MSNBC headline: Palin e-mails reveal a powerful ‘first dude’.

With the Tea Party convention in full swing this weekend, and the Beltway snowed in, can there be any doubt Fox News channel will get plenty of eyes Saturday night?

However, the laugh out loud of the week is the rambling exhale in the Washington Post all about liberal condescension.

This condescension is part of a liberal tradition that for generations has impoverished American debates over the economy, society and the functions of government — and threatens to do so again today, when dialogue would be more valuable than ever.

Honestly, an op-ed from one of American Enterprise Institute’s speakers. How shocking liberal condescension is the topic.

Evidently in all his studies, Mr. Alexander forgot to pay attention to William F. Buckley, who said conservatism is basically defined by what they’re against. So, when you take the Swift Boat veterans, the “birther” wing of the Tea Partiers, cut out the Atwater – Rove branch of the GOP, the homophobic amendments branch made to drive the vote, the anti women’s civil rights branch, all you really have is a bunch of stand up and rail reactionaries. Republicans don’t create ideas and solutions, they oppose them. That’s there m.o. Even Buckley said so.

Enjoy your weekend. The floor is yours.
