Factchecking Palin  —  I thought Palin's speech was quite good: well-written, well delivered.  And, as I said earlier, I think she's a genuinely engaging person, and comes across very well.  There were just a couple of problems.  One, which I have seen people notice, but which I suspect …

Pointlets on Palin  —  1. She's one of the most talented politicians in America — a natural.  You can't learn that kind of thing.  You simply have it (or you don't).  I suppose Sarah Palin will get better as a politician.  But she's damn good now.  She will not hit her stride.
