Read Peggy Noonan's piece describing Sarah Palin as "A Clear and Present Danger to the American Left." (HT Justin Taylor)
"Because she jumbles up so many cultural categories, because she is a feminist not in the Yale Gender Studies sense but the How Do I Reload This Thang way, because she is a woman who in style, history, moxie and femininity is exactly like a normal American feminist and not an Abstract Theory feminist; because she wears makeup and heels and eats mooseburgers and is Alaska Tough, as Time magazine put it; because she is conservative, and pro-2nd Amendment and pro-life; and because conservatives can smell this sort of thing -- who is really one of them and who is not -- and will fight to the death for one of their beleaguered own; because of all of this she is a real and present danger to the American left, and to the Obama candidacy."

Runner up for Comment of the Week, Fred Thompson: "They're not gonna tax your family. No, they're just gonna tax businesses. So, unless you buy something from a business, like groceries, clothes, or gasoline, or unless you get a paycheck from a business, a big business or a small business, don't worry. It's not gonna affect you."

Gunny - in response to your comment on my FB status - you have no idea how badly I have a "case of the Mondays"!

My son was involved in a car accident on 08/02. The girl ran a red light and flipped my son's Tahoe. She had no driver's license. Her court date was today. She did not show up. Instead - her attorney faxed a letter requesting a court date - it was June 2009!

I told the District Attorney's office today to remember my name...they would be hearing from me regularly, I would be at her court date - and I was out to change Texas law! :)

Nothing like a mom on a mission, huh? I actually have started a new blog called "Stand Up 4 Change" - and will link it to my FB page later this week.

Great list, by the way! Have a blessed week.

BTW, does this mean you consider me a blue chipper? :)

I like that Reformed Baptist Fellowship site, there's some great stuff on there! And this coming from a Presbyterian!

Kelly, at least you won comment of the week, if that's any consolation.

Yeah, her testimony is a wonderful answer to years of prayer and a great reminder of the power of God that He is mighty to save, but all I have to do is remember my own to see an even greater creep that He saved.

Timothy, whatever you want to hear, brother. I'll pull out all my Baptist mojo, if necessary.


Jared, there is some great slooge there, ain't it?
