After what I’ve just read, I’m ready to put my moving plans into motion. I don’t mean to be a defeatist. I just need a plan B, for my sanity. And now it’s final – I’Il will move to another country if . . . I don’t want to utter the words. You know what if.
Let me turn this post over to Salon for yet another day – Glenn Greenwald ROCKS. But you’re not going to like what he has to say:
Perhaps the most disturbing revelation about Palin yet appeared in theTime article linked above — that one of the very first things she did after being elected Mayor was pressure the librarian to ban books which she found offensive in some way:
Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. “She asked the library how she could go about banning books,” he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. “The librarian was aghast.” That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn’t be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving “full support” to the mayor.
59 days, 17 hours, 57 minutes until the election. I’m trying to keep my sanity here. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
