A round-up opinion piece on the Republican Convention

Useful. From Jules Crittenden.


Hey, no fair, Obama’s the change guy!

and from Gerard Baker at the Times in London:

The best line I heard about Sarah Palin during the frenzied orgy of chauvinist condescension and gutter-crawling journalistic intrusion that greeted her nomination for vice-president a week ago came from a correspondent who knows a thing or two about Alaska.

“What’s the difference between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama?”

“One is a well turned-out, good-looking, and let’s be honest, pretty sexy piece of eye-candy.

“The other kills her own food."

h/t Tim Blair.

The US Presidential election has sparked into a real contest.

Hi Gordo,

I'd be interested to hear a well-written analysis of what you don't like about Obama's policies.

Most of what you publish about US politics sounds like the Republican talking-point-of-the-week, and I can't help but think you've thought through this stuff more carefully than the sound-bite level.

Cheers mate,
