(CNN) -- It's not often that I agree with Sarah Palin. But when she comes around to a liberal point of view on an issue, that is to be noted with praise. So, good for you, Sarah, for flip-flopping on the issue of hard work.

Palin took to Facebook recently to praise the remarks of liberal actor Ashton Kutcher, who has in the past donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats and participated in a star-studded video pledging, "to serve our President (Obama) and all mankind."

So how did this Hollywood liberal become the darling of Sarah Palin? By speaking out on behalf of a truly liberal value: hard work.

"I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work," Kutcher said in a speech he gave at the Teen Choice Awards. "I've never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a steppingstone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job."

Up until after this point this was a great thing to hear, and a perfect message to our young people..  Then the author weighed in with his spin, as his credentials then became very evident.

Editor's note: Paul Begala, a Democratic strategist and CNN political contributor, was a political consultant for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign in 1992 and was counselor to Clinton in the White House.

If you want to see that you'll have to go to the link.  I refuse to give his partisan opinion by the exploitation of Kuchars words, the light of day.

Everyone has valid knowledge about something Mike.  If I want to learn how to be a successful actor, I'll ask Kutcher any time.  In politics, not so much.

An Excellent Gift. From a Remarkable Wife.

Every year at Christmas, my beautiful Bride proves to me over and over that she has a keen knack for picking just the right gift for me. One year it was a pistol grip style cordless Dremel tool, a tool that has become indispensable to me. Then there was the Nikon 10x32 Prostaff Binoculars. Probably the best pair of binoculars I've ever used. Last year it was a Craftsman 51 piece Max Access socket set.

But this year, she really outdid herself. REALLY.

I have wanted an…

Guns, One Hand Washes The Other

Ten days ago or so, there was a shooting incident inside a Chicago neighborhood bar. I won't give the name but if one were to google something like 'chicago bar shooting' the bare facts won't be difficult to find.

What happened was that there was an argument between two guys in one pub, and one of the two left and walked across the street to a different establishment to continue drinking. Shortly thereafter the second fellow followed the first in to the bar across the street and they…

Crack Whore. Crack Whore. Crack Whore.

My granddaughter is almost 3. She's learning to talk at a really amazing rate. She is learning new words, repeating phrases, even entire sentences that she hears us say, and saying things that we never taught her. I've been fussing at her grandmother and her mom, both of them potty mouths, about their language around the kid. They ARE getting better, but....

Laural and I were playing the other day and Dan-Dan, her dog, ran behind her and…
