Ever since John McCain selected his running mate, we've seen the media absolutely ga-ga over her quaint yet forceful way of speaking, and her moose-killin' and her fixing' and all the rest.
I don't know what all the fuss is about.
People outside the Beltway can do...and say...all kinds of interesting things.
And come up with sharper on-point metaphors than all the overpaid self-loving punditocracy inside the Beltway chattering class.

Gerald B. Jacobs writes in The Forum:
"their Republican economic philosophy...based on the concept of feeding grain to the horses in order to feed the sparrows."Hmmmm, seems to me, given the current low setting of the bar on qualifications for high office, this guy's ready to be Secretary of the Treasury. Unless Judge Judy--"don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining."--wants the job.
Jus' need to work on droppin' those "geeeeee's."
