Two years ago today (two years and a day if you are in the Eastern time zone or read this when you wake up in the morning) Governor Palin gave one of the most significant speeches of her career. While in Indianola, Iowa, she spoke to a couple of thousand Tea Party activists and put everyone on notice that she was coming after the permanent political class and the crony capitalism they love so much. There is no question this spooked the establishments of both political parties. While Governor Palin is certainly not the first person to talk about this and won’t be the last, I think it’s safe to to say she has been the most prominent politician to take this up. It helps that she has credibility on this, as this has kind of been her thing since her political career began back in the early 1990s. There is a lot of work ahead, and while we all know the problems she talked about two years ago will not be solved by one person, or with one election cycle, or one administration, it is my hope that the day will come when the speech Governor Palin gave in a field in Indianola, Iowa on 9/3/2011 will no longer be necessary.
