The Day of DOOM.

What we could do, we have done; it’s up to the voters now.  That’s you, so make sure you vote.

Odd: I’ve been preparing for this day since November of 2006 – admittedly, I thought that it’d come in November of 2008 – and I find that the somewhat (melo)dramatic things that I had in mind to write aren’t really all that appropriate.  Even the national party is trying to keep things low-key tonight (which is smart of Rep. John Boehner).

So no drama.  Just go vote.

Moving back to the article, it is itself fairly familiar, to those following the attempts of the Democrats to inflict cap-and-trade on America without having to take responsibility for it afterward.  It takes the reasonable note that, in a situation where we need to put more into the economy, cap-and-trade will take out more from it: more jobs lost, more regulations imposed, more costs to do business: Continue reading Gov Palin: ‘The ‘Cap And Tax’ Dead End.’
