Well its almost time! Sarahs going to be giving her big speech in a little bit and everyones pretty excited. I'm all changed into this suit, and earlier they had me practice sitting in the seat they got for me. I guess the camera is going to switch to me sometimes, theres this little guy who points at me whenever I'm about to be on TV. Thats cool, honestly Id rather be left off it all together tho.
See my plan is to write up the speech while Sarah gives it. She had me read it earlier but honestly I kind of just skimmed it because Hockey Tonight was on. So itll be as much a surprise to me as you! They got me a blackberry that I can use for it, its pretty cool. Steve said I'd need it to run my foundation once Sarahs vice president (their still getting it set up but its going to be about raising awareness). I also have a few tallboys in Trig's diper bag so Im pretty well set up here, I just got to keep my head down and duck that g**d*** camera.
9:40 - OK going to my seat. I just said goodbye to Sarah back stage, I think Coach K was introducing her!? I usually dont see that guy til March, suddenly hes everywhere! It was pretty aewsome what he did with those boys in china, he definitly earned his spot here.
9:49 - This Hawaii (sp?) lady is alright. Who would've thought the governor of a state with such gay license plates would be so cool? She should fix those plates tho... (seriously)
9:58 - Just sat down. Cindy always smells like wintergreen skoal, its nice.
10:01 - Rudy! No offense to Mr. McCain, this guy is a badass. I bet you I could whip the ass of every body in this room but Rudy would give me a run for my money.
10:07 - Community organizer! That is some funny s***.
10:14 - OK this speech is getting kind of confusing, Im still really psyched tho. ZERO! ZERO!
10:20 - Bin laden, man I am sick of that guy. Im learning a lot from this speech, I cant believe Obama voted to wiretap us!
10:21 - wait forget that one
10:25 - I wish Rudy would talk about 9-11 more. I mean for politics experts, we know, but I think a lot of other people dont realize Rudy was mayor then.
10:27 - gotta figure out where to put these fallen soldiers. Stuck the first two behind the chair legs but now im out of room.
10:29 - WOW Rudy was great. I have to admit I was surprised to hear how little experience obama has. I thought he was senator? I might of been thinking of Martin Luther King.
10:30 - YEAH Sarah bear! Theres my girl! Man she is looking _hot_ in that skirt. also those stairs by the stage = REALLY cool
10:32 - I think shes officially in now. losening my tie.
10:34 - Im embarassed to say it, but I didnt realize "country first" was from the Bible until right now. Sarah you teach me something every day
10:36 - awful proud of Track and Briss and Will an Piper & Trig right now. man, its hard to clap with a baby tho
10:39 - I cant get over those stairs, it keeps changing colors!
10:41 - s*** I did not see that coming (kicked over my empties getting up too). Really cool tho, Rudy is right behind me and was clapping!
10:43 - people never get tired of that hockey mom joke, its a good one. Reminds me though, that hockey dad from the news? I totally knew that guy before he moved. True story.
10:44 - community organizer still REALLY FUNNY. maybe their selling tshirts?
10:50 - money stuff is kind of over my head but I know its important. maybe it would be easier to explain that everyone in Alaska gets $1000 free once a year? I mean obviously you did a good job with the budget if you can do that right?
10:54 - Sarah made me promise not to make any jokes when she talks about drilling but I thought up one that is SO GOOD. Arghhhhh
10:55 - really wish I brought my stadium buddy
10:58 - more taxes + bigger goverment = weaker America. its that simple, maybe you should have thought about how Sarah was a debater, democraps! man she has got me fired up
11:00 - OK Cyndi just put her hand on my leg for a second, I think it was an accident but Im not sure. this is weird.
11:04 - Pretty sure it was an accident, shes not looking at me at all. OK back to the speech, I think Sarahs talking about Mr. McCain now. Definitely him or Sean Connery's character from The Rock, not sure yet.
11:08 - it turns out it was Mr. McCain
11:09 - WOOOOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! SARAH! OVER HERE SARAH!! HEY SARAH!!!! WOOOOOO!
11:14 - OK just got off stage. MAN what a rush, that was really cool. I hate having to shake hands with Mr. McCain tho, his are always covered in Aspercreme. anyway gotta go find the john
11:16 - Well I guess thats it for tonight. Sarah I thought you hit it out of the park. I am so proud of you, you did great, girl! Im sure your going to be busy with reporters and stuff, I think I am going to go find the bar but I'll see you back at the hotel. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
