This is it

September 4, 2008 - Steve Murch
Tonight’s the night, the end of the line ... never mind, I don’t want to rattle off a bunch of catch phrases. Suffice to say, John McCain’s speech at the Republican convention wraps up two weeks of talking, talking, and more talking.

And I’m not discussing the speakers at the convention. It’s the pundits, experts and opinion-expressers. Holy wah, turn down the volume.

Granted, tonight is all about John McCain. The GOP presidential candidate has a tough act(s) to follow. Not only did Sarah Palin jump onto the American scene with her speech, but going all the way back to last Monday everyone who has spoken at at the Democratic and Republican conventions has been intriguing and interesting.

And now McCain wraps it up. No pressure senator.

Regardless how McCain does, one thing is certain — Democrats will say it was awful and Republicans will say it was wonderful. Every evening and following morning since the first night of the Democratic convention, the pundits have lined up behind their party of choice — praising their own and blasting the other.

You know what? Aside from a few lines or philosophical differences all the speakers have been outstanding this year. They have been entertaining and engaging. All of them filled their roles in the manner they were supposed to.

And then there was one. Good luck, John McCain. America is watching.
