When the Star Tribune published an opinion column by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, one needed to look no further than the first word to find what she really cares about: "I." Desperate to stay in the public eye for a 2012 presidential run, Palin has contracted a DC-area lobbying firm to run SarahPAC, a political action committee "dedicated to building America's future [and] supporting fresh ideas." Click on the website, but don't expect to find any "fresh ideas."
With the election of Barack Obama to the Oval Office, let us remember that it was George W. Bush, not Obama, who showed us anybody can be elected president, regardless of articulateness and decision-making skills. Palin is the next GOP empty suit candidate -- more marketing gimmick than leader.
As the United States faces its worst recession since the 1930s, let us continue our renewed faith in meritocracy.
