« McCain Losing Ground After Second Debate | Main | David Brooks: Sarah Palin is a "Fatal Cancer to the Republican Party" »

Right on.

1. the founding fathers would agree with palin... sure, we have to pay for stuff, but supporting our confiscatory tax system, no small part of which funds waste and fraud, is an obscenity and hardly patriotic...

2. no state sales tax is a good thing, and describing a dividend as welfare sounds like communism... texans such as myself should be so lucky to capitalize off our state's resources, of which there are many... and i'd much rather have the profits from money i spend on gas going to and being spent by alaskans in alaska rather than to career politicians in washington and their crazy schemes...

3. drilling in alaska and elsewhere in the continental u.s. may not lower gas prices, but so what, how about alleviating dependence on foreign oil?... worrying about gas prices is short-sighted, because of the petroleum based commodities we use in every day life... we have the technology, albeit no infrastructure, to not only lower gas prices but to eliminate them... it's called electricity...

4. i like former senator alan simpson's take, when he said something to the effect that the environmental impact of drilling in anwr, a vast region, would be the equivalent of a sparrow's fart in a hurricane...

The founders would have sided with Palin, so that makes it patriotic? If that's true then it's unpatriotic to vote for Palin because the founding fathers didn't allow women to vote or run for office. It's also unpatriotic to vote for Obama because blacks weren't permitted to run for office.

Well said, Mookie. All one really needs to consider when rejecting the premise of this thread is:

New York Times
Thomas L. Friedman
David Brooks
Jayson Blair
Judith Miller
Karl Marx
Sol Olinsky

It's Saul Alinsky, not Sol Olinsky. LOL!

Republican David Brooks and Karl Marx on the same list and "sol olinsky?" You don't even know the names of the people you hate. Ron, you are the fatal cancer that Brooks was talking about.

Sorry fellows, I admit that I didn't look up the correct spelling of Saul Alinsky, so good on you...once again you found something insignificant to focus on. LOL. I don't know if you had the correct spelling of old Saul's name in your noggin' or had to Google for it, but if you "Googled" it, did you happen to notice that in the opening paragraph of the Wikipedia (hope I got that one spelled right...did off the top of my head, but I'm sure you gracious folks will correct me if I didn't), that old Saul's claim to fame is that he was a noted "Community Organizer" just like your guy. H-m-m?

Daniel Larison echoes your sentiments in American Conservative:

For the record, I wouldn’t go as far as David Brooks did in calling Sarah Palin a “fatal cancer to the Republican Party.” Besides being unfair to her, that seems a bit rich from someone who cheered on almost every single misguided and terrible policy of the Bush administration, which has been the metastasizing cancer in the Republican body for years. However, I do not understand the idea that there has been no conservative critique of her record. I have said on more than one occasion that I assumed conservatives did not approve of windfall profits taxes, net increases in spending or leaving behind enormous amounts of debt. If that has changed for the sake of this one campaign and candidate, I did not get the memo from the Central Committee that so many others seem to have received.

Palin supported tax increases on oil companies, which ultimately impose costs on consumers, so that she can give away more money in Alaska and buy her extraordinarily high levels of support.

Palin isn't a libertarian or a true conservative. She's populist opportunist.

When Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, she cut taxes and spent like a drunken shopaholic. She increased the town's long-term debt from $1 million to $25 million and left it all to her successors. What will Governor Ima Taxcutter do to the national debt if she ever gets her grubby mitts on the American treasury?

There is so much we don't know about Palin, but the more we learn the more dangerous she looks.

mark, when i went to school, george washington never told a lie... today he's a hemp smoking misogynist slave owner... where would you draw the line holding past civilizations to modern standards?... perhaps neanderthals were nothing more than cavemen lacking social graces and indoor plumbing...

funny how we know so little about palin and obama, yet we know so much, in fact too much, about mccain and biden... but the perceived danger we see in a president boils down to ideology... would anyone who views palin as dangerous be any more comfortable with romney or huckabee?... i certainly don't think hillary is any less dangerous than obama... it's interesting how the lamestream media used to fawn over their maverick mccain only to throw him under the bus now that they got the republican they think they can and probably will defeat...

"mark, when i went to school, george washington never told a lie... today he's a hemp smoking misogynist slave owner... where would you draw the line holding past civilizations to modern standards?... "

So, Mookie, you're a moral relativist?

O.K., I’m convinced…I’m going Obama all the way…yep, the weight of intelligent debate on display in these pages by Lou, Gator, and Mark have turned me. Ron, the moral relativist, is now supporting Barack Hussein Obama for president.

Gosh, I feel better now. I can hear the words of Calypso Louie ringing in my ears as he declares that "the Messiah is absolutely speaking" Video is here:


Yes, “the Messiah is absolutely speaking” and I am memorized. Now I am joining the ranks of other enlightened Obama supporters—Hugo Chavez, Vladimir Putin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Osama bin Laden and al-Assad, as well as Gator, Mark, and Lou.

I think some of you folks live in Chicago. Perhaps you could tell me if there are some good buys to be made in the Hyde Park-Kenwood neighborhood. I think there is a college there and some of the guys in the neighborhood are remarkable: Tony Resco, Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Calypso Louie, and Brother Barack Hussein Obama.

I feel so good...join with me now, come on, all together let’s sing—O-ba-ma my lord, O-ba-ma; O-ba-ma my lord, O-ba-ma. Or as Teddy would have sung, O-sa-ma Obama—O-sa-ma, or whatever. Kum-ba-ya.

Glad to hear that you are joining fellow conservatives who realize that McCain-Palin is a disaster. Today we add Christopher Buckley to the list of conservatives who are disgusted with the Republicans.


Cris Buckley quotes Bill Buckley:

"You know, I’ve spent my entire life time separating the Right from the kooks."

"Brother" Barack Hussein Obama"

Ah, yes, there it is. The real problem. You're supposed to try to hide it, but you can't.
