On Sarah Palin, Again

What Canada's bloggers are saying about Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's introductory performance yesterday at the Republican Party's national convention:

The right wing claptrap she dished for the benefit of the Republican base is what America should be trying to deliver itself from, not embrace. The ideology inherent in Palin's line of thinking will make America more, rather than less unilateral in its approach. In some respects she out-Bushes Bush.

Obama is calling for healing and reconciliation. Palin seems determined to reignite the culture wars that pit small town America against urban America. Her rhetorical knifework aimed at Obama was delivered without an angry edge - 
but when you read the text there is no mistaking that this was a nasty speech.

Kevin Brennen at Peace Order and Good Government adds:

The one thing this made clear, if there was any doubt, is that the Republicans have nothing left but attempts to co-opt Obama's message combined with culture war. The next 60 days are going to get very nasty indeed. In the end, I don't think it will be enough. They've already conceded the need for change. Attacks on Obama do nothing to convince people they can deliver it.
