More From the Colosseum

I just listened to Governor Sarah Palin’s speech at the Republican National Convention. Aside from the folksy introduction of her family, it was more of the same condescending bombast which marked the rest of the evening’s speakers. She was less vociferous, but no less vitriolic - albeit a sugary vitriol, cheerfully delivered.

After viewing tonight’s spectacle, the following is clear to me:

We are a country deeply divided.
We are not divided into red states and blue states.
We are divided on culture, principles and values.
We are divided on the issues.

Make no mistake that the national election on November 4th is important - not just for who we elect as President and Vice President in the Executive Branch, but for who we elect to Congress in the Legislative Branch as well. And the results of those elections will determine the population and course of the Judicial Branch for decades to come.
