Will the Attacks Backfire? Interest in Palin Speech Soars

A week ago you might have figured the speech by the GOP VP Nominee would draw the nation’s collective yawn. Instead, there may be more interest in this than any other political speech in memory. CNN has a countdown ticker on the screen. They just reviewed the top 10 Google searches in the last 24 hours. They include such unlikely searches as (I may not have these word for word) “GOP Convention Speakers Schedule,” “Palin speech time,” and “Republican Convention Schedule.” What do you suppose those folks are looking for? The hour of Linda Lingle’s speech? And this is in addition to the more expected searches such as “Palin daughter” and the like. If Palin delivers tonight, the MSM and the left may have given her a surprisingly large audience.
