Republi-cons hate Maureen Dowd. Find out why by reading column today, New York Times, Mud Pies for ‘That One.’ In it she argues that "John McCain has long been torn between wanting to succeed and serving a higher cause. Right now, the drive to succeed is trumping any loftier aspirations."
Thomas Friedman's column today, New York Times, Palin’s Kind of Patriotism, is also worth a read. In it he says "Do you think borrowing money from China is more patriotic than raising it in taxes from Americans?” That is not putting America first. That is selling America first."
He also said "putting the country in the position where a total novice like Sarah Palin could be asked to steer us through possibly the most serious economic crisis of our lives is flat out reckless. It is the opposite of conservative."
Republi-cons are not conservative, they are delusional.
