McCain’s Mom is Republican MVP

The coolest figure by far at the Republican National Convention (at an otherwise sometimes robotic display of partisanship – "Drill, baby, drill!" was the cry of the audience at one point) was John McCain’s Mom – vibrant, elegant, and enthusiastic in every molecule of her 96-year-old body.

Fred Thompson was a bit too partisan, but did an extraordinary job highlighting the soundness of conservative fiscal policies.  He was the Hillary of Republicans, a Presidential candidate whose energetic Presidential performance at the Convention was far stronger than any performance during the campaign trail.

Thompson pointed out the fallacy of Democratic pandering by claiming they won’t raise people’s taxes, only "businesses", as if raising taxes on "businesses" wouldn’t have an impact on those who consume the products of the businesses.  "You see, we are not going to take water from your side of the bucket.  We are going to take water from the other side of the bucket."
