The Vancat can seat 16 passengers along with everyone’s snow gear, and if that wasn’t enough, the roof has been chopped up and turned into a canopy so your snowbunny passengers can enjoy the scenery. The Vancat is currently for sale with a reduced (and apparently negotiable) asking price of $30,000.
Remember how Obama Administration officials said “I think that health care, over time, is going to become more popular?” Well, it’s not: Half of All States Now Suing to Stop Obamacare.
However, since the left seems intently focused on casting that blame, and given the fact that the map used by Palin seems to be in the center of that focus, let’s roll back the clock to the year 2004. The map on the left was on a page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website during the years of the Bush presidency. The question I have is this. If a map such as this is political taboo, why does the same taboo not apply to the rhetoric coming from the left?

You see, when a tragedy like this strikes, it is part of our nature to demand explanations – to try to impose some order on the chaos, and make sense out of that which seems senseless. Already we’ve seen a national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health systems. Much of this process, of debating what might be done to prevent such tragedies in the future, is an essential ingredient in our exercise of self-government.
Like many, I’ve spent the past few days reflecting on what happened and praying for guidance. After this shocking tragedy, I listened at first puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements from people attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event.
President Reagan said, “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.” Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election.
