Putting Country First

"The fires of Hell are glaciers compared to my hate for the American government, and I won’t be buried under their damn flag.”

The patriotic words were uttered by Joe Vogler, head of the Alaskan Independence Party. Though the media filter prefers to talk about Obama's church, Sarah Palin's husband Todd was a registered member of the AIP for 5 years, and the Palins attended the 2000 AIP convention. Sarah herself has also addressed the group, telling them to "Keep up the good work." Is that putting country first?

More to the point, according to right-wing bloggers who insist on judging Obama on the basis of all the people he's ever met or stood next to, what lessons shall we learn about Queen Sarah from her association with Joe Vogler?

Housekeeping note: Last night, Jon Stewart called Sarah the "She-Bush." I think that one's a keeper, don't you?
