Glass Houses/Stones

What is this country coming to?  Why, I just learned that one of the Vice Presidential candidates has been palling around with traitors, and working with those who consider America so imperfect that they would secede from this great land.  In fact, this candidate has even been sleeping with at least one of them!
Yes, I am shocked and alarmed to hear that Sarah Palin has been closely associated with one Todd Palin, an America-hater who was a card-carrying member of the Alaska Independence Party (AIP) from 1995 to 2002.
And just what is the AIP?  Well, let’s ask their official web site:
Q: What is the Alaskan Independence Party?
A: An Alaskan political party whose members advocate a range of solutions to the conflicts between federal and local authority; from advocacy for state’s rights, through a return to territorial status, all the way to complete independence and nationhood status for Alaska.
And if they did become an independent nation, I guess Sarah Palin would be their queen.  And then it would be lese majestyfor Tina Fey to make fun of her!
And what did AIP founder, Joe Vogler, have to say about America (the country that Sarah claims to believe is so exceptional)?  Well, here’s a quote from that AIP web site:
“I’m an Alaskan, not an American. I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.”
As we know, a candidate should be judged by the people with whom they are tangentially associated.  So, I think it’s pretty obvious that Sarah is an America-hater who would nuke Washington if she ever got the keys to our atomic weapons,
Interestingly enough, Lynette Clark, chairwoman of the AIP, had this to say about Sarah Palin herself:
“I’ve admired Sarah from the first time I met her at the 2006 (AIP) convention,” which Palin also addressed. [...] “I thought to myself, ‘My God, she sounds just like Joe Vogler.’”
So, quiz time: who said the following, Joe or Sarah?
 Volger                     Palin, addressing AIP convention
1.  “The fires of Hell are glaciers compared to my hate for the American government, and I won’t be buried under their damn flag.”
2.  “There is more Justice in a whorehouse than in the Supreme Court. And if they don’t like they know where they can go.”
3.  “The problem with you John Birchers’ is that you are too damn liberal.”  
4.  “As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state.”
Yes, it was a trick: Sarah said all of the above.
Anyway, as you go about your business today, here’s another quote to think about — it comes from a San Francisco Chronicle story (”Palin swings through state – and at Obama“) about Sarah’s appearances in Northern CA.
Palin was introduced to the adoring crowd Sunday by prominent Silicon Valley financier Tom Siebel as “the embodiment of pure, unadulterated good.”

I bet that good took a major nosedive in the market after THAT announcment!
