From 1995 to 2002 Todd Palin husband of She who would be the next vice president was a card carrying member of the Anti-American Alaskan Independence Party. The smoking gun came in registration records supplied by the Alaska Division of Elections.
This same woman who wants to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency told the separatist group “Keep up the good work,” in a videotaped speech to their convention six months ago in Fairbanks. She wished the party luck on what she called its “inspiring convention.
What was Senator McCain thinking when he selected Sarah Palin? “Which country first” one might ask considering the radical political ties of Governor Palin’s husband Todd, the United States or the independent Republic of Alaska?
The GOP wants to talk about patriotism and character; I’d like the Governor of Alaska to clarify her position on loyalty to the constitution of the United States.
At what point do we begin to ask questions about the Governors judgment in addressing a group of neo-radicals who preach what amounts to sedition. McCain surrogates have set the bar high for Governor Palin’s acceptance speech. We are assured all of America will fall in love with Sarah Palin the hockey Mom and spunky outsider who single handedly took on the corrupt Alaskan republican power structure and has reformed it top to bottom
For those of us who live in the real world It becomes evident with every passing day, Senator McCain dropped the ball in the Palin vetting process and try as they might to redirect the topic to her skills as moose hunter and Mayor, I speculate the GOP for all the glitz and hype will leave the convention a party unified but saddled with a veep who’s views, behavior and actions raise serious questions with a great many undecided voters.
