Watched Sarah Palen at the convention last night. I guess her role is to bring back the culture wars & get the right-wing Republicans jazzed. It bugs me. I don't understand the American obsession with taxes. It's not just the GOP. But Palen says, Obama will raise your taxes and in the next breath promises parents of special needs kids they'll have a friend in Washington. What for? To support programs that support special needs kids by any chance? And I guess the people who benefit from these programs expect them to be supported through what? Maybe they should only be available to individuals who can pay the cost of the programs, so the rest of us can have nice low taxes? I don't get it.
And it does bug me.
