Why Palin Hasn’t Announced Her Non-Run

It’s summed up perfectly in this fundraising letter from Sarah PAC, which promises that she’s still thinking about running and will continue to do so if you’ll just send her money now. As you may know, Gov. Palin is on the verge of making her decision of whether or not to run for office. It’s one of the most difficult and important decisions of her life. And I want her to know that she has our support… Someone must save our nation from this road to European Socialism. Do you think it should be Gov. Palin? If so, can you send your best, one-time gift to SarahPAC today to help her elect more common-sense conservatives – and show her that we support her if she decides to run? Not a bad scam.

Romney Disappears Past Statements on Health Care Reform

Not only does Mitt Romney flip flop on pretty much every issue in existence, he even tries to make his past statements disappear. After the Republican presidential debate Thursday night, a senior advisor to Mitt Romney acknowledged that a line about spreading health care reform throughout the country was changed in the paperback version of Romney’s book No Apology. Texas Gov. Rick Perry said during the Florida debate that Romney took out the single line that suggested the Massachusetts health reform law could be applied to the country. The line that is removed in the paperback version reads, “We can accomplish the same thing for everyone in the country.” Read more

Sally Kern Brings the Crazy Again

Sally Kern continues to display her authoritarianism and ignorance with statements like this, from an interview with Peter LaBarbera: LaBarbera: I believe the organized homosexuality movement is an evil movement, its organized sin. It’s taking what God says is wrong and pushing it literally as a right, as a civil right. Kern: Well I think they’re trying to get the moral high ground and of course America was founded upon freedom and equality, and so they’ve hijacked that…. And as I’ve said earlier, I think they play up on freedom and equality. Sure we want everybody to have freedom and equality, but there should not be freedom and equality for sinful actions.

Perry Gets Another Insane Endorser

The list of lunatics to endorse Rick Perry for president continues to grow. Rick Perry snagged the endorsement of 27 New Hampshire state legislators on Wednesday, passing fellow GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has endorsements from just 9 Granite State lawmakers. The Texas governor’s campaign was quick to brag about this ally-recruiting coup. “We are honored to have the support of these men and women who represent and understand the sentiments of voters across the state,” said Paul Young, a senior adviser for Perry. But some of Perry’s new supporters have made headlines for the wrong reasons—including for claiming New Hampshire “sold” children to gay couples and for slamming college students as “transient inmates.” Read more

Jail or Church in Alabama

This is clearly unconstitutional: Non-violent offenders in Bay Minette now have a choice some would call simple: do time behind bars or work off the sentence in church. Operation Restore Our Community or “ROC”…begins next week. The city judge will either let misdemenor offenders work off their sentences in jail and pay a fine or go to church every Sunday for a year. If offenders elect church, they’re allowed to pick the place of worship, but must check in weekly with the pastor and the police department. If the one-year church attendance program is completed successfully, the offender’s case will be dismissed. Read more
