With grave suspicion and reservations, I nonetheless rejoice that the fading embers of conservatism may have indeed caught fire once more. That fireball is Gov.Sarah Palin of Alaska , I pray the next Vice President of the United States . Now I know why I have seen no one with any guts in the Republican Party in so long: the governor of Alaska has them all. Her speech last night was clearly a grand slam out-of-the-park home run. America , we have liftoff!
By selecting Gov. Palin to be his running mate, Sen. McCain has finally electrified the conservative base -- the very base he desperately needs to defeat Sen.Obama in November. I, for one, am greatly relieved and inspired by her message, delivery, confidence, poise, class and grace.
To borrow a relative quote from Michelle Obama, with the selection of Gov. Palin, itís the first time in quite some time that Iím proud of the Republican Party.
Gov. Palin is a true outsider, a real maverick. She lacks Washington , D.C. political experience. Thatís good. No, thatís excellent. It is her lack of D.C. political experience that is the refreshing outsider change America so desperately needs and wants.
Palin made it clear that she is like the rest of us, noting how Fedzilla is bloated, broken, ineffective, and wasteful. Our professional politicians no longer work for us, but instead represent K Street bandit lobbyists. These scoundrels deserve our scorn, anger and contempt, and, quite honestly, a big, old pink slip, and Sarah appears to be the tough leader we seek to get the job done.
The level of disgust and distrust across America is appalling and, I believe, unprecedented. A recent poll indicated the Nancy Pelosi-led Congressí approval rating is at an abysmal record low of nine percent. That it is even that high shows how clueless and disconnected the lunatic fringe is.
America needs more outsiders in Washington , D.C. now more than ever. We need more tough, standup hockey moms like Governor Sarah Palin. We need more ordinary Americans to springboard from small city councils to the halls of congress and beyond. We need welders, cops, teachers, ditch diggers, business people, construction workers, secretaries, auto mechanics, and guitar slingers to come to Washington , D.C. and replant the good old "We the People" tree.
Americans need to replace the professional politicians who have rigged and ruined the system to exclude ordinary citizens from participating in this experiment in self-government. My advice is to get angry and vote them all out. The professional punk politicians are the problem, not the solution.
We need fewer lawyers in Washington . Lawyers have created a masturbatory legal system by raping our justice system. Itís refreshing to see that neither Sen. McCain nor Gov. Palin is a lawyer. This could be a good start back towards an experiment in self-government. Count me in.
We need fewer bureaucrats who accomplish nothing but sustaining and growing Fedzilla. Bureaucrats create reams of regulations, rules, and requirements that strangle innovation and punish producers. I expect Vice President Palin to lead the charge with a battering ram to smash in the bureaucratic doors that impede progress instead of enabling it. I had a bumper crop of crowbars this year. I'll donate them all to those willing to swing them.
Itís wrong to suggest that just because Gov. Palin is not a career D.C. politician that she lacks the experience and intelligence to lead the nation. She clearly has more executive management experience than Sen. Obama, who has zero experience at running anything. Heís not qualified to run an all-night donut shop, much less America .
Gov. Palin is an executive. The mark of an effective executive is to surround herself with bright, talented, capable professionals who share her vision to accurately represent the people they work for: Americans. Chief Executive Officers need to be visionary leaders, not tacticians who micromanage. Her experience demonstrates she is prepared to lead if necessary.
Gov. Palin represents real hope and change. In her case, hope and change are not simply hollow words. As a city councilwoman, mayor and governor, she has achieved tangible results. She exudes energy and passion, has the experience and the skills, and is ready for the job. I couldnít be more excited for America .
In addition to her executive experience, and based on unbiased, genuine research, Gov. Palin concludes that global warming is a fraud, supports drilling for oil in the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge, hunts and fishes, and is a member of the National Rifle Association. Whatís not to like?
Those pundits and Fedzilla fanatics who proclaim Gov.Palin has no experience to run the country are the very punks who want to continue to feed Fedzilla. They advocate taking more of our paychecks, wasting more of hard earned money, and not being held accountable. I would like to buy these Fedzilla punks a one-way ticket on the express train to Hell.
President Reagan would surely be proud of Sen. McCainís choice of Gov. Palin to be his running mate. President Reaganís words so many years ago ring true once again: it's morning in America .
Last night, a political savior may have arrived. Ted Nugent at your service,Vice President-to-be Palin. Iím your biggest fan. Letís rock.
And here's his response to OBama's speech last week.....
While Senator Obama was giving his acceptance speech at Invesco Field in Denver to tens of thousands of Fedzilla supporting numbskulls, I was busy pummeling musical fun gluttons at the New York State Fair with my R&B spirit-infested guitar as I've done over 6,000 times so far in my gravity-defying career.
My ace crew taped Senator Obama's speech so that I could watch it after I got off stage and now I'm slamming this out on my laptop. I won't go away. Write that down. Again.
Before I slice and dice the Obaminator's speech, let's get one thing clear. Though the Obaminator may be treated like a rockstar, he has much more in common with a one hit wonder, no talent pop star.
The Obaminator brought in Fedzilla musicians Sheryl Crowe and Stevie Wonder to electrify the throngs of Fedzilla supporters. Political ideologies aside, these gentlemen and their killer musicians are the real McCoy when it comes to music, and I salute them for that.
The title of rockstar is meaningless and petty, and typically indicative of a fashion-driven dope. Like those dedicated musicians still celebrating our honed craft 50 plus years later, it is the soul and genuine emotion and authority of the music of our black heroes like Bo Diddly and Chuck Berry that still lives on in my musical dreams that puts timeless integrity into every glowing guitar lick. Not the transparent symbolism of celebrity or rockstar sillyness. Go figure.
The musical Gods have indeed blessed me and I continue to create musical fire on the best tour of my life in 2008 by playing blistering rhythm and blues music to well over a billion people around the world, so far. Unlike the windjammer Obaminator, my music is black enough I have a talent that has been honed through sheer will power, sweat and persistence. That's the American Dream. I wouldn't dare let Fedzilla tamper with my dream.
The Obaminator will say anything, change any position, and obfuscate his socialist intentions and beliefs to get elected. I've never compromised or wavered on my musical vision. I only play music that singes the pure, aboriginal musical soul.
As I've written before on HUMAN EVENTS, in my cursory review of the history of presidential politics, the Obominator is the least qualified person in the history of America to run for president, and his speech proved it once again. With all the believability of a talking head beauty queen, no one buys it for a minute that he is going to save the children, end world poverty or bring peace to humankind.
Pure condescending fluff.
I wasn't expecting a detailed policy speech from the Obaminator; that's not the purpose of a presidential acceptance speech. The purpose was to electrify the Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party.
The Obaminator gave an over-the-top inspiring speech if you are a member of the
Fedzilla addicted, bloodsucker, anti-free market, European socialist cult of denial of America.
In the America facing a pandemic of self imposed obesity and gluttonous, irresponsible credit card debt, it is understandable how Obama's celebration of such behavior resonated.
If you're a rugged individualist, pro-free market, freedom loving, lower tax and less spending supporting capitalist, you had to shake your head in painful disbelief over how far left the Socialist Party has plummeted. President Kennedy, who supported lower taxes and stood up to the Commies in Cuba, would surely hang his head in shame and disbelief that this convention asks not what it can do for its country, but what its country must do for them. Shameful.
No one wants to be in the Iraq War, but the reality is that we are, and therefore, we must fight to win it. No timetable for withdrawal, total warfare should our military policy. Turning and running like we did in Mogadishu in 1993 under President Bubba Clinton's failed military policies emboldened the very enemies America is fighting today.
He covered all the liberal bases in the cloudy, vague terms we've become used to from his predecessors, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Boiling this down in the Tedfurnace, it's easy to get down to this. He favors gay marriage, he wants to renew the idiotic "assault weapons" ban, spend us into bankruptcy with socialized medicine and -- get this -- give the GI bill to people who serve their "communities."
Hey, pal: the GI Bill is for those who wore the uniform, not tye-died jeans and a dirty t-shirt.
Listening to the internationalist Obaminator speak made me shudder for the safety and security of America. It appears the Obaminator is more concerned about shoveling almost a trillion dollars of our tax dollars to the United Nations for world wastefare programs than he and Senator Biden are about defending America. Good grief.
The Obaminator spoke of Fedzilla taking over the nation's health care. He believes Fedzilla can do it better, cheaper, more effective and provide better health care than the free market. Only a bloated Michael Moore illiterate stooge could possibly believe this lie and risk putting the nation's health care under the care of Doctor Fedzilla. Assisted suicide is one thing; engineered suicide is beyond the pale.
The Obominator was right when he said that government can't solve all the problems. The federal government meddling creates social and cultural problems, ruins individuals, and destroys communities. I give you Lyndon Johnson's Great Society, which has been an abysmal failure to eradicate poverty.
Communities solve community problems. Families solve family problems. Individuals solve individual problems. Responsible people know that if you want to solve domestic problems, the first obstacle to remove from the equation is Fedzilla.
It was refreshing to hear that the Obominator wants to reduce the dependence on foreign energy. Welcome to the energy party, pal. Drill here and drill near is the near term answer. Long term energy solutions do not include wind, solar or biofuels. Nuclear energy is the key to energy independence. Nuke me.
The Obominator said he would cut taxes for 95% of Americans. Cutting taxes for everyone-businesses large and small and individual Americans-coupled with a dramatic cut in government spending is the key to long-term success. Lower taxes and less government spending is fuel in the tank of America. But if he's cutting taxes for 95% of Americans, he's going to raise taxes on those 5% who already pay the vast majority of the taxes that flow into Fedzilla. Which means they'll be better at finding ways to protect their money and Fedzilla will go deeper in debt.
The Obominator spoke of government meddling in health care, education and economy. None of these three key components to the American way of life can be maximized by central planning out of Washington DC. Less meddling by Fedzilla will reduce healthcare costs, improve education, and ignite an economic conflagration.
Let us pray for America that the Obaminator is a flash in the political pan. Once the American public realizes the only substance to his message is higher taxes and more government spending and that he has zero experience that qualifies him to be the leader of the free world, he will hopefully become a political footnote and we can then get back to the tough business of running the nation.
Senator Obama is not ready to lead anyone who isn't a trendy rock fan looking for symbolism over substance.

Actually he would make a good hatchet man for govt wastefull spending and unnecessary agencies. Hmmmm, on second thought the job market is tough enough, I don't need an additional half million govt bureaucrats suddenly competing for a job...

Wouldn't it be great if the Ted-ster ran for Mayor of Detroit now that Kwame the Thug is gone? God, what a change that would be! Unfortunately, he is still having too much fun touring to be tied down into a cesspool like the Detroit Mayors office...
