The Media Takes Notice

For as much as bloggers like me have flogged the mainstream media in the past, it is worth noting that they can be very helpful at times. For instance, getting mentioned by a blogger for the Anchorage Daily News can generate a lot of traffic.

This is now (I believe) the third time that a blogger from the Daily News has linked to me, and while I'm not sure if they're taking this idea seriously yet, they are certainly doing a lot to promote it. The Daily News has also noticed that I'm no longer the only one putting forward the idea of Sarah Palin as a Vice Presidential candidate. Hopefully, it will not be too long before coverage like this becomes commonplace...and takes on a more serious tone.

(Note to the Daily News: As for my being "relentlessly optimisitic"...guilty as charged.)

If you're being called crazy, you're in good company - Socrates, Newton, Jefferson, the Wright brothers, etcetera. Persevere, my friend, persevere.

this sort of bothers me... I was reading her stance on education. Does she support school vouchers?

Josh, I can't answer your question directly, as this site is not qualified to speak for Gov. Palin or her administration and her position paper from her gubernatorial campaign makes no explicit mention of vouchers.

The position paper does contain pro-school-choice statements, and probably the most telling language was in the sub-seciton on Home-schooling, which comments on the idea that homeschoolers should not be withheld funding if they use faith based material.

So, as a vouchers proponent, I found her positions to be in line with my thinking...but like I said, I'm not qualified to speak for her.

Josh, Queen P is a self described Conservative Christian Republican. Think of Pat Robertson with a pretty smile.
