    Outrage: Sarah Palin puts a former Klansman in charge of her agenda

    Story is here. Read and vote accordingly.

    I don't think Sarah Palin is an extremist, nor do I think Obama is. It's obviously not the best move politically to put an extremist in such a position. However, by doing so, one can't exactly expect people to not draw conclusions and make such connections. You are basically handing them ammo.

    Give me a goddamned break. Obama could qualify as a left-wing extremist in Nazi germany, but not in a civilized, educated nation. It's a pathetic example of how US politics exists in a right-wing bubble that a nationalistic capitalist moderate politician has you all freaking out as if he is a Marxist because he's showing the slightest regard for populist middle class politics.

    I love to watch you squirm though. So much so that I'm beginning to think that the development of a real left in this country might be worthwhile. I mean, all this fuss about Obama, all the freaking out and stockpiling of guns... What if we actually had some actual socialists in positions of power?? Heads would explode. The old confederacy would secede.

    Now why would Palin put Robert KKK Byrd on her staff?

    I voted maybe. I do think that if the president was a republican and he appointed a former klansman the media would have had a field day with this, but since the president is a liberal and the racist/extremist in question was a member a black supremacist group the media doesn't give a ****. Appointing such people to positions does have to make one wonder,after all birds of a feather flock together.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Sorry Dude, an educated nation doesn't elect amateurs as heads of state.

    Outrage: Sarah Palin puts a former Klansman in charge of her agenda
    The title of the article is below:
    Imagine Sarah Palin putting a former Klansman in charge of her agenda
    This topic has a very misleading title. Sarah Palin does not have a former Klansman in charge of her agenda. Wayne Anthony Ross was never appointed, and I think it is far more likely Palin didn't know Ross had said and done what he did.

    What bothers me is that the media blew up the story about Palin's nomination, yet has pretty much ignored the fact that Obama has appointed (not just nominated, APPOINTED) an outspoken communist. It doesn't make sense.

    Chill Dude! The misleading title was meant to catch our Liberal Brethren in a net of hypocrisy. The article was to make ‘em face up to the fact by luring them in with a title, and then switching the players in the body.

    I will admit that I had a blistering response all ready before I actually read the article I like these little stratagems from time to time.
