Sarah Palin leading the Republican pack


According to a man-in-the-street poll by the St. Augustine, Florida teabaggers, who seem to think this is significant. Yes, their “poll” shows this sad alcoholic well in front.

While I can sympathize with the idea of grassroots politics replacing the consultant machine, you kind of have to have both. And the thing that really frustrates me is how many people assume there’s always some really simple solution to our complex problems that doesn’t involve a lot of thinking (which many people aren’t good at).

For instance, the flat tax. Or term limits. I am constantly trying to explain these things to people, and always get either a blank stare or an angry sneer. Oh well!
