Scary Stuff

This has got to be a joke, right? With Ann Coulter penning the article, Human Events has named Sarah Palin "Conservative of the Year."

I've spent plenty of time doing the Palin bashing thing before, so my only comment is this: What conservative things has Sarah Palin ever done or said? According to Ann Coulter, Palin is worthy because she annoyed liberals. Let's hope that's not what conservatism has really become.

Please note, Sarah Palin is a libetarian NOT A CONSERVATIVE! While we libertarians are joyful that Conservatives support her and admire her, she started her career as a libertarian Republican, she was slammed during that career by social conservatives for being a "libertarian," she has a history of attendance at local Libertarian Party meetings, and she has a nearly perfect libertarian record on the issues.

Please cease and desist from referring to her as a "conservative" in the future. Call her by her correct name, "libertarian Republican."

Thank you for your cooperation.

I must have missed the libertarian part of Palin's vice-presidential campaign.

For all the talk about getting back to conservatism's roots, getting back to Reagan, we seem to be heading more towards Mike Huckabee. This should be about small-government, fiscal restraint and supply-side economics; not religion (I'm no atheist btw, I'm a Catholic).

But I'm not interested in leaders who run/govern based on scientifically unsubstantiated faith in certain ideas (we've got enough of that on the other side with liberals absurd certainty about man-made global warming and).

I'm interested in leaders that can articulate the facts, the proven ability of free-markets to improve the quality of lives for all and the countless proven failures of big government. Romney is the only guy I've seen capable of doing that. Maybe Palin can when she on her own, but I'm not sure what she's accomplished to make her a better fiscal conservative than McCain, who Coulter obviously believes is the anti-Christ, despite the fact that I am certain McCain would've kept government smaller than Bush has.
