It's about doing something for people and being an advocate for the community you represent. Trump, well, he's done none of that... read more

It's important to understand that the piece is not about Palin, it's about conservative criticism of something involving Palin.Palin attacked The Daily Caller. For several things, all of which are amusing. read more
