Washburn: Dole's Pixie Dust Solution Won't Work

I cannot improve on Mark Washburn in any way, shape or form. Please go read his column from earlier this week. It is a thing of beauty. Here's a snippet.

  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole failed us. Miserably.
  • Nothing personal. Dole is smart, elegant, honest, accomplished, principled and well-intentioned. She has an admirable record of public service. And so on.

    But in this financial catastrophe, she chose a pixie-dust solution.

    “To fix the markets,” Dole declared as the economy rumbled toward the brink, “we must deliver a market-based solution, not a government bailout.”

    Weekend Woundup Wolcott Style

    I love James Wolcott.

    I don't want the Republican Party simply defeated in November, I want to see it smashed beyond all recognition, in such wriggling, writhing, anguished disarray that it can barely reconstitute itself, so desperate for answers that it looks to Newt Gingrich for visionary guidance, his wisdom and insight providing the perfect cup of hemlock to finish off the conservative movement for good so that it can rot in the salted earth of memory unmissed and unmourned in toxic obscurity.

    The more hate I see directed at my party, my candidates and my children the more I feel it is time to put the haters out of their misery.

    Sarah Palin Abused her Power as Governor According to Troopergate Report

    Say it Ain't So, Sarah - 101 Lies of Sarah Palin

    Lie #2 - Sarah Palin Denied She Abused the Powers of her Office, but Alaska State Legislature Disagrees.

    According to the New York Times the Alaska state legislature has released its report on the investigation into whether Sarah Palin abused the power of her office when she fired the state's public safety commissioner. The McCain campaign has claimed the investigation is politically motivated, however the investigation was initiated well before Palin was named as John McCain's pick for vice president. At the outset, the investigation was a bi-partisan effort.

    The Brickyard

    I grew up just down the street from a brickyard. It's claim to fame is that during World War II it had the largest heating floor in the United States and was therefore a target for Nazi bombers. Knowing what I do now about propaganda, I really doubt that this town of 500 people and its brickyard, located about 500 miles inland, were a target of Nazi bombers. However, the brickyard had a proud tradition, just like the steel mills along the rivers in Pittsburgh or the coal mines that stripped away large parts of Central Pennsylvania when I was a child.
