Speaking as a “professional speaker,” Sarah Palin delivered one of the best political speeches I’ve ever heard. I’m not endorsing anybody, and I’m not going to. I endorse Jesus. And I would never want to turn off a potential audience for Jesus by being overtly political.
But as a speaker, Sarah Palin electrified me. Her speech was funny. Cutting. Smart. Witty. Poignant. Charming. Poised. And well-delivered. Move over, Sen. Obama… there’s a new speaker in town… and she’s quite a lady. And she’s the best speaker of the four candidates (McPalin and O’Biden)… and better than Sen. Clinton too. I think she’s at least as good as Pres. Bill Clinton and… remember, I’m speaking rhetorically… she’s a little better than Jesse Jackson in the speech he gave (I think) 3 or so democratic conventions ago. I still think Pres. Reagan was the greatest speechmaker in my lifetime, though.
I’m going to have my seven year old daugher listen to Gov. Palin’s speech tomorrow. But I want her to see that the sky’s the limit for little girls.
America needs God. Politics is important, and I urge you to register and to vote. But even more, I urge you to a) walk faithfully with Jesus, and b) point others to Jesus, the only Savior.
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4, NKJV).
