One Very Off Moment  —  The one moment that stays with me tonight, oddly enough, was not Palin's speech.  It was a line from Giuliani, a New York mayor with a young third wife and gay friends, mocking a “cosmopolitan” who was brought up by a single mother.  It was that Barack Obama's rise could “only happen in America.”
