Washington Post Flying Pig Moment re: Sarah Palin

When I saw this in the Leftist™ Washington Post I couldn't believe my eyes. Their senior editors must have been gone last week. The rest of the Fifth Column Fourth Estate must be aghast.

Five myths about Sarah Palin
Here's one:
4. Palin is extreme.

On many of the most important issues of the day, Palin holds positions that are squarely in the center-right of American political discourse. And many of those positions, not incidentally, are held by a large segment or even a majority of the public. For instance, neither the public nor Palin believes the stimulus worked. And while most Americans may not share Palin's views regarding "death panels," many join her in opposing Obama's health-care overhaul.

Over the past two years, Pew and Gallup surveys have tracked the public as it has moved to the right -- not on just one or two issues but on a whole constellation of them. Even on the controversial topics of abortion, guns and same-sex marriage, Palin is not as far away from the center as some suppose. A May 2009 Gallup poll, for example, found that a majority of Americans identified as "pro-life" rather than "pro-choice." In October 2009, Gallup measured record-low support for gun control. The public is divided on same-sex marriage, with about half the country joining Palin's (and Obama's) opposition.
As always, go and read the whole thing. It is refreshing to see the occasional ray of truth escape from the darkness of the establishment "press".

An Interesting Solution

The Soviet Socialist Republic of Illinois has found a solution to that pesky problem of conservative overseas military absentee ballots. Just don't send them. Problem solved!

Military ballots may not count in Illinois
CHICAGO (WLS) - The U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether the state of Illinois missed the deadline for mailing absentee ballots to members of the military and other overseas American voters as part of a new federal overseas voting law.

Cris Cray, Director of Legislation at the Illinois State Board of Elections, says not all of Illinois' 110 jurisdictions were compliant with the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE).

The law requires every state to mail their absentee ballots 45 days prior to Election Day to overseas troops, government employees and other Americans who want to vote from abroad.
Cray says she is currently compiling data from each of Illinois' jurisdictions to determine which were compliant and which were delinquent.

Cray said it's possible the ballots may not be counted because the state was tardy in sending them out.
This is what happens when you do not vote as you are told. Next time they should try to get it right.

Y'all in Illinois, just keep voting for Leftist™ Dems.

(Anyone who thinks that this was an accident is very naive.)
