It's so laughably simple. The talk is all about where the Republicam party goes from here. The answer--one can rarely go wrong with Paris.
The middle class is shrinking. Where do Republicans think the next generation of GOP voters will come from as everyday people continue to see opportunity--to say nothing of the American dream--steadily slipping away?

Aha. In debate format the governor becomes Miss Congeniality all of a sudden. And not unlike Sandra Bullock’s character in the movie of the same name, Sarah Palin does in fact clean up pretty well. I kept waiting for the words, "world peace" to spring from her lips. Unfortunately they never did. ...read more
--Interviewer-- In all candor, Governor Palin. . .do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?
--Candidate-- Not all of them, Charlie. I mean, there are so many. After all, wasn't it just last week at the convention where I said that while standing on American soil we can actually see ...read more

Our eyes go wide with disbelief
As we watch a D.C. mom stare back
With moist eyes and trembling lips
