"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Girl of the Day - Michelle Bachmann

Michelle Bachmann appears to have been the big winner of the first GOP debate, coming out of it as the leading alternative to Mitt Romney for Republicans who want a less squishy conservative at the head of their ticket.   Could she pull it off?   I don't think so.... once Rick Perry gets in, Bachmann will sink.   But she's a formidable fund-raiser among Tea Party activists, and, as the mother of five and foster mother to 23 children in the past, she's also perhaps our most persuasive pro-Life voice.
