Goodbye Sarah

The Palin announcement comes as a shock. Either she's setting herself up for a run at 2012 or the media and the popular culture has effectively completed their political assassination of her, via tactics that, if employed on any other public figure, would be met with howls of injustice and sexism.

If the former, it will fail, and will fail miserably. If the latter, then we're all the losers. Mark Steyn says it best:

National office will dwindle down to the unhealthily
singleminded (Clinton, Obama), the timeserving emirs of
Incumbistan (Biden, McCain) and dynastic heirs (Bush). Our loss.

Either way, it is a bad thing for America.

  1. I'm no Palin fan and the first to bash her. But I also agree that the media did a number on her. I think even all the way up in Alaska (us in the DC area tend to forget about AK) the media affected her and her career.


Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
