Quick Thoughts on Palin
Wow, what a coup by McCain. I didn’t know he had it in him.

It’s Not Going to be Jindal
Despite Rick Moran’s hopes, and those of others here at RS, Gov. Bobby Jindal reiterated that he will not be John McCain’s Veep choice. “Let me be clear: I have said in every private and public conversation, I’ve got the job that I want. And I’ll say again on air: I’m not going to be the vice presidential nominee or vice president. I’m going to | Read More »
