The New RepublicanSomething I just posted on Hullabaloo:
The issue is not that she doesn't know anything about politics, although that is definitely true. The issue -- and the reason why she is the perfect representative of the new Republican -- is that she knows nothing about governing. Nor does she care.
The prototype of the new Republican is a person who just simply doesn't care about the particulars of governing. Don't like a law? Ignore it (Monica Goodling), subvert it (John Woo, Alberto Gonzales) or rewrite it without legislative review (George Bush's use of signing statements).
The Constitution? Just a piece of paper to these yahoos. (And the biggest problem with this approach is when these morons get on the Supreme Court -- oy.)
Newt Gingrich shuts down government because President Clinton made him sit at the back of th plane. No interest in how the three branches of government share power and work together. And certainly no interest in the best interests of the American people. Their only interest is in seizing power and doing whatever the hell they want.
Its reflective of a mentality that is uninformed, petty and lizard-brained. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is your modern-day Republican -- of which Sarah Palin is princess royale.
