What's good about Palin

Hockey moms and capital markets.

Intellectually orientated people look down on Palin for being an uneducated country bumpkin. Spengler, writing in asia times, talks about how Palin showed initiative in clearing out the oil company corruption in Alaska. Part of the reason Asia keeps sending us all their money is because we have people like Palin who do try to fight against financial corruption, unlike the asian capital markets where every application is accompanied with a small bribe.

(Also I suspect trooper-gate is quite likely to be true just because Palin fought against one type of corruption doesn't mean she isn't going to be guilty of other abuses of power. However we have people holding her to the fire for her corruption).

I still oppose her for being part of the American christian theocratic movement (God told us whats best for you), but it's useful why some respect her.

I truly appreciate how consistently open minded you've been when facing these particularly partisan times. And that you can in general oppose someone but still see some things to like despite that opposition. It seems...rare, lately. Thanks.
