    Mark Steyn, in turn, contends in the National Review that Palin is not just "'all-American', but hyper-American. What other country in the developed world produces beauty queens who hunt caribou and serve up a terrific moose stew?... Next to her resume, a guy who's done nothing but serve in the phony-baloney job of 'community organizer' and write multiple autobiographies looks like just another creepily self-absorbed lifelong member of the full-time political class that infests every advanced democracy."

      or Buffalo Bill would have been better presidential candidates than John Quincy Adams or Abraham Lincoln?

      Wow, I never thought about it that way.  Just THINK of where our country could have gone, with those guys at the helm instead of the educated, thoughtful, serious, lifelong political types we actually ended up with as presidents throughout most of American history.

        These "hyper-Americans" actually want a Buffalo Bill/Davey Crockett type country.  Rugged individualism, baby!

          have a beer with Davy Crockett? Clearly that makes him fit to be President.
