Standout Quotes from the RNC, Day 3

This'll be a slightly abbreviated version, since I missed Steele's, Romney's, and Huckabee's speeches.

Yeah, I know. Bad blogger. Gimme a break. I was schmoozing.

Anyway. I caught Rudy.

Mayor Rudy Giuliani (on Obama's lack of experience):

His rise is remarkable in its own right - it's the kind of thing that could happen only in America.
Giuliani (again on Obama's experience):

We agree with Joe Biden.
The Xcel Center audience (chanting):

Drill, baby, drill! Drill, baby, drill!
Giuliani (on Obama struggling to form an opinion on the Russia-Georgia fighting):

Later, after discussing it with his 300 foreign policy advisors, he changed his position and suggested that the "the UN Security Council," could find a solution. Apparently, none of his 300 advisors told him that Russia has a veto on any UN action. Finally Obama put out a statement that looked ... well, it looked a lot like John McCain's.

Here's some free advice: Sen. Obama, next time just call John McCain.
Gov. Sarah Palin:

And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves.
Xcel Center crowd (chanting and pointing at the MSNBC booth, in response to a Palin comment about liberal media):


...this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.

Harry Reid (loud, lengthy booing), the Majority Leader of the current do-nothing Senate, not long ago summed up his feelings about our nominee.

He said, quote, "I can't stand John McCain." Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps no accolade we hear this week is better proof that we've chosen the right man. Clearly what the Majority Leader was driving at is that he can't stand up to John McCain.
