Virulent hatred seems misplaced

I’m almost hoping that Sarah Palin runs for president. That way, we will be able to see the virulent hatred that the left has for this woman. We would be able to dodge four more years of wacko liberal socialism from a man who thinks we have 57 states. A man who can’t pronounce “corps” (it’s not “corpse”) and requires a teleprompter to speak. A man who has never met a payroll or managed anything except a street mob.

The left beat up on George W. Bush and made fun of his “wit,” but Bush had an MBA from Harvard. Teddy Kennedy got kicked out of Harvard for cheating. Bush also had a higher college GPA than John Kerry (Mr. Dull) and Al Gore, who flunked out of divinity school. Bush is a decent human being and a good Christian who did a good job as president.

And as a historical footnote, they did ring the bells to warn the colonial militia that the Red Coats were coming along with Paul Revere’s famous ride.

Wildlife officials said Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, that an emergency trap-and-truck operation of Idaho-bound endangered sockeye salmon, due to high water temperatures in the Snake and Salomon rivers, netted enough fish at the Granite Dam in eastern Washington, last month, to sustain an elaborate hatchery program.
