Anyone but Bachmann

Posted by  ▪  August 14, 2011

As you know, I have zero tolerance for Republicans who trash talk Sarah Palin.  Three years of Palin Derangement Syndrome have made me allergic; Palin stands apart from other Republican candidates in that regard. There is only one candidate in the Republican field

Narratives

Posted by  ▪  August 13, 2011

It’s hard to believe the media narrative about Palin ever could change. But it could change among the less crazed. MSNBC always will be foaming at the mouth, but others would have a hard time keeping up the hate. Update:

Posted by  ▪  August 12, 2011

While Obama has announced his opposition to a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state, the administration’s efforts to convince other countries to follow suit have been underwhelming at best. Lost in the chaos of budget negotiations, downgrades, war tragedies and
