In response to my column on Friday, Sarah Palin supporter Ian Lazaran does a good job of taking the column as it was meant to be taken, as what he calls a “mock exercise” (I wouldn’t call it a MOCK exercise, but close: a training exercise in hypotheticals, or something like that) to identify each candidates’ most obvious weaknesses and to urge all candidates to catalogue ALL their weaknesses and be ready to answer for them or ameliorate the problems. He takes up the challenge by providing a list of reasons why the criticisms I offered about Palin should not be considered important. If I analyzed his answers, I might quibble with some of them, but that’s not the point: The point is to get the candidates’ teams to do the requisite work; and for activists, too, to look really hard before they leap to any one candidate’s support. This is a crucial choice before the Republican Party and the conservative movement, and the party and the movement must get it right.
Lazaran’s blog post is a highly constructive contribution to the conversation.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
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?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
