I fell asleep on the couch last night and work up at 5 a.m. Much to my youngest’s dismay I don’t see Fitchburg schools listed as canceled but I did turn on Way Too Early with Willie Geist and I see they have discovered Eric Fuller now that he has apologized.

That delay resulted in this post which resulted in my single best day since the blog opened, so I guess I should thank the MSNBC crew for delaying.

I presume Morning Joe will have it as well, but the focus is likely going to be another Palin derangement syndrome day.

(I think the battle hymn song is over the top, I think it enters Palin cult territory. I’m sure they are very nice people but I thought it was shall we say…amusing. )

to paraphrase my favorite president Grover Cleveland. Camp of the Saints rightly points out that if we treat Sarah the way the media treated President Obama during the last election, we will not only be wrong but we will be doing ourselves and her no favors:

Friendly advice should be taken as such. And conservatives should never fall for a cult of personality. Sarah Palin is an admirable lady. She is not a savior. ‘Nuff said.


Mindless idolatry
is no way to pick a candidate. Remember the line from the movie The Buccaneer

British Captain: I may have been misinformed. I understood that Mr. LaFitte was in command.

Lafitte: If your offer is good it will stand up under fire.

Do we have so little faith in Palin’s ability to stand up under fire or to recover from a mistake? If our candidate and our positions are good, then they can stand criticism.. If not then not only will we lose, we will deserve to. For Reference see Coakley, Martha.
