National Discourse Forecast

If you agree with Susan Eisenhower that "our national discourse has turned into a petty squabble," just wait a few days. The question of who to elect as President of the United States is about to center on why 17 year old Bristol Palin "may be holding a blanket over her abdomen in public when she's turned to the side towards the cameras."

This is what comes of nominating the ex-mayor of a dinky town the size of Pensacola Beach to be second-in-line with her finger on the nuclear button. The issues we debate become small-town dinky. Only the consequences remain gargantuan.
