Can you imagine the reaction if Barack Obama courted or belonged to a political party that advocated secession from the United States?
Conservatives and political commentators would go apoplectic. So why isn’t Sarah Palin’s affiliation with the far right Alaskan Independence Party (AIP) a bigger deal?
Todd Palin was a member of the party from 1995 to 2002. Sarah attended the group’s convention in 1994 and 2000 and sent a videotaped greeting for the AIP in 2008.
If Sarah Palin wasn’t a secessionist, then why was she palling around with them?
