Sarah Palin, Who cares what anyone else says anymore?

Washington has been asleep at the switch and ineffective and management on Wall Street has not run these institutions responsibly and has put companies and markets at risk
-Sarah Palin

This from the party of less regulation, less government? It’s a good thing she was never on the ticket for the Libertarian vote.

Sure hope all that upcoming responsibility doesn’t raise our taxes any more. ‘Cause, you know, that would damage our economy.

[Updated to add:] Does this mean McCain is going to stop talking about how strong our economy still is, now?


Echoing one of John McCain’s favorite lines, the Alaska governor said she was pleased taxpayer money would not be used to bail out Lehman, as it was following the collapse of Bear Stearns last spring.

Too bad they are bailing out Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae, which are hundreds of times larger than Lehman Brothers.

[Edited AGAIN to add:] It also looks like Alaska is the state with the highest taxes and the highest per-capita government spending. You could call Time magazine a biased medium, but I doubt it would be hard to confirm that assessment.
And I actually don’t have a problem with that. Transportation and infrastructure obviously will cost more in Alaska than anywhere else. And they’d certainly have to pay ME more if they wanted me to teach there.
It is the anti-tax Republicans and Libertarians who should be appalled, if they’re not hypocrites. Oh. Well, never mind then.

  1. She didn’t need to be on the Libertarian ticket, cause the Libertarians endorsed her in her Governor’s race in 2006. Even her Libertarian opponent Billy Toien backed her.

    She’s the most libertarian candidate on a major party ticket since Goldwater. And we Libertarians are damned proud of Sarah Palin, despite all the Leftwing sniping.

    Keep up the Palin bashing you Liberals. You’re just pushing us Libertarians right into the welcoming arms of the GOP.

  2. Somehow, nothing you just said made me feel any better at all about Palin as someone who could so easily be our next president.
    One of the things on my “liberal” agenda would be to tighten the rules on credit companies and lenders. Wouldn’t be great for the short-term economy, but it beats having to bail out these large companies.

  3. My favorite line from “Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me” about Palin was that saying living close to Russia made her an expert in foreign policy was like living next to Lake Michigan making you a catfish.

  4. It’ll never happen.
    My experience tells me that a vocal atheist would be demonized into obsolescence before he could even get an investigation committee together, forget about raising a few million cash to gain some name recognition.
    If I could raise a few million cash, I’m not sure I’d even be in the States right now.
