This Is Really Getting Tiresome...

Don't be hatin...


Some people just can't help but watch Governor Palin like a hawk, even folks on the "right"...

via Conservatives for Palin:

Carlos alerted me to this, from the The Corner at NRO:

Ramesh, I'm sure you've shown your cards somewhere on this matter, so at the risk of asking an ignorant question, do you think our lady up north is worth conservative embrace? Your post hints that you might. If so, what exactly has she done as governor to warrant this affection? As far as I know, her main accomplishments up there are two-fold. First, she taxed and regulated the oil companies out of virtually all remaining marginal plays in Alaska and then crowed endlessly on the campaign trail about how she faced-down the "special interests." Then, she signed into law a stunning array of renewable energy subsidies that would be the envy of any blue-stater.

Sure, she delivers a great speech (not sure if she can write one though). But has she done anything to warrant this love she gets from some quarters on the Right besides her demonstrable ability to play the Merle Haggard card against the cultural Left?

what the author fails to understand about Palin and the companies was that she was battling a corrupt system of crony-capitalism that had teamed up with incumbent party. Being Free-Market and pro-business means not letting the government favor one business over the other. She was trying (and succeeded) in cleaning up a crooked system.

In this picture I want to give her a big old bear hug; Except that she's a tough lady and would kick my butt for doing that. :D

Give 'em Hell, Sarah!
