Here’s a new word for the English (American English) Dictionary and a new concept for American Politics: Palinization! Can you believe it? Basically, it’s defined as the dumbing down of the Republican Party.

Terrific piece by Kathleen Parker in the Washington Post
Here’s a good piece to read from the Washington Post and Kathleen Parker. It will explain why your Republican friends – friends you know are bright and sharp – are accepting this bull being presented to them by the Republican Party candidates.
John Huntsman, once a candidate for the Republican nomination for presidential candidacy ruined all his chances with too many intelligent comments. For example, he suggested “that he trusts scientists on global warming.” Well, that’s certain death in today’s wounded and whimpy Republican Party!
Read Parker’s opinion column. She tries to explain why your very intelligent Republican friends are crossing their fingers and looking the other way. “Rush Limbaugh says that climate change is a hoax and so it must be. Huntsman may as well be a Democrat.”
If there’s a question too complicated that you can’t handle it as a candidate (a la Herman Cain), just blame the media for asking the question.
Who knows where this anti-intellectual express train is going? Frankly, it’s frightening to see politicians like Palin, Bachmann, Cain and Perry so highly regarded. Personally, I believe in the American people too much to ever think they could finally put forward anyone of these dummies as a candidate for office. There are conservatives with brains, you know. Remember Ronald Reagan! Consider Newt Gingrich! And, there’s also Mint Romney (though he often appears to be trying to dumb himself down!)
I tried to listen to Herman Cain on David Letterman’s show the other night. It gave me a bad headache. Cain thinks he’s playing to fools.
The Republican Party has become the party of the unbelievable! Read that the way you wish!
