My beat around here is Global Warming and Energy. The choice come November could not be starker in these arenas (that is, at least in fact not media framing). The contrast also could not be starker… across a wide range of issues.
Among these, John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin has added a searing issue to the table:
Do we want a separatist with easy access to the centers of power in the nation?
What would it mean to have a Vice President (likely President) sleeping with a separatist?
This question is essentially absent from the pages of traditional media.
Imagine if Michelle Obama were a registered member of the Black Panthers until 2002? Imagine the drumbeat of outrage that all Americans would hear. About Todd "My Guy" Palin’s separatist credentials? Crickets chirping in the night …
Fellow Traveler Sarah?
Sarah Palin has not just been sleeping with a separatist but clearly seems to be in the realm of fellow traveler.
Note that she speaks in this video of Alaska as a "self-sufficient state".
