The Palin Trick


What’s so Republican about these economics

by Matt Welch


In all the hubbub of last night’s Sarah Palin coming-out party, the theme of the night — reform — got lost. That was probably just as well for John McCain, since he’s relying so heavily on the Great Man theory of politics, which values above all virtue over messy specifics. But it was also convenient to laud McCain’s ‘real reform’ record without actually mentioning any of McCain’s real reforms, because Republicans tend to hate what few real reforms McCain has made...

Sarah Palin: The Xena of the War Party

by Justin Raimondo


The Palin choice is really all about the internal politics of the GOP, as much as it is about the hubris of McCain’s handlers. With the party led over the cliff by the neocons, whose Iraq adventure has cost them control of Congress and likely the White House, it was necessary to start anew. By reaching back into the party grassroots, and playing the gender card, the neocons could retain control of the GOP instead of being blamed for its demise — and, perhaps, hold on to the White House. It’s a big gamble, because Palin’s unreadiness to be President, in the event of McCain’s untimely demise, is all too apparent. Far from injecting a youthful note into the campaign, Palin’s physical presence next to the Old Man only underscores his advanced age — and the prospect of President Palin staring us in the face. If that doesn’t scare voters, then nothing will...

Going on an Imperial Bender

Tom Engelhardt, "The fact is: We garrison the planet north to south, east to west, and even on the seven seas, thanks to our various fleets and our massive aircraft carriers which, with 5,000-6,000 personnel aboard -- that is, the population of an American town -- are functionally floating bases. And here's the other half of that simple truth: We don't care to know about it. We, the American people, aided and abetted by our politicians, the Pentagon, and the mainstream media, are knee-deep in base denial."

Right to vote too important to trust to electronic machines

by Alvin M. Burt, Ph.D.


So, you thought you voted and that your vote would count — we did too, until we voted in the primary last month. When we walk into the voting booth and cast our secret ballot on Election Day, we are filling a responsibility that comes with being an American citizen and living in a democracy. Filling this responsibility, however, is only possible if the machines that register our vote are true and accurate. My wife and I voted at different times and each of us had very different experiences — neither was good for this right we hold so dear...
