Sarah Palin Gives a Powerful Speech

I just watched on PJTV a live speech delivered at a Tea Party Convention in the US by Sarah Palin. Wow!! If she can govern as well as she can deliver a prepared speech, she will change America. There must have been millions of viewers watching it via PJTV cause the streaming video kept dropping. I hope PJTV has the whole speech up on their website for several days (if the contract with her allows it), so anyone who missed it can see what I mean. Anyway, now I can go pee.

Oooh. And there's an interview with her after the speech. I missed the first bit of it.

Yeah. The connection between those two thoughts is REALLY clear.

If Doreen, the very nice young woman who works at the diner just down the road from me, can govern as well as she flips a burger, she will change Canada.

The Palin thing is a difficult choice for conservatives. You can do like Kathy Shaidle, and acknowledge that Palin is a vapid but marketable ditz, an amusing weapon for pissing off progressives, but nothing resembling an actual leader.

Or you can go the Sentinel/Dodo route and adoringly sip champagne from her slippers, pretending there's actually serious political thought happening in there.

How is it gonna shake out for you, Louise?

Two things:

1) "There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation."

2) It appears Balb doesn't know the meaning of the word "if".

Gosh, that brings back memories. I haven't seen the "cryptic as profound" card played since I was in high school.

But seriously - Balb illustrated his understanding of the word "if", and its fundamental irrelevance to this construct, in his third paragraph, thanks much.
