Ann Coulter awards Palin Human Events' Conservative of the Year

I love the latest piece by Ann Coulter in Human Events. Some highlights:

Sarah Palin wins HUMAN EVENTS’ prestigious “Conservative of the Year” Award for 2008 for her genius at annoying all the right people. The last woman to get liberals this hot under the collar would have been … let's see now … oh, yeah: Me!

Royalty in America

Doesn't it seem really crazy that someone we've never heard of or seen since she was a little girl at her father's funeral should now be set for a senate appointment to HRC's NY seat?

They say the voters are never wrong, and that is certainly the case with the Sylvania merger issue. In this instance the status quo is pretty good. Both Sylvania governments are currently financially sound and providing similar services to their residents. My motivation in pursuing the merger was to secure lower real estate taxes for everyone in both jurisdictions and a lower earned income tax rate in the entire community.

Good Newsweek stuff

At very bottom, see Obama's quote on 'changing light bulbs' and 'global warming'.

Where's Don Henley? Here comes the GOP 'dirty laundry':

Sign...I suppose when the police are ready with riot gear "just in case," nothing should surprise us any more.
