Who Has Sarah Been Palling Around With?

Secessionists. h/t The Jed Report

And for those who think the press is biased. David Talbot asks this excellent question.

Imagine the uproar if Michelle Obama was revealed to have joined a black nationalist party whose founder preached armed secession from the United States and who enlisted the government of Iran in his cause? The Obama campaign would probably not have survived such an explosive revelation. Particularly if Barack Obama himself was videotaped giving the anti-American secessionists his wholehearted support just months ago.
The petty attacks on Obama's character regarding the inconsequential meetings with William Ayers don't compare to the Palins' hatred for this country and its people. A hatred not based on their support for Alaskan independence, but rather on their belief that Americans are so gullible to believe their lies.

Inconsequential? Obama launched his first political campaign from Ayers living room. He and Ayers worked together on numerous projects, and Obama was able to steer tons of taxpayer dollars into Ayers radical education plan. Oh, and Ayers actually bombed the pentagon and the Capitol. I don't recall hearing of any Alaskans bombing anything.

You've got your GOP talking points down pat. I've read that almost word for word a few times now.

I would suggest you read the NY Times article. It gives a much more balanced look at this than what you've provided, which is directly from the Rove handbook.
