Mark Steyn on Sarah Palin.

Governor Palin is not merely, as Jay describes her, "all-American", but hyper-American. What other country in the developed world produces beauty queens who hunt caribou and serve up a terrific moose stew? As an immigrant, I'm not saying I came to the United States purely to meet chicks like that, but it was certainly high on my list of priorities. And for the gun-totin' Miss Wasilla then to go on to become Governor while having five kids makes it an even more uniquely American story. Next to her resume, a guy who's done nothing but serve in the phony-baloney job of "community organizer" and write multiple autobiographies looks like just another creepily self-absorbed lifelong member of the full-time political class that infests every advanced democracy.

Is sucession an "All-American" idea? It seems that Gov. Palin belonged to a political party in the 1990s whose sole platform was Alaska's sucession and Independence. I am sure the Aaron Burr comparisons will start rolling out any moment.

Thanks for the great quote. Sarah Palin is an inspiration and the more the mainstream media attacks her the better she'll look to real Americans all over this country. I say keep up the attacks and see you in DC in January at Inauguration for McCain-Palin.
