July 18th, 2011 · Comments Off on The Palin Ascendency · Lobbying, Media, Politics, Wars and Militarism

When Sarah Palin was selected as the Vice Presidential candidate in 2008 to run with John McCain, she seemed a nice, relatively simple woman with a family and at least the minimal amount of intelligence necessary to run a small community–not an insignificant thing. She had been mayor of a small community, Wasilla, Alaska. She […]

July 1st, 2011 · Comments Off on The Only Good Republican is a Dead Republican · Politics, Populism
