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!

A Stalking Horse: Palin Horse, Pale Riders

QUOTE I believe what the selection of Sarah Palin is supposed to convey is that a McCain administration would save babies' lives, protect gun rights and shrink the size of government.
This is, of course, utter nonsense.
So what is Sarah Palin's true purpose? Whether she knows it or not, she is a stalking horse.

The premise that Sarah Palin a a "stalking horse" for McCain and the warmongers, the "pale riders" alluded to in my title above ~ is one that has been burbling around in my subconscious and found piquant and sharp articulation in the comments of author Stephen Carson, and Eric Parks at RSE. She herself is endearing, spunky, independent and smart, but who's that shadowing her? Using her libertarian streak to their own ends? I smell a rat.

The whole article can be found over at Lew Rockwell.

QUOTE Although the veep may attract a few more voters, the truth is that this election remains, sadly, a choice between Scylla and Charybdis. UNQUOTE
