I had several draft posts in preparation expressing outrage over the treatment the media and the Left have given Sarah, but after last night, they just seem silly. They're gone like a bad dream...

As Seth Leibsohn puts it at The Corner:

The idea, planted by the media and Democrats, that she wasn't vetted: gone, because not believable or important anymore.

The idea that her family is from Peyton Place or says one thing and does another: gone.

The idea that she's a lightweight: gone.

The idea that she was picked only because she was a woman or a strong conservative: gone.

This is all not just the power of a word fitly spoken, it's the dominance of character of the person doing the speaking. It shined through big last night, bigger than any media, political, or speech coach could make happen...
