"Congratulations to Governor Sarah Palin for a good debate performance.

"She did as well as could be expected considering she was required to sing John McCain's songs. Conservatives look forward to the day when she can write and sing her own music.

"Note to Governor Palin: The problem is not Wall Street greed!

"You could have turned the presidential election around for the GOP if you had correctly said that America's financial crisis has been caused primarily by the corrupt power-hungry left-wing politicians in Washington, D.C. A culture of corruption has enveloped our politics.

"All progress starts with telling the truth."
