Sarah Palin: Steve Forbes In A Skirt?

We all know that Sarah Palin gave the Best Speech Ever last night. But how does she stand on economics and the issues facing Wall Street?
We turned to a Republican party insider for some clues.
"Palin is the most libertarian candidate we've had in ages. She's a deeply committed tax-cutter. She believes tax cuts boost the economy and believes that individuals spend more efficiently than government. Think Steve Forbes in a skirt," he said.
Our insider, who asked not to be named, also said Palin represents a clean break from the spend-thrift Republican machinery that dominated the party for years. "She genuinely wants smaller government, a government that does less not more," he said.
What about issues such as mortgages, the Federal Reserve, inflation, Fannie Mae and international trade?
"She's not up to speed on those but they're briefing her. She's got all the right instincts, and isn't in hock to the housing and banking lobby, which is a refreshing change," he said. "But we'll have to stay tuned."

Dennis Kozlowski Says Steve Forbes Defamed Him

While he’s not teaching GED courses to fellow inmates, doing laundry for the child molesters in his cell unit and dreaming about vodka-pissing statues, Dennis Kozlowski is busy trying to repair his reputation. He’s given interviews to Morley Safer and other journalists and has been a model prisoner since he was convicted of fraud in 2005. Koz is also, apparently, reading books about himself and now he’s suing billionaire Steve Forbes for what he claims are false and defamatory comments in in Forbes' 2009 book "Power, Ambition, Glory: The Stunning Parallels Between Great Leaders of the Ancient World and Today ... and the Lessons You Can Learn."
