SHOTS ACROSS THE BOW
by Charles Jackson
With twenty-seven day to go, this is still an election too close to call. However, whatever the outcome, Sarah Palin is an invigorating breath of fresh air and she represents a new wind blowing across the country’s political landscape and headed fiercely towards the GOP of old. That wind is blowing from a proud, old American political tradition - Populism.
Remember the 1976 movie, “Network?” Peter Finch’s memorable performance with his “I’m Mad As Hell and I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore!” just about sums up the mood of the country, particularly of everyday, ordinary folks – who’re the country’s foundation.
