My name is Patrick M McCormick and I have created this blog as a platform for my political views as well as those of select contributors.

I believe that American Politicians have lost sight of their goal: To uphold the Constitution and protect the rights of the people of the United States. They argue and bicker on the floor of their respective houses, positioning themselves for the next election, while they accomplish very little business for the citizens of this country.

Meanwhile our economy is sliding downward. Millions of our precious jobs have have been exported overseas. Our social safety net and other public services are being cut. Our middle class is rapidly disappearing and the numbers of citizens existing below the poverty line is increasing dramatically.

I plan to examine the causes of these terrible changes to our American way of life. Your comments will help us all arrive at some important conclusions.

Is Sarah Palin Really a Mama Grizzly ?

Sarah Palin recently accused her snickering little critics of being "Impotent" and "Limp". Those words are rocketing around the media and the internet.

Ms Palin could put all of her critics down by taking half a dozen of the limpest and wimpiest of them on a moose hunt in the wilds of her home state. To prove them wrong, all she would have to do is find a willing critter, load her .30-06 Weatherby, take aim and blast that big old bull. If she really wanted to impress the crowd, she could go bag an Alaskan Brown Bear. Wow...what a visual that would make.

Think of it...She could make a pay-per-view event out of the butchery and show the world her Cajones at the same time. I, for one, would be happy to pay.

Here's what I read on CNN

Palin's 'impotent' comments make rounds

Posted: September 3rd, 2010 08:12 AM ET

(CNN) - Sarah Palin has managed to set the blogosphere ablaze again, this time after appearing to use sexual metaphors to slam mainstream media reporters who rely on anonymous sources.

"Those who are impotent and limp and gutless and they go on their anonymous - sources that are anonymous - and impotent, limp and gutless reporters take anonymous sources and cite them as being factual references," Palin said in her criticism of the press. "It just slays me because it's so absolutely clear what the state of yellow journalism is today that they would take these anonymous sources as fact."

The comments, made Wednesday on Sean Hannity's radio program, appeared to be fueled by an unflattering Vanity Fair profile out the same day that, relying heavily on unnamed sources, claimed the former Alaska governor had a 'mean temper.'

"When a story is filled with those, we know it's bogus," she also said.

Palin's latest choice of words made the rounds on countless blogs and Twitter feeds Thursday.

"I agree [with] Palin on overuse of unnamed sources, but calling reporters 'impotent' and 'limp'? Did she have to go there?" tweeted Howie Kurtz, a Washington Post media critic and CNN contributor.
