First of all, a message from Governor Palin to the AIP:
Now, a little bit of history:
Voglerâ€™s greatest moment of glory was to be his 1993 appearance before the United Nations to denounce United States â€œtyrannyâ€ before the entire world and to demand Alaskaâ€™s freedom. The Alaska secessionist had persuaded the government of Iran to sponsor his anti-American harangue.
Yep, Iran. As in, “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran!” Of course, it’s not particularly relevant that Iran supported Vogler’s speech, but neither is it particularly relevant that Obama sat on the same board of education that Ayers was a member of (a board which many Republicans sat on as well).
So, if we’re going to play the “Guilt by association with folks who long ago were terrorists”, why not throw this one into the mix? Because the AIP no longer supports the violent overthrow of the Federal government? So what? Ayers doesn’t either. I’ve already mentioned that I don’t approve of this sort of blame throwing, but as the McCain/Palin campaign continues their strategy of “Don’t vote for the terrorist! He’s going to eat your babies!”, I think it’s important to know who’s saying it.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Sarah Palin.

McCain/Palin: Afraid of the issues, telling more lies.
