I Guess The Military Isn’t Big Government

Sarah Palin confuses the hell out of me. How does she take so many different positions on the same issue and not get whiplash?

It’s a neat trick to earn kudos among the conservative base for refusing federal stimulus money, then take the money anyway, all while blaming the media for “mischaracterizing” her position. It’s all so confusing.

Meanwhile, I noticed this little gem from a couple of weeks ago:
3/16/2009 - EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska --Personnel from Eielson were part of a team that participated in a joint Air Force, Army and Navy medical and dental exercise in 11 of Western Alaska's most remote villages March 6 through 15, bringing no-cost health care and veterinary support to underserved populations in the Yukon-Kuskokwin Delta region as part of the 15th annual Operation Arctic Care. 

I’m thrilled our military is providing this kind of care to remote villages in Alaska, which desperately need it. I’m just curious if Gov. Palin considers this super-scary Canadian-style DFH socialized/commie bastard red healthcare.

Isn’t this a government giveaway? An “experiment in socialism”?

I guess not. If it comes with a military escort, I guess it’s OK.

Good to know.
