The country's most influential conservatives then duly met quietly in Minneapolis with Sarah Palin. Those assembled were mostly members of the Council for National Policy, an ultra-secretive cabal that networks wealthy right-wing donors together with top conservative operatives such as Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Grover Norquist, Tim LaHaye and Paul Weyrich to plan long-term movement strategy. Rove, Norquist, Cheney, et.al. picked Palin because she is the personification of the train wrecks/NASCAR flaming wreckage we Americans seem to crave even though the fascination is lethal to our democracy and the self interests of 97% of us.
Thankfully, this time Obama and Axelrod are not mere puppets and will allow the incomprehensibly inept, corrupt , phony McCain/Palin to self destruct. Obama/ Biden will thus achieve a watershed landslide victory and thus restore hope not only to our dying democracy but also to the world.
Can't this old man still dream???
