Does Sarah Palin Have A Point?
Does Sarah Palin have a point? She’s point guard; she’s got to have a point! Joking aside, yes, she does. And furthermore, she’s also reached a point – a point of total and complete frustration. “If the GOP is a Conservative Party, why in the Sam Heck doesn’t it actually act like Conservatives want it to?” She probably demands in anger. I can’t blame the lady. I’ve felt like asking the same thing myself.
I’ll concede Sarah’s anger has a valid gravamen. I don’t identify as a Republican so that it can get me hooked up at the club. I expect that real patriots will speak hard truths to stupid voters. The republic demands better than extend and pretend. It’s not just going to be OK in ten years. The Valley Forge Patriot won’t go along with fiascoes like the Gang of Eight Comprehensive Amnesty Reform so that Barack Obama will very publically pat him on his ofay, finely-coiffed head. So the correct question to ask here would be. “Is she doing anything constructive with said emotions when she talks about founding a 3rd Party to challenge both The Democrats and The GOP?”
To get a sense of that, it helps to draw historical analogies to past situations that were similar. Up until 1912, Theodore Roosevelt considered himself a good Republican. Then William Howard Taft defeated him for the 1912 Presidential nomination. Roosevelt then went 3rd Party, forming The Progressive Party*.

You want to know the difference between pro-choice, and pro-abortion? Here you go: “If I Wanted the Government in My Womb, I Would F*** a Senator!” My pro-choice friends with kids would sooner rip off their own ears than give one of their kids that sign to hold.

But Won’t People Die?
They told us we had to do it. We had to rush through Obamacare; passing it to find out what was in it, as Nancy Pelosi told us. We had to do it and it could not wait because lives were depending on it. We needed to save lives and we needed to provide women access to birth control. Suddenly, yesterday, the Obama Administration announced | Read More »

Dear GOP: Don’t Get Cute With This

The scrapping is really a delaying until after the election.Republican strategists are already opining that we should fight to repeal the individual mandate too. What’s good for employers should be good for people after all.Republicans, | Read More »

What Three Dissents Signal for Marriage’s Future
Not only was the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act baseless and just plain wrong, you won’t learn much from reading Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion. Except that he thinks only bigotry can explain support for marriage as it was until the year 2000—a male-female union. You can learn something, however, from reading the three dissenting opinions closely. The conservative justices’ dissents are | Read More »
Go Rogue or Go Home
Much has been made about Sarah Palin’s comments on going third party. I just have one problem with the comments about Governor Palin’s remarks. Though she was answering a question about going third party, I did not and still do not interpret her remarks as expressing an outright willingness to go third party. Governor Palin has long been a disruptive candidate and, as a disruptive | Read More »

The weed of politics bears bitter fruit
The spooky old pulp avenger known as The Shadow was fond of hissing a lesson at his defeated criminal enemies: The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. The fruit of total politics is bitter, too. One cannot help noticing that everything in our hyper-politicized culture is becoming a teeth-and-fingernails struggle in which the losing side is demonized. This kind of thinking even found its way into | Read More »

Citizenship is the Red Herring of Amnesty Debate
The golden rule for House members when contemplating immigration (or any other issue for that matter) is that bad legislation is worse than the status quo. And until we are in the position to pass good legislation, we should not be scoring points for the other team; we should beat them over the head with their bad legislation. Generally speaking, House Republicans are on better | Read More »
