And the worst line of the night...

Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown.

And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves.

I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities.

Obama's decision to go to the trenches and work with the poor is my favorite thing about him. Palin's decision to say this solidifies the idea the Republicans could care less about the poor. (Were the poor or struggling families mentioned at all tonight?)

5.7% of families in Wasilla live below the poverty line, according to Wikipedia.

Yeah, that sounds about like Chicago's South Side. (I wonder what that number is in the neighborhoods Barack Obama worked in. 90%? More?)

Palin, McCain, and their party don't get it. This speech solidified it. Obama's choice to be a community organizer shows his values are immensely Christian. Have you noticed, Gov. Palin, how often Jesus discusses the poor? Those who value those teachings go to where the poor are and work with them. You know, in the community. Organizing it.
