What the Future May Hold

Should you have any doubt that Ms. Palin's potential turn in DC government would be any different than Mr. Bush & Mr. Cheney, check out this excellent NY Times article.

She muzzled city employees while mayor. Now the McCain/Palin campaign are trying to do the same on a bigger scale:

"At a recent lunch gathering, an official with the Wasilla Chamber of Commerce asked its members to refer all calls from reporters to the governor’s office. Dianne Woodruff, a city councilwoman, shook her head.

“I was thinking, I don’t remember giving up my First Amendment rights,” Ms. Woodruff said. “Just because you’re not going gaga over Sarah doesn’t mean you can’t speak your mind.”

Using private email addresses to avoid subpoenas, hiring cronies with little relevant experience to run state offices, firing critics.

Come on people, do we need another 4-8 years of this crap? Is this the best we can do?
