Richard Spencer asks, “how can we not get behind” Sarah Palin and my answer is: Very easily. He writes that “this is a woman who loves guns, has lots of kids, is a rugged individualist in the Western mold, lowered property taxes, and not too long ago supported Pat Buchanan!”
Ho hum. I counter that she consents to run with John McCain, which would be enough to turn me off to her even if she endorsed the collected works of Bill Kauffman and Andrew Bacevich. I won’t be watching her speak at the convention so could someone let me know if she says any thing that might force me to reconsider my opinion, such as:
- Uses the phrase; “Come Home, America.”
- Quotes from the farewell addresses of George Washington or Dwight Eisenhower.
- Invokes Smedley Butler or Wendell Berry.
