Yes, it says something about character to me too: Yours, Ms Palin. The fact that you believe that people shouldn’t associate with anyone who has opinions and views that differ from their own or that might be “controversial” says way more about you than about someone who has demonstrated his good character time and again.
If you want to be judged by your associations, can we talk about your husband’s membership in the secessionist Alaskan Independence Party? You only have to go back to 1991 (not the 70s) to see the anti-American speech of the AIP’s founder Joe Vogler: ““The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government.” You can’t distance yourself from them, Ms. Palin: you attended their convention in 2000 and apparently addressed it in 2008 (what’s with that blue parka by the way? You just stop by the office on your way to a hockey game? Is governor a full time job in Alaska?)
Surely we should talk about the Russian thugs and their agents that John McCain hangs about with.
Can we discuss the views on marriage of that poor shlub (“I don’t want kids.”) that’s being dragged into marrying your daughter? Oh, am I getting too personal? Sort of like judging someone by the words of one of their church’s pastors, eh?
