Holiday Hiatus

UPDATE: Visit my new blog, "The Brickyard"...and follow me on Twitter while you're at it.
---
Hello everyone. If you haven't noticed, this blog has been rather quiet recently. This is in part due to the fact that I am very busy looking for employment and housing in the DC area, and partly due to the decrease in focus on the election. Hence, while I intend to continue blogging, I will not be posting here until after the New Year. Frankly, after almost two years at this gig, I think we could all use bit of a break to think and refocus.

Now, this does not mean we are shutting down. In fact, there are several things that I will be pursuing and would like your opinion on.

1) This website will not be changing its look...at all. Due to the fact that it is being archived by the Library of Congress as a site of historical significance, I intend to leave the name and design of this page intact for posterity and will not redesign. However, I may look into moving operations to a new location where we can put up a page with a more general and/or 2012-based focus.

2) I will probably be looking at launching a personal site/blog that will have a more general political scope (although it will almost surely include a section devoted to all things Sarah).

Thank you for reading and please keep coming back. I'm not going anywhere, just taking a breather before launching new efforts.

I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas or (in my case) a Happy Hanukkah, and I will see you all soon.

Palin credited for landslide win in Georgia

OK newspaper says; Palin credited for landslide win in Georgia

Chambliss: ‘Dynamite’ Palin turned out vote
Newly reelected Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) credited Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with firing up his base and allowing him to cruise to a victory over Democrat Jim Martin.
Chambliss heaped praise on Palin, saying she has a “great future” in the GOP.
“I can’t overstate the impact she had down here. All these folks did a great job coming in,” he said, referring to former presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani. “They all allow you [to] add momentum to where we were in the campaign. But when she walks in a room, folks just explode.”

Party leader credits Palin, majority for GOP victory in Georgia
“The margin you see in this race, I think you can attribute to her involvement in the end,” McKoon said.

Biden to Palin: With the race over, ‘no one pays attention to me’
“I might point out, as I told you when we walked in, since the race is over, no one pays attention to me at all … Maybe you will walk outside with me or something later and say hello to me,” Biden said,

Perry, Sanford and Palin fight for Taxpayers at Philly Conference
Republican Govs. Rick Perry of Texas, Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Sarah Palin of Alaska, led a spirited debate about the pitfalls of adding to the $10.7-trillion federal debt. “They warned that the U.S. economy could collapse”, said Governor Paterson

Palin Power: Former Vice Presidential Candidate Attracts Most Attention At The Governors’ Meeting
The most exciting politician at the National Governors Association (NGA) conference was not President-elect Barack Obama, D, nor was it the former movie action star, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, R-Calif. The politician everyone wanted was Alaska’s Gov. Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate.
“I still have great concerns, when much of the economic problem that we are facing today perhaps was caused by too much debt that solving those problems will not come from incurring more debt”, said Palin.


Finally, watch this video. It appears as if Senator Chambliss endorsed Palin for 2012.
