Sarah Pal'in around with anti-Americans

Slate has written an expose that calls to mind the adage about how people that live in glass houses (or igloos) should not cast stones. Sarah Palin cheered on the activities of the Alaska Independence Party, a party founded by a man who denounced that United States in front of the United Nations with Iran as his sponsor.
Palin's husband Todd was a registered member of the party for 7 years, and Governor Palin, as recently as this year, sent a 'shout-out' to secessionist party telling it to "keep up the good work."
Condemning the United States with a fundamentalist Islamic dictatorship's encouragement is good work? Does the party still have connections to Iran? Palin is a supporter of this movement, and she called upon the almighty to "bless it" and its America hating members.
Sarah Palin should have examined her present before criticizing Senator Obama. Barack Obama has condemned the activities of William Ayers, and his connection to Ayers is tenuous at best. Will the Palins do the same?
Maybe not. Alaska Independence Party leader, chairwoman Lynette Clark, believes that Sarah Palin and America-hating party founder Joe Vogler are kindred spirits. Slate quotes Clark saying, "She's Alaskan to the bone ... she sounds just like Joe Vogler."
The people of Alaska know Sarah Palin best, and we have only known her for five weeks. Sarah says that she listens to the folks back home - perhaps we should too.
Vogler once said, "I hope we don't have to take human life, but if they go on tramping on our property rights, look out, we're ready to die," and threatened the lives of government officials. Thankfully, he was never given the opportunity to act upon his threats against the American people. He certainly did not put his country first.
The article is an interesting read, and really calls into question the anti-American activities of Sarah Palin and her husband.
From the article:
That's right ... Iran. The Islamic dictatorship. The taker of American hostages. The rogue nation that McCain and Palin have excoriated Obama for suggesting we diplomatically engage. That Iran.
