Well, according to actor-turned-politician Fred Thompson thinks we left-wingers are tearing up Palin because of our intense "panic."
Fred Thompson led the charge, berating "Washington pundits and media big shots" who have questioned her experience as a first-term governor of Alaska.
"She is from a small town, with small-town values, but that's not good enough for those folks who are attacking her and her family," he said to cheers."Let's be clear ... the selection of Gov. Palin has the other side and their friends in the media in a state of panic. She is a courageous, successful reformer who is not afraid to take on the establishment," he added.
I can't really speak for anyone else, but I'm pretty sure the feeling that has been growing since John McCain threw his "Hail Mary" VP pick has not been panic. More like elation. Or disbelief. Not panic.
On another note, some photographer friends of You Ain't No Picasso, one of my main music blogs, were maced and arrested for taking pictures of the rioting outside of the RNC. Are you serious?? This is getting a little absurd.
