>The author of Daddy’s Roommate is shocked–shocked–that Sarah Palin disapproves of his book.

  1. >Not to mention that most of the people with “small town minds” know how to use a shotgun.


    Small-Town Gal (pop. 50, except in flood years)

  2. >and it’s not just a matter of thinking before you speak–it’s also a good idea to interrogate the prejudices that such words are based on.

    small-town america = roots, family, and heritage for many people, even for a whole lot of city folk.

    i can’t stand but a few of her political positions, but the gal reminds me of several of my favorite aunts and i admire the heck out of her feminine strength, her commitment to her family and to walking the walk of her faith, and even her mountain cat ferocity.

    cuz i so hope Barack Obama wins in November, i really hope lots of liberal leaning people will listen well to cautious like this.

  3. >free advertising for all the books on that list!

  4. >”Mortal enemy,” huh? Who speaks like that anymore?
