Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Finally, Someone Gets It!

You just might have noticed that the MSM...and pretty much everyone on the left hates Sarah Palin.  Most of them know absolutely nothing about her, but merely parrot talking points of the the DNC.  But, someone gets it.  The Left hates her because she is the embodiment of just what feminism is supposed to be about, but still rejects it. 
The media started attacking Palin as soon as she was nominated by John McCain to be vice president and they have continued ever since. Tina Fey's performances on "Saturday Night Live" got people to actually believe that Palin really did claim she could see Russia from her house.

Plus she is the obvious front runner for the GOP nomination in 2012.  The next nearest is Mitt Romney, though he's painted as the "heir apparent", but,
his failure to repudiate his Massachusetts health-care “reform” disaster probably dooms his candidacy.

The rest of the field is just as problem ridden.  But more importantly, the bias of the media is astounding! 
Of course, Democrats are virtually immune from such coverage in the mainstream media. Barack Obama's intelligence is never questioned, even though he refuses to disclose his college or law school grades, but the list of his gaffes are almost endless. Obama uses a TelePrompter for a reason. Take him telling supporters on May 9, 2008: "I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii . . . ." But a Google news search shows only six news stories mentioning the "57 states" mention over the first three days (virtually all in conservative publications) and only 14 after a week.

Since becoming president, Obama has called Europe a country. He misspelled the city of "Syracuse" twice, even though the word was spelled correctly next to where he was writing it. And he said that the Constitution was written "20 centuries" ago, the FBI was founded "100 days" ago when he meant 100 years, "Austrian" is a language, breathalyzers are used to treat asthma, and that he is working hard to "halt the rise of privacy," not piracy. None of these cases got more than a few minor mentions in news stories in the months after the gaffe.
But then, that's the price you have to pay for not having the "right" politics.
