Sarah Palin Finally Says Something I Can Agree With

I find Sarah Palin to be one of those batshit luminaries on the right, in the same company as Michelle Bachmann, Ann Coulter and many others (including a newcomer, hotel tycoon/host of The Apprentice, Donald Trump).  She has said many ridculous and outrageous things, although I think it's dangerous to dismiss the impact she can have on the country if she runs next year.  However, in this article outlining the potential GOP candidates' stances on marijuana legalization, she finally said something on the topic that makes a lot of sense, and that I can agree with.  I do not expect her to maintain this position while formally running for president though, or even holding the office.

"If somebody's gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems that we have in society...and not concentrate on such a relatively speaking minimal problem."
