Separatist But Equal


So Sarah Palin wants to accuse Barack Obama of "pallin’ around with terrorists" because he has a very distant acquaintance with a member of the Weather Underground? Really?

That’s an awfully daring strategy, considering that not only is she sleeping with a former member of the Alaskan Independence Party (AIP), a radical separatist movement whose founder died in an explosives deal gone bad, she’s cc’ing him on government e-mails and letting him sit in on government meetings.

And if that’s not enough, she tried to install a right-wing militia member on Wasilla’s city planning board when she was mayor, and she recorded a very supportive video address for the AIP’s convention this year, telling the secessionists to "keep up the good work."

So, what’s worse? Being vaguely associated with anti-American radicals, or marrying them and giving them pep talks and a prominent role in your government?

And I haven’t even mentioned John McCain’s good friends Charles Keating and G. Gordon Liddy. Whoops! I guess I just have.
