His ending was strong

It would make sense that he was being so constantly interrupted by the protesters, given how distracted he seemed to be at times. But was that really the cause of it? I don’t think he managed to summon the ability to get past the prompter — he seemed like he was still using it.

Whatever the case, as a speech, on paper, it looks far better than it was spoken. Unfortunately, no one reads. That said, his run towards the end was impressive. Yes, it was Churchillian. I don’t think he’s given a better speech during his campaign.

But there were problems. He did the example thing, where he provides a story about your average American who’s having trouble feeding her dog (well, maybe not *that*, but close). He stammered on some lines, again, possibly because of protesters. But there’s something eminently strange about a man at a Republican convention highlighting his credentials as being more than just a Republican. And more, there’s something strange about how he attacks — his uneasy smile after he lunges, as though he didn’t really mean that, and hopes you’ll excuse him.

I just hope he paid attention to what got him the largest cheers of support.
