Sunrise over Eastern Point, York Harbor, Maine, day before yesterday: The summer solstice, when the sun reaches its northernmost point in our firmament (left in image).
"Not a shocker at all," writes Lightwave in the comments to our "Nikki Haley For the Win!" crossposted at Riehl World View, a fresh, insightful reading of the tea leaves:
The real story is that this should be a permanent end to all Liberal and Lamestream Media noise about the Tea Party being a racist, sexist, Caucasians-only movement too.
It's an AMERICAN REVOLUTION. Emphasis on American. Always has been. Now there's ironclad proof. The race and gender cards can't and won't work anymore.
The Dems are doomed as a party to irrelevance after just four years in power.
Nikki Haley's big win is a big win at Memeorandum this morning too, second among equals to the entrail-rich Inside-the-Beltway chatter about "Why McChrystal Has to Go." We're heading over there now to feast on the corpse.
Update: "The way for Haley to disarm the media and beat back the political attacks is, of course, to be at the top of her game," writes Jennifer Rubin in "Nikki Fever," another fresh, insightful analysis on this morning after:
She was endorsed and greatly aided by Sarah Palin, whose treatment by the media should serve as a warning. Beautiful conservative women are not treated well by the mainstream media. And Haley should keep in mind that liberals and their mainstream-media allies generally treat minorities who are conservative especially roughly. If they happen to be devout Christians, well then, they really need to watch out …
Although Chris Christie may be the un-Haley in outward appearance, his approach is the right one: be the happy warrior, apply conservative values, reject the entreaties to “get along” with the political establishment, and avoid even the appearance of impropriety.
