Lisa Murkowski Defeats Joe Miller In 2010 Alaska Senate Race

Sara Palin’s candidate did not win the Alaskan senatorial race.  Why am I so happy that a Republican won?  Well, because ANYTHING is better than another Tea Party candidate in the Senate.  Especially one hand-picked by the “grizzly momma” herself.

In her new book, Sarah Palin rails on American Idol, among other things…

Sarah Palin’s new book: America By Heart seems to be a “stomach turner according to Palingates.  It’s no secret that Mrs. Palin should be getting her own house in order before slamming other Americans and iconic American television shows.

Dittoheads, race and denial

I’ve read reports about Rush Limbaugh’s non-stop assault on minorities, particularly Blacks.  (I don’t listen to his show anymore.  Between the lies and the racist rants, it’s just unbearable.) It seems almost common-place now, to speak and write racist comments on what used to be mainstream blogs and newspapers, these days.  Perhaps, they have Rush Limbaugh… More Dittoheads, race and denial
