Sarah Palin is effective. She represents the beliefs of the conservative wing of the Republican party and she does so quite well. It is for this reason that you still hear more about Sarah Palin in the media than our own Vice President-Elect Biden! They just can't leave her alone! Do I wish she'd had a different backdrop for her questions after the pardon? Sure I do, for her own good...but the fact remains that she was there to save that turkey from slaughter, and I'm not sure how else a turkey gets to the table on Thanksgiving day than to be killed. Tim Blair over at The Daily Telegraph has a good "round up" of reaction at this link. See the full video in the window provided below.
Second, John and I and the other writers for this blog want to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving. On this day, which was set aside so many years ago to give thanks to our Almighty for all He has done, and for showing us the way, may we never lose sight of the fact that we have much to be thankful for in America. So, Happy Thanksgiving all!
