Girls, Business Folx, and People of Color


It's Palin night at the Xcel Center, and so far everybody at the podium has been a woman, a member of a minority group, an entrepreneur, or all three.

And to tell you the truth, I have no problem with this. This in fact is what I've been looking for from the Republicans: an unabashed assertion that the free market is not a plot against the disenfranchised; it's the best friend the disenfranchised have.

Of course the flip side of this truth is that the free market has no more ardent enemy than a successful businessman. And no politician, Repubican or Democrat, will ever admit that.
