I listened to Hugh Hewitt as I drove to the post office today. Hewitt was at his worst.
His caller was a Democrat woman who is voting for "Sarah and John." (Apparently, John is an afterthought to Sarah voters.)
Why is she voting for Sarah? Because this woman had a special needs child of her own and she doesn't want other women to go through what she went through.
In other words, she is voting for Sarah for what used to be Democrat reasons. This woman is a member of a pressure group and she expects Sarah to throw taxpayers money at her cause. She expects Sarah to expand the nanny state and destroy a little more of our freedom -- in the name of helping mental retards. Excuse me, "special needs babies."
And Palin is supposed to be the one on the ticket that wants small government! What a joke!
Hewitt, of course, was delighted. He doesn't give a damn about freedom or any other principles conservatives were once supposed to hold dear. Hewitt wants electoral success, and anything the Republicans have to do to win is fine by him.
This is the death of the Republican Party. It is now just another welfare state party, a gang grasping for power so they can spend the money you make.
I do not see how I can ever again give this party my vote.
