of Palin and Pipelines

The editors of the Washington Post have noticed that Sarah Palin proved palpable political prowess with her work on the natural gas pipeline project. (the Wall Street Journal had already noticed this project.)

their conclusion:

But it is also a sign that Ms. Palin’s outflanking of the oil companies injected some competition and urgency into a process that was previously stalled. Perhaps her Democratic opponent for the governorship in 2006, who campaigned on similar ideas, would have achieved these results. Nevertheless, Ms. Palin actually did.

Hat tip to Jennifer Rubin who adds three excellent points and then this:

“What this suggests is there is indeed a story yet to be told — one of savvy political skills and accomplishment. Provided she successfully navigates her media encounters and the VP debate, she may be even more popular by Election Day as voters learn who the real Palin is.”

  2. Hello RallyGrrrl,

    Thanks for stopping by. I would hope that when it comes to substantive argumentation that you will be able to do better than throw inapposite verbal grenades.

    Come on back anytime you want to actually engage the substance of a post.

    We love a good chat around here.
