I'm just going to throw this out there, and you all can decide whatever you want to about it. This was Rush Limbaugh today, during his opening monologue, explaining what he thought about Palin's speech. I guess to his credit, he is careful to say that he hasn't actually seen the speech as it was performed by Palin, because I am pretty sure no one is defending that today. But still... well, listen for yourself.
Limbaugh: Trump picking Sarah Palin, or Palin deciding to endorse Trump just exacerbates it. And by the way, Palin is going to help me make my point today, because I read the transcript from the speech that she made, and, uh, it's actually, I saw people pan it, say that she looked like she lost her place, she was reading cue cards, she didn't seem to be all there... I didn't see it, but I read the transcript and I'm telling you, it is... I don't want to overdo it [mumble] brilliant, but man, I'll tell ya, she's got substantive, logical reasons for doing what she's doing. And she explained it yesterday for anybody who really wanted to pay attention to listen to it.
Well, that's certainly one way to look at it.
