We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Palin's column, in a sane world, would leave me optimistic that her line of reasoning could be the string that ties the TEA Party and the OWS "movement" (those two or three articulate members, at least) together in an effort to truly reform things. The root cause is, after all, the career politicians, the Barney Franks and Richard Nixons all. I'm not confident it is a sane world.
