    Sarah Palin notified Emmons she would be fired in January 1997 because the mayor didn’t feel she had the librarian’s “full support.” Emmons was reinstated the next day after public outcry, according to newspaper reports at the time.

    The Rev. Howard Bess, a liberal Christian preacher in the nearby town of Palmer, said the church Palin and her family attended until 2002, the Wasilla Assembly of God, was pushing to remove his book from local bookstores.

    Emmons told him that year that several copies of “Pastor I Am Gay” had disappeared from the library shelves, Bess said.

    Another reason why choosing Palin as McCain's VP choice was a mistake.

    Who think this is Anita Bryant all over again?

    Oh yeah, Anita Bryant and worse. At least Bryant didn't shoot moose, and already have the powers of a Governorship in her own hands, and possibly much more if we don't get out the vote in November.

    But Palin for VP isn't a "mistake" for Republicans if it achieves their aim of getting McCain elected President. To date it's been a pretty shrewd, if cynical, move. I hope she energizes Democrats as much as she energizing Republicans.

    More totally false propaganda. CNN, and others, has already researched this to the hilt and proven it was NOT TRUE just like so many of the other false and ridiculous rumors about Palin. The irony of it all is that who ever is out there working overtime to bring down Palin and make her look bad is only adding fuel to the increasingly growing fire of her popularity. Heck, maybe they should report that she's the devil incarnate herself -- really seal the win for McCain/Palin ticket.

    In addition she just wanted a new wing of the library added that would be purely dedicated to creation science. Here is the preview website that would accompany it from her new church ..

    For most of us, I don't think it matters if she is painted as a saint or cast as a daemon, we won't vote for her based on her views towards LGBTs, and her lack of experience for the office she wishes to hold.

    OMG!!!

    I guess thats why I feel the Palin woman disaster was so ill conceived for this country.

    Again, to be reasonable, all this should be confirmed by a couple of sources, but it doesn't bode well....

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/09/11/former-gop-senator-calls-palin-a-'cocky-wacko'/ Former Rhode Island Sen. Lincoln Chafee was known for keeping a low-key profile on Capitol Hill, but the Republican -turned -Independent is making waves with his exceedingly blunt comments on newly-minted Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin:

    She's a "cocky wacko," he told a Washington think tank earlier this week.

    "People were coming into my office, phone calls were flooding in, e-mails were coming in, 'I just sent money to Obama, I couldn't sleep last night' — from the left. To see this cocky wacko up there," he said.

    Move over Anita!!! Here comes Palin to save our souls!!

    http://www.usnews.com/articles/news/campaign-2008/2008/09/10/conservatives-want-palin-to-be-given-role-in-shaping-mccains-social-agenda.htmlIf elected vice president, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin should be given the role in a McCain administration of helping to form the social agenda and weighing in on judicial picks, a key conservative leader told reporters today.
    ....
    Panning current Vice President Dick Cheney's role on those issues, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said that he expects Palin to be an activist on social and morals issues, especially those that deal with education and special-needs children

    Actually, CuriousJock is right. Many of the rumors about Sarah are turning out to be distortions. Even the librarian she fired said there was no effort to ban books -- only that Sarah did ask how the librarian would deal with such a request. Nor has she made any effort to add creationism to the curriculum, only favoring its discussion in class if chosen to do so.

    Perhaps this is an example of the left taking the same low road as Republicans.
