Palin and de Tocqueville in the same post! What do we deserve?

CNN reports that Sarah Palin is accusing Barack Obama of consorting with another radical professor:
Gov. Sarah Palin on Wednesday said Sen. Barack Obama has ties to a Columbia University professor who she said is "a former spokesperson for the Palestinian Liberation Organization."...Palin said her assertion "is not negative campaigning to call someone out on their record."

"It seems that there is yet another radical professor from the neighborhood who spent a lot of time with Barack Obama going back several years," Palin said at an event in Bowling Green, Ohio.

"This is important because his associate, Rashid Khalidi ... in addition to being a political ally of Barack Obama, he's a former spokesperson for the Palestinian Liberation Organization."


Read the story. It surfaced 6 months ago. The two were associates at the U. of Chicago. It sounds sinister. (NOT!!)
I didn't vote for Sarah Palin, I guess if I had I wouldn't have to worry about her knowing a radical professor. In fact I wouldn't have to worry about her knowing a professor of any stripe. Ignorance is bliss!
Remember de Tocqueville said that “in a democracy, the people get the government they deserve." That may never be more true. Go vote!
Ciao
