"That old high school offense looked pretty good today."That sums it up.
Sarah Palin is coming to Georgia to campaign for Saxby Chambliss on Monday, Dec. 1, in advance of the runoff the next day. Will she be able to sway any voters, or, more importantly, get out the vote for our 41st senator? I plan on attending her rally with the wife and our 13 year old daughter. Hope to see lots of other families there. If we make it, will send a report!

"As a career classroom teacher, I can see how smart she is -- and quite frankly, I think the people who don't see it are the stupid ones, wrapped in the fuzzy mummy-gauze of their own worn-out partisan dogma. So she doesn't speak the King's English -- big whoop! There is a powerful clarity of consciousness in her eyes. She uses language with the jumps, breaks and rippling momentum of a be-bop saxophonist. I stand on what I said (as a staunch pro-choice advocate) in my last two columns -- that Palin as a pro-life wife, mother and ambitious professional represents the next big shift in feminism. Pro-life women will save feminism by expanding it, particularly into the more traditional Third World."
Like me, she thinks the Senate is the wrong move for Palin (I think it's the kiss of death for a presidential run). Again, Paglia says:
"What a claustrophobic, nitpicking comedown for an energetic Alaskan. Sarah Palin should stick to her governorship and just hit the rubber-chicken circuit, as Richard Nixon did in his long haul back from political limbo following his California gubernatorial defeat in 1962. Step by step, the mainstream media will come around, wipe its own mud out of its eyes, and see Palin for the populist phenomenon that she is."
Of the Media's treatment of Obama:
"In the closing weeks of the election, however, I became increasingly disturbed by the mainstream media's avoidance of forthright dealing with several controversies that had been dogging Obama."
One of those controversies, Ayers/Dohrn:
"My concern about Ayers has been very slow in developing. The mainstream media should have fully explored the subject early this year and not allowed it to simmer and boil until it flared up ferociously in the last month of the campaign.
"Given that Obama had served on a Chicago board with Ayers and approved funding of a leftist educational project sponsored by Ayers, one might think that the unrepentant Ayers-Dohrn couple might be of some interest to the national media. But no, reporters have been too busy playing mini-badminton with every random spitball about Sarah Palin, who has been subjected to an atrocious and at times delusional level of defamation merely because she has the temerity to hold pro-life views."
Read the whole article. Paglia should be on your must read list.
Not shaping up too good so far. Lots of Wahington insiders on this list.
My bottom line on this is until these unnamed staffers come out of the woodwork and publicly say this stuff, it's all B.S.

Get out and vote Republican. You won't get any of those things from Barack Obama. You'll get retread Leftist Democratic policies that haven't been successful anywhere they have been tried. You'll get a weaker, more France-like United States, and you'll end up with a smaller, lower morale military, and much greater public debt. If you like those things, Barack is your guy.
