Happy Fourth of July!

Three cheers for the good old US of A. Today I offer a salute to three Republicans. First, here's to Sarah Palin, for her revolutionary new take on Vince Lombardi's famous saying "winners never quit, and quitters never win." She actually said on Friday that finishing the job she was elected to do would be the quitter's way out: "[I]t may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: 'Sit down and shut up,' but that's the worthless, easy path; that's a quitter's way out. And a problem in our country today is apathy. It would be apathetic to just hunker down and 'go with the flow.'" But quitting your job, according to Sarah, is not the quitter's way out.

And a shout out to Senator Charles Grassley, who told one of his constituents that if he wants a health insurance package similar to the senator's, he should get a job with the federal government. So much for the superiority of the private sector that Republicans are always talking about. I look forward to the introduction of Senator Grassley's health insurance reform bill, whereby any American who needs decent health insurance will be offered a job with the federal government.

Finally, for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who I understand is worried that President Obama is trying to do too much, watch this:

Yes we can!
