Team Palin

Marc Ambinder has a read on which politicos are close to, or advising, Sarah Palin.

Pam Pryor, a former RNC senior adviser, leads Palin’s political action committee and is orchestrating her outreach to social conservatives. Randy Scheunenmann remains her policy maestro, with informal assistance from his Orion Strategies colleague Michael Goldfarb, the former Weekly Standard writer and McCain campaign rapid responder. (Goldfarb did not return an e-mail seeking comment about his future in Palin’s world.) Fred Malek is perhaps the single Washington establishment figure that Palin turns to.

Add this to what we learned in 2009, that Becki Donatelli runs SarahPAC and that lawyer-around-town John Coale does whatever else needs to be done, and we’re left with a pretty small-time operation. No offense to any of the players, but compare this to Mitt Romney’s team — which just helped bring Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat over to the GOP — or Mike Huckabee’s industrious HuckPAC, or Tim Pawlenty’s aggressive, never-a-foot-wrong media and web operation, and it looks like an afterthought operation. The result: things like Palin leaning on a Pat Buchanan column to make a hawkish (!) case against Obama’s foreign policy.

Well they better start doing some research or they will have her looking like a GOP hack? First, the Tea Party Convention which was not Tea Party or a Convention and now calling the Tea Party Express bus tour grassroots. These people haven't a clue and they certainly do not do research before parading her out for the world to see. My God do the research on that GOP PAC Our Country Deserves Better and the money grubbing Sal Russo before you sign her up to speak with them!

Sarah Palin is not the dumbing down of the Republican Party.

Consider Reagan and the Shrub.

Republicans like dim-witted candidates that have appeal to the lowest common denominator.

[...] Pawlenty might be worried about Sarah Palin, but at the moment, they’re in much better shape. They have better teams in place. They can play the role of the outsider just well enough to pass. They’ve got a clearer path [...]

Go to You Tube and type in “autism spectrum seems out of control” to see ONE reason why the epidemic of autism exists: this is a HUGE problem rooted within the pervasive ignorance of the American Psychiatric Association, becuz they don't know what the heck autism really is. These experts don't have a clue. Thankfully, parents—such as the mom on You Tube who posts videos of her severely autistic son with self injury—people may get a better idea of the realities of autism, especially the most severe sides There is a spectrum but the spectrum has expanded into something unreal. YOU TUBE type in “autism spectrum seems out of control” This is an important video because the DSM-5 is due to change in the year 2013, and the APA wants to lump ALL these different disablities into ONE catagory…it is pure nonsense, since these experts dont' seem to understand what autism is to begin with..they haven't even got that right. They diagnose people like Donna Williams, the author of Nobody Nowhere, when it turns out, the woman has a multiple personality disorder, that she herself reveals in the book that says she's autistic on the cover..how crazy is this? And dont' get me started on Jenny Mccarthy and her kid who was never autistic but had febrile seizures that caused developmental delays and then when he got seizure meds and ate some wheat free crackers…he was allegedly cured, no Jenny cured him, of his autism…oh boy folks, it's time to educate yourselves about real autism…everyone's got their hand in the autism industry and they RELY on your ignorance about what autism really is…educate yourselves because ignorance is NOT bliss

While shortest prom dress and quinceanera dresses are very famous to reveal girls beauty prom dress, and are always fooling selection to many informal balls prom dresses and parties, long prom clothes is the right choice to traditional prom dresses young ladies. Many people including some parents think that a short prom dress is too exposing with exposed back or without straps Prom Dresses.

Coach Outlet Online

I don’t know. I love Coach Outlet Online Store, I was in Chelsea the happiest man since the arrival of a person who should have never Prada Shoes. I was thinking I would have Coach Outlet be there all my life and a few months later, I buy Coach Purses. So you never know. In Inter I found an incredible family. Players; amazing. President; amazing. Then after two years I felt, even with two more years Coach Purses Outlet, I felt it was over. I need something new for me. So you never know. But when I sign a Coach Factory Outlet, I sign with the intention to respect the contract and be happy for that Prada Sneakers. So if everything goes in the right direction, yes I will stay Coach Outlet Store.
