So Much for the "Thinking Person's Sarah Palin"

For those who thought that Michelle Bachmann is what Sarah Palin would be if Sarah Palin were smart . . .

Bachmann made a pre-primary foray into New Hampshire yesterday and committed the following crime against truth:

What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty. You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord. And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most magnificent nation that has ever arisen in the annals of man in 5,000 years of recorded history.

Everyone makes bloopers. But you'd kinda expect that Bachmann or someone who works for her would've caught this one when she's stepping on the Big Stage for the first time. Especially when she's repeatedly referencing revolutionary themes. Especially when she's repeatedly criticizing the effectiveness of public schools.

Much as we wish that blue states had nothing to do with our nation's liberty, we admit that Massachusetts had something to do with the Revolution.

We expect this tape to be run in a continuous loop until Bachmann retires from the field.

Once again, the GOP field is going to be clear for the grownups.

The only problem is that the "adults" are so boring. Like it or not, the last boring person to be elected president was before I was born. (unless you count Nixon as boring)

That's what made Calvin Coolidge so cool. He was boring, smart and witty, all at the same time.

If by grownups you mean conservatives in name only like McCain, we are doomed to four more years of Obama. The margin of loss for McCain would have been far worse without Palin.

If what Kevin says is true, that the margin of loss for McCain would have been far worse (or better) without Palin, then the republic is doomed to Hell. And not Bell's Hell.

It amuses me to read the comments of the liberals who have infected the Republican party. The appeasers like McCain need to go, or the party will become irrelevant as a true conservative movement takes it's place.
