Ron Paul: Footnote to a Footnote

To say the man is unprincipled, if not an outright crackpot, would be a severe understatement. (h/t)
Former Republican presidential contender Ron Paul has endorsed Don Young in his bid to win an 18th term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Paul, the 72-year-old congressman from Texas whose maverick presidential bid drew wide support in Alaska, sent out a letter to his supporters here urging them to vote for Young.

“Don and I have served together in Congress for many years, and I consider him a friend,” Paul wrote in the letter. “Don has been an outspoken voice against environmental extremists over the years and has strongly opposed the types of federal regulatory overreach advocated in the name of environmentalism.”

Paul and Young are a bit of an odd couple. Paul is a fiscal conservative; Young believes in earmarking federal dollars for Alaska wherever possible. Paul opposes the Iraq war; Young supports it.

The Gaffe Brothers

From The One (h/t):

(Yeah, Obamessiah might not have meant to call Palin a pig, but the partisan crowd there certainly thought he did.)

And the latest from Ardent Catholic Joe (h/t):
“I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have...the joy and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability...Well guess what folks? If you care about it, why don’t you support [embryonic] stem cell research?”
Why? Here's why.

The Case Against Palin by Liberal Catholics

It's pretty weak, not the least of which results from an erroneous use of terms by said liberals. (h/t)

Gov. Palin technically might be in heresy of the Church (which is unfortunate) but she's no apostate.

First Gen X-er in the White House?

I'll claim her as one of "us", even though she was born just a tad before the commonly held start time.
