ALSO: Larry Kudlow, Palin our energy answer.
UPDATE: Peggy Noonan to McCain and Palin: Wit, wit, wit. Peggy continues on being a bubblehead (how ironic after her open mic syndrome---so tell us what you really think, Peggy),
"Let me say of myself and almost everyone I know in the press, all the chattering classes and political strategists and inside dopesters of the Amtrak Acela Line: We live in a bubble and have around us bubble people. We are Bubbleheads. We know this and try to compensate for it by taking road trips through the continent -- we're on one now, in Minneapolis -- where we talk to normal people. But we soon forget the pithy, knowing thing the garage mechanic said in the diner, and anyway we weren't there long enough in the continent to KNOW, to absorb. We view through a prism of hyper-sophistication, and judge by the rules of Chevy Chase and Greenwich, of Cleveland Park and McLean, of Bronxville and Manhattan. And again we know this, we know this is our limit, our lack. But we also forget it. And when you forget you're a Bubblehead you get in trouble, you misjudge things....." er, uh, yes, Peggy. Read the whole thing.
THE AUDACITY OF THE DOUBLE STANDARD
The utterly despicable double standard and hypocrisy with which the pro-feminist MSM is approaching and "vetting" John McCain's VP process and pick Sarah Palin is making a shocking new low in American journalism even at a time of sustained lows.
CNN's perpetually PMS-ing Campbell Brown, who has a one-year-old baby at home, dripping with jealousy and invective, having a mad-dog-with-a-bone tirade on CNN is the first case in point: what is one thing Palin has done in an executive capacity of Alaska's National Guard? she inveighs over and over, gaining anger with each passing swipe.
Former home wrecker Sally Quinn (who couldn't write but nevertheless made her way to the top by 'dating' then married Ben Bradley, former editor of the Washington Post) writing her new holier-than-thou religion column for the WAPO is another. Both, and there are many others like them though surely not all, are feminists and diva elites who couldn't stand up under their own scrutiny nor stand the thought of a non-elitist, talented, capable beautiful woman being elected VP under the guise that she's not ready or hasn't enough experience. These cannibal journalists whole-heartedly support an empty suit with little experience, as in community organizer Barack Obama. Maybe it's a father fixation thing. Yet a woman with experience as a wife, mother, mayor, executive, and Western governor and outdoors woman after my own heart, simply doesn't hold up to their grandiose double standards of perfection for her. If this is not the lowest point in American journalism, I don't know what can bottom it.
Ain't aging feminism grand? It only applies to the liberal anointed ones who believe like they do. It's the same in the civil rights movement with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Outstanding as he is, he doesn't count and is derided by many ignorant and jealous blacks and liberal white elites because he's a conservative with conservative principles. That means that no contribution he makes to the public good counts.
Let's be honest. No amount of vetting of Palin would ever satisfy these media bubbleheads and cannibals. So don't try. McCain was right in canceling his appearance on Larry King last night.
I've added two links at the top of my sidebar. One of them. Keep an eye on them. Did you know that MoveOn.org is offering $5,000 to anyone who brings in a juicy tidbit of dirt on Palin, her husband or family that will make them look bad? It's the American way. Never mind about Obama's cocaine use, or his friendship with Bill Ayers and the infamous Reverend Wright. Never mind that he's a professional candidate who will be running for office forever.
Let these cannibals and bubbleheads talk among themselves.
