I have read Jeff Lord’s post about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker supplanting Sarah Palin as “the most hated conservative in America” with both great interest and amusement.
Now I realize there was a lot of tongue-in-cheek in play but I would have to agree with Lord that Walker has become public enemy number one amongst conservative haters - for now.
It is worth noting that Palin has kept a lower profile since her statement on the Tucson massacre in January and other events most notably in Egypt, Libya and Wisconsin have kept her out of the spotlight. But if Palin announces a White House bid then the liberal media (along with some condescending conservatives) will be on her 24/7. It will make the 2008 campaign look like a leisurely stroll. And if it looks like Palin has a chance to win the nomination then it’s going to be a very bumpy ride.
So even though Walker is now in the spotlight look for his detractors to increasingly link him to Palin as evidenced by recent statements from Wisconsin Democratic Congresswoman Gwen Moore and other left-wing blogs.
Make no mistake. Sarah Palin is still in the crosshairs.

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?
