Occasional notes on current events, books and more, by Kenneth Silber
Richard V. is right on --- 100%.Those who are appalled at Frum's excommunication don't make a strong case by saying Palin's gotta go. For Buchananite anti-Americanism,fine, but not for a Reaganite gaffe.
Palin's Fed comment I cited in the other post is not just a Reaganite gaffe (nor the only example of her falling short on facts). It was also an attempt at pandering to Glenn Beck/Ron Paul conspiracists. Would Reagan have done that?(Incidentally, Reagan had doubts whether we need a Fed but as long as it existed was strongly committed to its monetary policy independence -- probably more than any other president.)
