Michael Kinsley, must read

At some point the war on Palin will need to end -- and I would like a clear timetable for that -- but for now, we've got the enemy on the run, and she's in her last throes.

Michael Kinsley has a column in Time that you must read. It presents the sharpest contrast yet between Governor Palin and candidate Palin.
Alaska is, in essence, an adjunct member of OPEC. It has four different taxes on oil, which produce more than 89% of the state's unrestricted revenue. On average, three-quarters of the value of a barrel of oil is taken by the state government before that oil is permitted to leave the state.
