Flowers for a dead President (not the one you expect)

I also wonder, what would Gerald Ford have thought if he could somehow see McCain coming to lay flowers at his grave with First Dude? …And what is Todd Palin doing there in the first place — especially when (forsaking the excellent adventure) he could be home with the baby and kids?

Ah. This is one of those “reach out to the moderates” action straight out of the playbook. Ford would be appalled, I think, by Palin’s politics, as he was appalled by the Religious Right’s co-opting of the party.

Reported this one to The General.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Governor Palin’s Reading List

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Governor Palin’s Reading List

Fascist writer Westbrook Pegler, an avowed racist who Sarah Palin approvingly quoted in her acceptance speech for the moral superiority of small town values, expressed his fervent hope about my father, Robert F. Kennedy, as he contemplated his own run for the presidency in 1965, that “some white patriot of the Southern tier will spatter his spoonful of brains in public premises before the snow flies.”

It might be worth asking Governor Palin for a tally of the other favorites from her reading list.

And that shocking revelation is just one more for the pile. Maybe Gov. Palin should actually READ the books on her reading list – the one that was handed to her with her “VP Barbie Pretty in Pink” goodie bag.
