Conservatives call the selection of Sarah Palin “cynical.” Ouch.
Conservatives Mike Murphy + Peggy Noonan (Reagan’s speech writer) criticize McCain’s pick of Sarah PalinSeptember 4, 2008
Unfortunately, the McCain camp has just stitched together sound bites from Sarah Palin’s speech last night, which ran for 30 minutes. Would have been better not to edit it, I think, but instead just give the entire speech verbatim.
Also, the McCain camp has apparently just taken the copyrighted footage of CSPAN or some other network and tried to crop out their logo and “ticker” at the bottom of the screen. That’s why Sarah Palin looks like her body has been totally cut off. On several occasions, you see the network “ticker” bleed through the McCain camp’s crop job.
