The Palin Question Answered; Sotomayor Answer Confirmed

I was not sure what to make of the Sarah Palin’s resignation in Alaska, and frankly, I was disappointed. I took it as a sign that she was fed up with the politics of politics.

I understood her frustration; anyone who has sought office has experienced the same. However, her op-ed in the Washington Post today established that she is not only on the national stage and running for President, but has an insight that has become rare among Republicans.  Take a few minutes to read it.

Though too early to earn my endorsement, all I can say today is “Go, Barracuda, Go!”

Though she missed it by definition, I loved her comment, “The ironic beauty in this plan? Soon, even the most ardent liberal will understand supply-side economics.” (By definition, the green energy in “cap-and-tax” is supply-side; what she meant is that liberals will understand supply and demand).

Regarding Sotomayor: Though I did not get to watch all of the hearing, I though Jeff Sessions did a great job for the GOP while Lindsey Graham was typically soft, letting her off the hook more than once after a brilliant series of questions. He could have made several good points that even CBS would have to air had he followed up. I’ll be happy to see the proud state of South Carolina replace Graham with a Republican. It’s a shame Jim DeMint could not pitch-hit for him in these hearings.

Sotomayor will be confirmed, and will not change the balance of the Court, but her statements today directly contradict her prior rulings and statements -entire speeches cannot be “taken out of context”.

Sotomayor is not main-stream; she is an extremist that believes the Court should make law and rely on international law. She is not qualified to be on the Court. Let’s hope the Republican Senators hold strong enough beliefs to unanimously in reject her. If not, Americans should reject them.
