As for content, like I said, the speech has been written for her. In fact, it was already written for a generic VP candidate long ago and modified slightly to make it less “masculine”, whatever that means.
There was a flutter of attention when McCain campaign manager Rick Davis told a group of Post reporters and editors yesterday that his team was having to rework the vice presidential acceptance speech because the original draft, prepared before Gov. Sarah Palin was chosen, was too "masculine." While we all wondered to ourselves what might make a speech masculine or feminine, no one batted an eye at the underlying revelation: that the campaign was writing the nominee's speech before knowing who the nominee would be.So if she can read a teleprompter, I guess she passes.
Update: And she did work on the air in television broadcasting at one point, so she should do just swell.
