First Broken-Watergate and now this.
Officials of the Alaskan Independence Party say that Palin was once so independent, she was once a member of their party, which, since the 1970s, has been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans to decide whether or not residents of the 49th state can secede from the United States.
“We are a state’s rights party,” says Clark, a self-employed goldminer. The AIP has “a plank that challenges the legality of the Alaskan statehood vote as illegal and in violation of United Nations charter and international law.”
Coming from a family of southerners, I learned early on that “state’s rights” is code for opposition of integration and abortion.
1) What the fuck is wrong with McCain that he can’t vet a veep properly?
2) What the fuck is wrong with Palin that she thought she could get away with this crap? Secret kids and kids-having-kids and membership in a weird political party? This is the aughts, friend—the internet is everywhere and you can’t hide this shit. Why wouldn’t she have brought these issues up in her vetting interview and given the RNC a strategy for dealing?
Because she’s a fucking moron. And a fucking moron shouldn’t be a heartbeat away from—or anywhere near—the presidency.
