Live blog of the most anticipated convention speech in our lifetimes.

Anderson Cooper, CNN: “The excitement here is palpable.”
Shep Smith, Fox: “I have never been so excited about speech in my life. I can’t wait.”
Chris Wallace, Fox: “Oh, this is big, I’m excited, and that doesn’t happen at conventions very often.”

I feel like I did at 4:30 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday in 2000: one hour before the Rammies kicked off against the Titans.

The left expect her, apparently, to throw up on the podium, rip off her dress, and do a pole dance with a bear skin rug. Talk about lowering expectations.

For my part, I think she needs to stay away from direct attacks on the media. Side glances at the left in general and Barack Obama in particular.

She does not have to hit a “home run.” Expectations are lower than whale waste. She has to simply be competent, human, ruggedly feminine, and likable.

My fingers are crossed.
