In other news, dog bites man

The author of Daddy's Roommate is shocked--shocked--that Sarah Palin disapproves of his book.

And to paraphrase Florence King, when will liberals learn to think before they speak? To complain that Sarah Palin "has a small town mind" is not helpful.

Not to mention that most of the people with "small town minds" know how to use a shotgun.

and it's not just a matter of thinking before you speak--it's also a good idea to interrogate the prejudices that such words are based on.

small-town america = roots, family, and heritage for many people, even for a whole lot of city folk.

i can't stand but a few of her political positions, but the gal reminds me of several of my favorite aunts and i admire the heck out of her feminine strength, her commitment to her family and to walking the walk of her faith, and even her mountain cat ferocity.

cuz i so hope Barack Obama wins in November, i really hope lots of liberal leaning people will listen well to cautious like this.
