    oh dear, so many links. Looks like I really should have sent a linkfest out yesterday before I got started reading posts for today!

    Thank you for aiding my procrastination in a very boring day at work! (Seriously! I think it’s taken two hours for the clock to move 40 minutes!)

    The fifth link down doesn’t work. I’m not sure if that’s you or the blogger.

    Hm – Violet Socks seems to have unpublished that post.

    Just went and checked the post as it was published to my feed-reader – maybe she hadn’t quite finished with it and published it by accident when I caught it the first time around. Anyway, she was linking to Sarah Palin’s Facebook (where she does a lot of her broadcasting of her positions) and Palin’s An Open Letter to Republican Freshmen Members of Congress.

    It’s a pastiche of populist slogans all based around the nastiest I’ve-got-mine-the-rest-of-you-can-go-to-hell streak of American Exceptionalism (y’know, the one that simultaneously says Leave Me Alone To Mind My Own Business But Don’t You Dare Do Anything Over There That I Don’t Like)
