Who is Sarah Palin? A Memo from Alaska
I watched Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul. I decided to find out what I could about her, as I know that the conventions are essentially political ads whose primary purpose is, more often than not, to plant a narrative/story in the mind of the public in order to inoculate voters against facts and accusations as the campaign unfolds.
Here’s something I came across that I feel compelled to share. A suburban Anchorage homemaker and activist who fought against a library censorship attempt spearheaded by Ms. Palin when she was mayor, shares her insights and memories of Palin’s Alaska history. I found this interesting enough to share with you, as I think it gives a real alternative to the picture being painted by the McCain campaign regarding what she brings to national politics.
