For those who didn’t get a chance to watch it live…
Update: Grace Wyler at Business Insider has compliled a list of her top ten lines from Governor Palin’s speech. Here are three of them, all directed at the GOP consultants who have all but destroyed the party of Ronald Reagan since the Gipper left office.
7. “If these experts keep losing elections, keep raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who should run in this party they should buck up and run or stay in the truck. The architects can head on back to the Lone Star State and put their name on the ballot.” [Clearly this is a reference to Karl Rove]
8. “The next election is 20 months away. Now is the time to furlough the consultants, and tune out the pollsters, send the focus groups home and toss the political scripts. Because if we truly know what we believe, we don’t need professionals to tell us.”
9. To Washington consultants: “Get over yourself. It’s not about you.”

One of my favorite moments was when she pulled out the Big Gulp. She knows how to tweak the Left like no other.
