In answering about a dozen questions, Palin said some combination of "solutions," "conservative" and "commonsense" twenty-five times. Is this an interview or a drinking game? Was Rush rewarding her by tossing her fish?

"common" is the key. If it's "common" then anyone, AND I MEAN ANYONE, can think of themselves as clever and intelligent enough to fix all the problems. Remember, if it's not simple then most people won't bother with it so everything is broken down down down until there seems to be one easy little thing that will fix all the problems.

It's like pulling on a loose thread to fix something, unaware that you are unraveling a huge tapestry. Everyone sees the thread, few people see the tapestry.
