They talk about massive unsustainable debt, and yet they […]

  • Palin piece in NY Times Magazine

    I found the NY Times Magazine profile of Sarah Palin pretty interesting. Here’s one of the reasons: In truth, few are underestimating Sarah Palin anymore.

  • Palin Speech

    I really liked it. Even better was the way the family was highlighted. The best defense is not to be distracted by side issues. Note.

  • Now I Know the Source of Her Ineffable Appeal

    According to the AP report, Governor Palin drinks what I’m drinking: “I never asked for anything more than a Diet Dr. Pepper once in a while,” Palin said as she returned to the governor’s office from her two-month odyssey as the GOP vice presidential nominee. (Emphasis added.)
