The evidence is mounting that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is part of America’s extreme, racist, anti-Semitic and anti-government political movement.
As reported in today's Salon.com by Max Blumenthal and David Neiwert, Palin’s political career has been mentored and financially supported by a collection of secessionists, militia leaders, One World paranoids, Christian theocrats and anti-Semites, including, but not limited to, Mark Chryson and “Old Joe” Vogler of the Alaskan Independence Party.
She may not be able to name the newspapers she reads, but there is photographic evidence that she reads the magazine of the John Birch Society.
And, as we noted last week, Palin appears to be surprizingly quite familiar with former Bush lawyer John Yoo’s constitutional law rationale for an imperial presidency whose power is unlimited by the courts or Congress.
Our first view of Palin was that, in regard to substance, she was far less than she appeared.
Now I think that she may be far more.
