Awww Shucks

Have you heard about Sarah Palin's involvement with the secessionist movement in Alaska? Yes, that's right, the woman who is the Republican nominee for VP, and could be a heartbeat away from the presidency has been involved in a group which wants to secede from the U.S. Her husband was a party member for 7 years. I won't belabor the issue as the article I've linked tells it better than I can. If I'm ever required to get a background check, I'm hiring the folks who did hers. ;) I feel safer already.
Todd Palin can guffaw about the PTA all he wants, but their organizational ties to the AIP (Alaskan Independence Party) are the real story of who these "down home" people really are.
I invite and encourage you to pass this info on.

I won't pass it on because it is false information.
see this link at the New York Times.

Nooooo - I did not say that she was a member of the AIP - I said she was involved with the AIP and that HER HUSBAND was a member for 7 years. Looks pretty clear to me.
But can you imagine the reverse. The Nation of Islam once proclaimed that they wanted to separate from the U.S. Imagine if Michelle Obama had been a member of the Nation of Islam for 7 years, and that Barack Obama had sent them a taped greeting affirming how important they are to the political process as recent as let's say 2008...
We would not even be having this discussion because he wouldn't have even got his foot in the door, much less be the nominee.
