"The Palin pick is insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchinson."

Um, ooooops. And Peggy Noonan's response here.

Oh, that's good. I watched the woman's speech. Friends close and enemies closer and all that. What I mostly thought about was how the good old boys that are finally dying out are trying to replace themselves (continue their legacy) with soccer (ahem, hockey) moms. Don't think it will work, but you have to give them a A for effort.

This link is priceless, though. Loved it. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, Peggy. How can you lie like that?

sorry :(

Oh, wow. That link is definitely priceless. The only problem with Peggy's comments?

Kay Bailey Hutchison was vetted, but refused the job - a rumored five times. In Texas, it's common knowledge that she has her eye on the governorship, so she can keep enough time for her family. Though...after watching Palin's speech, I do think McCain just chose an imitation KBH.

Oh, my. But I really think she's right: Palin could be very good or disastrously bad, and I suspect she's going to be the latter. There's too much chaos surrounding her at the moment--her daughter's pregnancy, the federal investigation regarding firing practises, and her sheer extremism. My big issue is that she's very clearly a neo-conservative with very far-right views, and a very religion-oriented platform.

I'm atheist, and I very firmly believe in the separation of Church and State (though I'm not overly extremist; I think that churches should pay taxes, but I also understand the positive impact that a *well-implemented* faith-based initiative program could provide in some communities). I don't like the idea of America turning into the Republic of Gilead, and that's precisely what the new GOP reminds me of.

Must run. The cat has discovered a skein of expensive yarn and a bag of hot pepper powder. This will hopefully not end in tears.

I'm just happy to let the republicans shoot themselves in the foot.
