Candidates in glass igloos shouldn’t throw stone snowballs

Oh, Sarah, do you know whacha done, by golly? You’ve potentially opened a Joe six-pack of whoops-ass upon you, your family and your party by trying to link Barack Obama with some guy who started a political movement (albeit professing violence and radical views) when little Barack was a mere youth of 8.
You claim that Barack “pals around with terrorists” yet you sleep with a guy who was a dues-paying member of a secessionist party in your home state of Alaska – a group you addressed as a governor and mayor and attended functions when your hubby Todd was just a face in the crowd.
Does THAT make the Toddster, the First Dude, a secessionist? A radical? Secession, as people in the South, and NOT meaning Minnesota to you, learned the hard way, is NOT an enduring term.
Please check out the following link to an article in The Atlantic:
And this website about the Alaska Independence Party;

From the group’s own website:
The Alaskan Independence Party’s goal is the vote we were entitled to in 1958, one choice from among the following four alternatives:
1) Remain a Territory.
2) Become a separate and Independent Nation.
3) Accept Commonwealth status.
4) Become a State.

The call for this vote is in furtherance of the dream of the Alaskan Independence Party’s founding father, Joe Vogler, which was for Alaskans to achieve independence under a minimal government, fully responsive to the people, promoting a peaceful and lawful means of resolving differences.

And then a little info about the AIP founder, the late Joe Vogler, a strange man with weird ideas to MOST Americans.
From Wikipedia:
“The Alaskan Independence Party quotes Vogler as stating “I’m an Alaskan, not an American. I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.”
“In a 1991 interview currently housed at the Oral History Program in the Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Vogler is recorded as saying, ‘The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government. And I won’t be buried under their damn flag. I’ll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation, they can bring my bones home.’”
Geez whiz, who is the real radical??????? If Todd isn't associated with Vogler, why is Obama a "pal" of someone he openly disavows????????
Eh? Wink at that.
