I'm shaking right now, I'm so excited. I just saw Phyllis Schlafly (the political activist known for her best-selling book A Choice, Not An Echo as well as her outspoken opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment) speak at the Republican National Coalition for Life event! And though Gov. Sarah Palin was supposed to speak as well, they had a pretty good pinch hitter — Laura Ingraham. I can't believe I was in the front row. I mean, I did graduate work on the rhetoric of Phyllis Schlafly. Wow.
I have so much to say about the event, what she said, how many times Code Pink made it on stage, how they were sung from the room with "God Bless America" by a bunch of star-spangled Republicans full of love, and how well Phyllis handled it, and I will! Soon! I'm dashing off to the convention hall now, but let's just say everyone in that room today agrees that Gov. Palin is being treated differently because she's a woman — and they're fired up and ready to vote for her all the more.
I'll have more news on the Life event, the Politico panel I went to this morning, the speeches tonight and more coming soon!
