Flea Fly Foe Frum
David Frum has now pontificated on the Palin resignation, so the Vichy wing of the Republican Party can stop holding its collective breath and exhale. “On reflection” Frum has it all figured out. It’s all about the money: “2009-2011 will be her peak years for speaking fees. If she runs for president in 2012, she’ll be obliged to cut back her paid speeches in the | Read More »
