The big news, obviously, in the blogosphere today is John McCain’s surprise pick for the Republican veep nominee–a relative unknown by the name of Sarah Palin, whom–at least in the more conventional political circles–would appear to be a complete cypher.
Unfortunately, if one digs just a bit deeper, Palin is found to have some very interesting–and very disturbing–connections…among them, being potentially the first Assemblies-linked VP candidate and having a number of links to dominionist groups targeting kids via “bait and switch” evangelism. […]
I haven’t seen or heard a single thing that makes me think Sarah Palin would be a good VP, much less President. (And make no mistake,that’s a very real possibility.) This, though, scares me to no end. If nothing else would make you vote Obama, this should. Read this DailyKos diary, and when you are done, read The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood. Props to dogemperor for her excellent (as always) insight and research.
