Strong Speech Doesn't Answer Readiness Questions.

As noted below, I didn't watch Palin last night, thank God.  And, since I didn't I think I will try not to comment too much or react to something I didn't see.  

Also, I have a busy morning/day and will not be able to blog too much.  Here is an editorial in the Washington Post which concludes with this.
To question her readiness is not to doubt her talent or intelligence; nor is it a reflection of gender bias, snobbery or any of the other sins that have been ascribed to those who worry about Ms. Palin as vice president. Ms. Palin last night noted tartly "that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone." It is a good applause line. But the fact is that Ms. Palin has an astonishingly thin résumé -- mayor of a small town, governor of a sparsely populated state for less than two years -- for someone hoping to ascend to national leadership. The country will need to hear much more from Ms. Palin before being convinced of the soundness of Mr. McCain's judgment.
