What Mark Said

I've had a lot of thoughts about the selection of Sarah Palin as VP in the past 24 hours and the more I think about it, the more I like it. First off, I'd take her over Obama any day of the week.

She's done the stuff he's merely a poseur about. Post-partisan? She took on her own party's corrupt political culture directly while Obama was sucking up to Wright and Ayers and being just another get-along Chicago machine pol.
