In case you were wondering just how a completely unqualified lunatic like Sarah Palin got nominated to the office of Vice President, wonder no more. This is the Republican Party’s concession to the Religious Right.
The Nation reports that the influential and secretive Council for National Policy got together during the DNC to meet and talk with Palin. Apparently they were impressed. Which is hardly surprising, considering her documented connections with some of the most extreme elements of the Dominionist movement. We’re not just talking about a religious conservative, but a Joel’s Army level wingnut.
Just the sort of absolute treason that anyone who values democracy should oppose.
