“I’m still proud of Sarah, but she scares the bejeebers out of me.”

The New York Times has a fantastic article on Sarah Palin’s background of hiring friends, acting in secret, imposing her extreme religious-right views on others and attempting to intimidate those who disagree with her.

Many of the stories go right to the concern that Palin and McCain represent more George Bush.   And, when lesbians are saying that Sarah Palin is one more bush that we don’t need near the White House – people should listen.

In one of her “good job, Brownie moments,” Palin appointed a friend as the Director of  the State Division of Agriculture.   The high school classmate, Franci Havemeister, was gifted a $95,000-a-year job because the former real estate agent had a childhood love of cows.  Yes, Brownie that would have also qualified you to run the $2 million agency.

The New York Times article also describes Palin’s assistant telephoning a blogger, “You should be ashamed!” Ivy Frye, the assistant, told the blogger. “Stop blogging. Stop blogging right now!”

Here is a good question (think I’ll send it to the in-laws) that Whitstein poses to readers: 

Question? You have 60 Days to know something about this woman Sarah Palin. Why are most of the Christian so called conservative talking heads so easily deceived? I and many others in Wasilla have tried to reveal the true nature of Palin’s creditibility. In my case, I’m a conservative Christian, active Republican in the State of Alaska. Sarah has never been an active participent in this party. Hey, I live here and during these 19 month this woman has provided NO leadership. She has left rotten fruit and abuse of power and corruption as her legacy.

 

The Times article also claims that Palin appointed a pastor to the town planning board and Palin started taking a look at the town’s library.  “People would bring books back censored,” recalled former Mayor John Stein, Ms. Palin’s predecessor. “Pages would get marked up or torn out.”  The article also relates a story from 1995 regarding the children’s book “Daddy’s Roommate.” 

Palin, a city councilwoman, reported that she saw “Daddy’s Roommate” on the shelves of the town’s library.  Others suggested that Palin read it.  Reportedly Palin replied, “she didn’t need to read that stuff.“   One of the women relating the story said, “I’m still proud of Sarah, but she scares the bejeebers out of me.”

Another women who knows Plain says, “I was thinking, I don’t remember giving up my First Amendment rights.  Just because you’re not going gaga over Sarah doesn’t mean you can’t speak your mind.”
