Columnist James Antle is entirely correct: The biggest downside with the pick of Sarah Palin for VP, and one that I haven’t heard anyone else bring up, is that Alaska will most likely lose a hugely capable Governor. And to complicate matters even more, there’s the still undecided race for U.S. House between her Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell and incumbent Don Young. What happens if Parnell ends up being the winner in that race?
You could almost hope for at this point, that Parnell, a firm “Palinista” loses the Congressional seat.p>Wow! Amazing that nobody else has focused in on this most exciting and intriguing aspect of this big story. br> — Eric Dondero , Publisher br> Libertarian Republican blog /p> p> The Democratic outcry against Palin is rich. Her selection could be compared to the Democratic Party’s selection of Harry Truman in 1944. That was another wartime election which brought a foreign policy neophyte to the Vice Presidency. In fact, Truman’s elevation was precisely to frustrate the possibility that Henry Wallace would be VP when a (secretly) ill FDR entered his fourth term. The heirs of the Henry Wallace Progressives have since taken over the Democratic Party and were nominated in Denver last week. Of course, what ultimately saved the situation was not Truman’s national security background, but his basic common sense and fundamental perspective as an American patriot. I suspect that we have the same qualities in Governor Palin. Reminding the American people that Truman fought against the Obama’s and Hillary’s of 1948 would be appropriate…and cause further howling from the Democrats. br> — Craig A. Zimmerman /p>

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
