A Clear and Present Danger To the American Left  —  Notes from the convention:  —  Drafts of John McCain's acceptance speech have been bopping around the inside of the campaign for at least a few days, and a question is whether or how much it will be changed to account for the hurricane in New Orleans and the Gulf coast.
Ben Smith / The Politico:
Noonan, Murphy trash Palin on hot mic: 'It's over'  —  After a segment with NBC's Chuck Todd ended today, Republican consultant Mike Murphy and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan were caught on a live mike ridiculing the choice of Sarah Palin.  —  “It's over,” said Noonan …

Focus Group: Palin Was (Alarmingly) Strong  —  Several moderate-Democrat friends of mine have been emailing—few if any would ever vote for McCain—but all agree that Palin was very strong.  The more liberal among them are a little panicked.  —  I completely misjudged how negative she would be.

Clinton aides: Palin treatment sexist  —  ST. PAUL, Minn. — Sarah Palin found some unlikely allies Wednesday as leading academics and even former top aides to Hillary Rodham Clinton endorsed the Republican charge that John McCain's running mate has been subject to a sexist double standard by the news media and Democrats.
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
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.”

Palin on Earmarks: ‘We Did Well!!!’  —  Digging through Wasilla's municipal records is a lesson in the very essence of tedium.  You've got pages of proposals to rename streets, assess sewers, build skateboard parks, buy lawnmowers, rent “pop” machines, carve snowmobile trails …
