I’ll leave the political analysis to the pros and experts.
The whole family loved Palin’s speech (she was smooth, confident, articulate, and very relaxed — we wished she would have covered a couple of things more but what we got was fine, for starters). But the moment that got us off our seats and ROTFL was when Piper licked her hand to smooth little Trig’s hair. That was just PRECIOUS. And so normal. LOL.
