Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Best Article on Palin Yet

Out of the media frenzy over the past week since McCain announced his choice for the VP slot on his ticket, today I read the best of the lot. It comes from The Times Online (UK). Fabbo, fabbo, fabbo.

Please note: I don't whole-heartedly endore any slate this year, believing that the whole picture is not addressed by any candidate and that the most worthy politcial work is currently being done by a retired oilman on his own dime (T. Boone Pickens) and however I vote this year I will be doing so with my nose firmly held, unless I write-in Ron Paul. That said, I do love seeing the liberals squirm.

QUOTE: The best line I heard about Sarah Palin during the frenzied orgy of chauvinist condescension and gutter-crawling journalistic intrusion that greeted her nomination for vice-president a week ago came from a correspondent who knows a thing or two about Alaska.

“What's the difference between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama?”

“One is a well turned-out, good-looking, and let's be honest, pretty sexy piece of eye-candy.

“The other kills her own food.”
It never ceases to amaze me how the Left falls again and again into the old trap of underestimating politicians whom they don't understand. From Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher to George Bush and Mrs Palin, they do it every time. Because these characters talk a bit funny and have ridiculously antiquated views about faith, family and nation, because they haven't spent time bending the knee to the intellectual metropolitan elites, they can't be taken seriously.
