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!

Resolution of the Sylvania Merger Issue Is Good

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.

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'.

It's always amusing to see Republicans eat their own, but this is a sobering example of how we can thank the election gods McCain-Palin didn't win and didn't deserve to:
