GOP Risks Doublespeak with Palin

It's the tried and true, "cheer for this talking point, even though it's contrary to the one we had you cheering for five minutes ago" tactic at last night's RNC. And that talking point is the word risk.

Ru Gui comes on strong saying we can't risk having someone with Obama's lack of experience in the Whitehouse. It's too dangerous.

Minutes later, Governor Palin is telling us we have to take risks. She says, "It's safe to keep the ship tied up in the harbor, but that's not what it was built for." (An old Inuit saying?)

I think Risk is a good, healthy exercise. I usually try to establish a presence in Asia and Australia first, and then expand westward through Kamchatka to North America.
