Of course she doesn’t, don’t be ridiculous. They would throw me out of #TCOT if I thought that! But if I know conservatives like I know conservatives, nothing gets their attention more than speaking ill of our ‘Cuda. Gotcha!
The irony of this blog post is that just two days ago I wrote aboot how it was time to say good-bye to Sarah Palin for the time being and focus on other leaders. However, there were two articles that came out in the past two days that had her doing what we’ve wanted her doing from the beginning…talking aboot substance. Not her clothes or Wal-mart, but actual policy issues.
Mr. Obama and Congress could make this happen with permanent tax cuts and by adhering to a path of fiscal discipline. When congressional appropriation trains run too hastily, they accumulate excess baggage, spending more taxpayer money. Leaving more money in American pockets through tax cuts and fiscal discipline stimulates the business-investment and job-creation climate — the climate for economic recovery.
And here she is talking aboot her new alternative energy plan for Alaska, which some say is even more ambitions then President Obama’s
Especially evident in these trying economic times is America’s need for affordable, abundant and secure energy. This means American energy resources developed through American ingenuity and produced by American workers. I applaud President Obama’s focus on alternative and renewable energy, and here in Alaska we’ve joined the effort: I have asked Alaskans to focus on obtaining 50% of our electric generation from renewables by 2025. In the meantime, we must not abandon oil and gas exploration and development. In fact, Americans should demand the cooperation of the major oil producers so that Alaska’s vast supply of clean natural gas can be brought to market. Alaska stands ready to positively contribute to the nation’s markets and energy needs.
This is the Sarah Palin I want to see more of…albeit after a break. I don’t care aboot her being a hockey mom who knows the price of Pampers. That can only go so far. If Palin is going to have a future in national politics, it’s going to need to be with her tackling issues and providing Americans with her vision for the future.
This is definitely a good start, and most likely the launch of her re-election campaign in Alaska. And while I still don’t see her running in 2012 (to the dismay of fair and balanced journalists like Andrea Mitchell and Frank Rich), this could very well be a first step towards 2016.
UPDATE: Of course she’ll always have douchebags like these to deal with…
UPDATE DEUX: …and this asshole.
